planet of the apes

It’s hard to resist the sci-fi appeal of a movie like Planet of the Apes, and this sequel is no exception. In a completely different premise from the original, an astronaut crashes on a planet inhabited by apes. Captured by the apes, the astronaut decides to use a homing beacon to return to his ship and rescue the crew.


While Remakes of the original are a fun way to revisit classic films, the most successful remakes of this series have been directed by different directors. This time, Ted Post took on the role of director. The film is based on the original movie, but its story has been slightly adapted for modern audiences. It follows a team of astronauts, including Charlton Heston’s character George Taylor, who crash-lands on a planet where apes have evolved into the dominant species and are subjugating primitive humans.

The second entry in the reboot series is Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), which stars James Franco as Will Rodman and Andy Serkis as Caesar. While it’s not a remake of the 1968 original, it is still a solid film. It has some of the same plotlines, including a revolt against the city of San Francisco. Ultimately, however, it fails to live up to its predecessor in terms of its storyline.

Remakes of Planet of the Ape franchise aren’t without controversy, with the Tim Burton remake being arguably the biggest misstep of Burton’s career. However, he did produce a great reboot trilogy that ran from 2011 to 2017 and focused on the apes’ storyline. This time, Reeves was the director and brought back the apes to life with motion capture.


The recent remakes of the Marvel and Star Wars franchises have raised the level of the franchise’s storytelling. While many projects at Disney have fallen by the wayside, the reboot is a different story entirely. While Marvel’s movies reset the toys for the next film, Star Wars spinoffs tell a series of standalone movies. In addition, each Apes entry moves the chains of the franchise down the field toward a defined end point. For this reason, the Apes reboots don’t need to work double time or carry scenes for no reason other than to make sure the franchise stays alive.

This latest reboot is set to continue the universe established in the most recent trilogy. Director Edgar Wright tweeted in February 2020 that he would continue the legacy of Caesar, whose character was killed off in Rise. Wright also disputed rumors that he was remaking Rise. A new script will be written by Josh Friedman and Rick Jaffa, who previously worked with Fran Walsh on the Batman franchise. The two producers will continue to produce the movie.

Andy Serkis has reportedly expressed interest in returning to the Planet of the Apes franchise. The actor led the trilogy’s most recent films, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and War for the Earth’s Future. The final installment in the trilogy, War for the Planet of the Apes, closed the arc for Caesar and introduced a new group of apes.

Commentary on social issues

In the 1968 movie, “Planet of the Apes,” Charlton Heston plays the cynical astronaut George Taylor. In this sci-fi adventure, apes rule the world and humans are under threat. The film is rife with allusions to 1960s events and race relations. For example, when a gorilla uses a fire hose to fight Taylor, he reminds the audience of Birmingham police using fire hoses on civil rights demonstrators in 1963.

The film also explores issues such as civil rights, racial conflict, and cold war militarism, and women’s roles. It depicts a society in which dominance is essential to survival. Though the story takes place on a fictional planet, it is still important to recognize the political implications of this film franchise. It is a grim allegory of racism, class, and racial divisions.

While the film is an allegory, it flirts with becoming a social issue drama. In the first movie, the apes are held captive in a military prison camp by an erratic colonel. He needs the free labor for his border wall. But the movie also shows white men undergoing discrimination. But in the sequels, the apes are rescued and the human soldiers fight back, despite the fact that the film’s moral ambiguity has been exposed and corrected.

Despite the controversial subject matter, “Planet of the Apes” carries a strong message about human behavior toward animals. While it is a film about freedom, it demonstrates the importance of nature as the true home for all animals. In a subtle yet powerful way, it promotes an animal-centric mindset. Similarly, the film touches on many social issues, including animal testing, the status of animals as property, and animal shelters that supply animals to testing labs for profit.


The popular American science fiction franchise, Planet of the Apes, is the inspiration for a variety of Halloween costumes. In the ninth movie in the series, ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’, humans will once again be at war with the intelligent apes. Here are some ideas for DIY Halloween costumes for your next costume party! Here are some ways to make your own Ape costume!

The costume worn by actor Kim Hunter in the films’ sequels is up for auction at a Woking, Surrey, estate sale, with an estimated PS5,000-plus price tag. It is a four-piece ensemble, featuring a chimpanzee suit, tunic, pants, and undergarment. The suit’s provenance dates back to 1968, when the film series first came out, and features a hand-written label from the famous Hollywood wardrobe design house, Western Costume. The costume has been kept in pristine condition since its creation in the movie, and is expected to fetch a price of PS5,000-plus.

The original Planet of the Apes film featured gorilla soldier costumes, which were worn by the characters in each movie. These costumes consisted of dark leather pants, a red vest, and fake gorilla toe boots. Some costumes had more detail, like a silver rank stripe around the chest. Various other costumes featured similar details to the originals, but did not use the same material. For this movie, the costume designer, John Chambers, pushed the boundaries of realism.

The film is a comedy about a human-ape conflict. As the humans and apes try to make peace, Taylor ends up surrounded by a group of apes who are trying to save their home planet from destruction. As the movie progresses, he meets a female chimpanzee named Ari who is protesting against the mistreatment of humans. After escaping the cage, she offers to help him free his female slave Daena, but he’s unable to free her. Thankfully, Zira’s nephew Lucius helps free Taylor and takes him to the Forbidden Zone outside of Ape City. Zira and Cornelius decide to take Taylor and Nova to this taboo region to collect proof of an earlier non-simian civilization.

The movie was based on the 1963 French novel La Planete des Singes by Pierre Boulle. The movie was the first of a series of five films, which were adapted into TV series and a rebooted version released in 2001. The film was a hit, earning praise for its accurate depiction of animal rights issues and tackling issues like racial relations and the Cold War.

Production values

The first film in the series was released in 1968. The film was directed by Franklin J. Schaffner, with Arthur P. Jacobs serving as the producer. The production took 18 months, but it was well worth the wait. The production values of this film are impressive, especially considering that it is a visual, high-budget production. The film was budgeted at $5.8 million and the cast and crew gathered in Atlanta to create a unique look for the apes. It took 1.5 million to complete the film’s special effects.

For the film’s special effects, Charlie Croughwell enlisted the help of professionals. To make ape-like movements, Notary – a former Cirque du Soliel performer – conducted an “Ape School” for the actors. Hundreds of actors were taught to imitate ape movements and interact with one another in small groups. Notary and his team also worked with the actors to ensure they were interacting with one another, as they would in real life.

Despite its inauspicious beginnings, the film has grown into a solid action movie that oozes thematic layers of a good novel. The author of the original novel considered it one of his lesser works. However, as time went on, the film evolved into a more polished, intelligent sci-fi film that still feels relevant. The film is also a testament to the power of film.
