Based on the 1963 French novel “La Planete des Singes” by Pierre Boulle, it was adapted into a string of five films between 1968 and 1973. The original 1968 film “Planet of the Apes,” starred Charlton Heston, and centered on the tale of an astronaut inadvertently sent through a space-time distortion and crash-landing on a primitive planet ruled by apes. Soon after, Heston’s character, George Taylor, was put in a zoo full of animalistic humans, before escaping with the help of compassionate chimpanzee scientists. However, the astronaut soon discovered he had not landed on an alien planet at all, but Earth in the far future following a nuclear war. Following this, the Earth would be destroyed, but that only marked the beginning of the long-running series. Join http://www.WatchMojo.com as we take a look back at the Planet of the Apes franchise.
