This box set contains all five films in the 'Planet of the Apes' series. In the original film, a group of Earth astronauts, led by Colonel George Taylor crash land on a strange planet, where mute humans are treated as slaves by intelligent apes. In 'Beneath the Planet of the Apes', NASA send an astronaut on a rescue mission when Taylor's crew fail to return to Earth. In 'Escape from the Planet of the Apes', the sympathetic chimps of the first two films, Zira and Cornelius, escape the nuclear devastation of the Earth by travelling back in time in Taylor's spaceship, arriving in Los Angeles in the year 1973. In 'Conquest of the Planet of the Apes', the year is now 1991. Following a plague which wiped out all cats and dogs, apes have been adopted as pets by humans, but when Zira and Cornelius' son Caesar sees them being treated as slaves, he leads his brother simians in rebellion against their overlords. 'Battle for the Planet of the Apes' opens in 2670 with civil war being fermented by ambitious gorilla general Aldo. Also included is previously unseen footage and interviews with cast and crew members.
