Winnipeg Actor In #1 Movie

WINNIPEG, MB – I had a chance to visit with Aleks Paunovic, just as the Winnipegger’s new movie went number one in North America. He plays the ape Winter in the new Planet Of The Apes movie, War For The Planet Of The Apes. It opened over the weekend with more than $56 million, knocking Spider-Man Homecoming into second spot.

The Sisler grad has never forgot about Winnipeg and he was so excited to be here at home with family and friends when his new movie was released and went to the top of the box office.

Aleks says they even sent him to “Ape Camp” to teach him how to move and act for the role. The photo above shows Aleks in his motion capture gear before they turn him into an ape.

Aleks is currently working on the next season of Dirk Gently and you’ll also be able to see him in the new season of Van Helsing in September. Both are on Netfluix.
