WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES
MATT REEVES (Director) gained feature film prominence when he
helmed the much lauded science fiction-horror hit Cloverfield (2008), about the
arrival of a giant monster in New York City and its impact on the lives of
several people there. Shot in hyper-realistic verite style with a single camera
carried by one of the protagonists, the film spoke to post-9/11 fears while
delivering a special effects tour de force. The modestly budgeted film set a
domestic record for a January release and went on to gross more than $175
Following Cloverfield, Reeves wrote and directed Let Me In (2010). Acclaimed by
critics and audiences alike, the film is a remake of the Swedish horror film Let
the Right One In, about the relationship between a bullied young boy (Kodi
Smit-McPhee) and his new neighbor, a young girl who turns out to be a vampire.
Reeves' Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, starring Andy Serkis, Gary Oldman, Jason
Clarke, Toby Kebbell and frequent collaborators Keri Russell and Kodi
Smit-McPhee, grossed $700m at the worldwide box office.
He lives with his wife and son in Los Angeles.
