     We love art and  illustration.  The movie poster work of Drew Struzan, Richard Amsel, Frank McCarthy and Bob McGinnis; the cinematic concept depictions of Joe Johnston, Ken Adam, Ralph McQuarrie and Neville Page; the lush character-based comic book world of Jack Kirby, Jim Steranko, Adam Hughes and everyone in between.  Inspired by early masters of light, shape, form and visual structure like Renoir, Rodin and Magritte, contemporary illustrators, cinematographers and directors (James Cameron, Ridley Scott, Clive Barker, David Lynch and Guillermo del Toro are all accomplished illustrator / painter / artists in their own right) know that, even above and beyond the written world,  early concept illustrations are the best and most effective way to breathe the emotional "soul" of a proposed film project into the heart and mind (the very consciousness) of a prospective audience ... not to mention studio execs and financial backers

   Here in GALLERIES we celebrate the all too often unsung heroes who's work more often than not is seldom seen by the general public.

Official Press release:

“RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES” is a completely new take on one of the Studio’s most beloved and successful franchises. Oscar-winning visual effects house WETA Digital — employing the groundbreaking technologies developed for AVATAR — will render, for the first time ever in the film series, photo-realistic apes rather than costumed actors. This is an origin story in the truest sense of the term. Set in present day San Francisco, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale, a science fiction/science fact blend, where man’s own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.

Starring JAMES FRANCO, FREIDA PINTO, JOHN LITHGOW, BRIAN COX, TOM FELTON and ANDY SERKIS, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES will be in theaters on August 5, 2011.
