“We’re proud to welcome Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to New 
Orleans,” Mayor Mitch Landrieu said. “The fact that this production is 
in New Orleans is a testament to the incredible growth of the local 
film industry into a major economic engine, creating jobs and 
supporting existing local businesses and new ventures.”
