Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of one of Hollywood's Most Legendary Classics, Fox Home Entertainment Presents

Planet of the Apes Collectors Edition

Landmark Films Available On August 18 For A Limited Time Only

CENTURY CITY, Calif., (July 8, 1998) -- Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the theatrical debut of the landmark sci-fi classic, Planet of the Apes, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment (TCFHE) releases the spectacular, original movie, fully restored and THX-certified for the first time, on video for a limited time only. Baby-boomers, sci-fi fans and avid film collectors alike will enjoy this groundbreaking suspense-filled adventure about a world where primates rule and man is feared and loathed as both enemy and slave. Charleton Heston, Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter and James Whitmore headline this must-have collection, available at retail on August 18.

As part of the anniversary celebration, TCFHE has also re-mastered and THX-certified the four exciting Planet of the Apes sequels, including Escape from the Planet of the Apes, Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes and Battle for the Planet of the Apes. Planet of the Apes Collector's Edition is available as a five-pack for $49.98 U.S. ($59.98 Canada) in pan and scan and in widescreen for $54.98 U.S. ($64.98 Canada) and individually (pan and scan only) for 414.98 ($16.98 Canada). Single units on widescreen are available only with the original Planet of the Apes and are priced at $19.98 U.S. ($22.98 Canada). As an exclusive gift to consumers who purchase all five films, Fox is offering a brand new, full-length documentary feature, Behind the Planet of the Apes. Hosted by Roddy McDowall, this exciting one of a kind collectible contains intriguing behind-the-scenes footage as well as actor and filmmaker interviews. Each of the Planet of the Apes videocassettes, both pan and scan and widescreen editions, feature the original theatrical trailer. Additionally, the widescreen editions also include an exciting two minutes of behind-the-scenes footage on each videocassette.

Critically and commercially acclaimed, Planet of the Apes was awarded an honorary Academy AwardŽ for Outstanding Make-up Achievement and nominated for Best Costume Design and Original Score. The film was so successful that in addition to the four theatrical sequels, a 1974 television series, a 1975 animated television series, a variety of books and novelizations and one of the largest licensed merchandise campaigns of its time were created.
