Overview

Planet of the Apes: The Ultimate DVD Collection

In what could be one of the most glorious box sets ever to grace the sacred shelves of geek-loving film admirers anywhere, the 14-disc Planet of the Apes: The Ultimate DVD Collection features every bit of Apes-related celluloid goodness, all housed in a massive ape bust that puts every other Region 1 set to shame. While the Japanese have benefited from such stellar sets as the Alien Quadrilogy Head Bust, collectors across the ocean in America have gotten the short end of the stick as far as these kind of massive sets go -- until now. Limited to 10,000 in the U.S., this special set of ape goodness works as a centerpiece and as an exhaustive bundle of every film and TV episode ever dedicated to the sci-fi series. The DVDs include both two-disc versions of the Planet of the Apes: 35th Anniversary Edition as well as the two-disc release of Tim Burton's doomed 2001 remake. Additionally, 20th Century Fox has included all four original sequels, the complete 1974 Planet of the Apes live-action TV series, as well as the complete 1975 animated TV series. Of all the "Ultimate DVD Collections" out there, this one above all others most definitely lives up to its name and will be remembered as certainly the most outrageous DVD packages of all of 2006.
