Two things first. One, War for the Planet of the Apes is an entirely excellent bit of popcorn drama, the first summer movie of 2017 (an important, subtly different thing than any old movie released in the summer) that I think has a fighting chance of still being passionately remembered 20 years hence, but having seen it, I am in no ways surprised by its quick fade at the box office.
Planet of the Apes ends famously. And since it's now been 50 years since the April 1968 wide release of the original Planet of the Apes, it's a spoiler that can be discussed openly.But more.
The Planet of the Apes has been awing generations for nearly 50 years now. This shocking film reverses the dominate roll that humans currently play on planet earth, giving all of the power to our primate cousins. Many people remember the final scene in the 1968 movie where George Taylor looks on at a buried statue of liberty and realizes that civilization is doomed. Ever since that dramatic.Planet of the Apes is a 2001 American science fiction film directed by Tim Burton and starring Mark Wahlberg, Tim Roth, Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Clarke Duncan, Paul Giamatti, and Estella Warren.The sixth film produced in the Planet of the Apes franchise, it was loosely adapted from Pierre Boulle's 1963 novel of the same name and the 1968 film version.I'm confused by the final scene in the Planet of the Apes film (2001, not the recent Rise film). Leo lands on Earth in his own time to find it run by the Apes. How does this happen? I'm assuming that the Ape planet they're on for the majority of the film is not Earth, as we're certainly not given any reason to believe it is Earth that I can tell.
In this version it's just another planet, the apes are there because they were on the ship which crashed after going looking for Mark and the monkey. The wait worked was that the person who goes in first comes out last. The monkey goes first then mark then the ship so by the end of the film the ship is super old and then the monkey turns up like some sort of missing link jesus. When Mark gets.
War for the Planet of the Apes brought an end to Caesar’s story, but the Planet of the Apes franchise will continue. We found out in December that a new film was on the way from The Maze Runner.
Credit Where It’s Due. There are some positives that have to be stated, though. Even though Burton wrongly thought of Planet of the Apes as just a creature feature, the makeup in the film does.

Tim Burton's 2001 Planet of the Apes reboot A spacestation orbiting saturn goes through a warp which lands them on an inhabitable planet and massively increases the apes' intelligence. So far, so good, I'm willing to suspend my disbelief for that.
Summary. Planet of the Apes is a science fiction media franchise that originated from a 1963 french novel by Pierre Boulle but was brought into popularity and given a pop culture status as a movie in 1968. What followed was various sequels and prequels (which then spawned two TV series), a remake in 2001, various comics and video games across the decades, and most recently, a reboot trilogy.
It's all the more impressive given that Dawn. is in a great many respects an uncredited remake of 1973's Battle for the Planet of the Apes, the worst of the now eight Apes films (yes, worse than than the deadening Tim Burton film from 2001, which at least had some great design and make-up Author's Note, July 2017: I have since thought better of that opinion).
In a larger sense, the ending evokes the ending of the Planet of the Apes novel, where the hero has an adventure on a planet ruled by apes, and then inexplicably finds Earth ruled by apes upon his return.
