"Planet of the Apes" PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Released in 1967, Planet of the Apes was a top-ten box-office hit that captivated audiences with its provocative vision of the future. Over the next decade it spawned four sequels, a television series, an animated series, two comic books, and literally hundreds of merchandise tie-ins. To some, the Apes projects were a campy sci-fi blast, with colourful characters and delightfully over-the-top performances. But others took the stories more seriously, as allegories on man's struggles with such issues as race, intolerance, and protection of the environment. With the July 2001 release of Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes remake, the Apes are set to be a cultural phenomenon all over again. The movie will be the first since 1974, and will star Mark Wahlberg, Tim Roth, and Helena Bonham Carter. In the intervening years, the popularity of the original films and TV series has endured and, if anything, grown. PLANET OF THE APES: An Unauthorised History is a comprehensive look at all aspects of the Apes phenomenon including interviews, reviews, complete cast and credits information, and a complete behind-the-scenes look at what made this quirky science-fiction series an enduring classic.
