If You’ve Ever Wanted to Be an Ape on a Big Screen, War for the Planet of the Apes Has a Contest for That

During Sunday night’s Walking Dead slot, 20th Century Fox aired a commercial for Matt Reeves’s forthcoming War for the Planet of the Apes. The spot wasn’t to reveal a teaser or trailer (unless you count a couple seconds of definitely warlike footage), but a competition aimed at getting one fan to join a scene as a motion-capture extra. No acting experience required — just a valid passport (Canadian vacation alert!), a YouTube video of your best ape impersonation, and a willingness to participate in what’s being touted as Caesar’s greatest battle.

Watch above for full details, and enter here. (I want to say, Yeah, this sounds kind of absurd, but then again, who knows? Maybe you’ll become the next Andy Millman?) The film, which stars Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, Judy Greer, and Maybe You, among others, is due out July 14, 2017.
