This Sunday Badass Digest and Fantastic Fest present Day of the Apes, a full day, five film marathon of the original and classic Planet of the Apes movies! I’m so excited about this event that I’m flying into Austin for it, since I’ve never seen ANY of the Apes films on the big screen.
You probably know all about Planet of the Apes, but have you seen the incredible sequels? This series is truly one of the most amazing and insane franchises in history, and every single sequel offers something truly loony and jaw dropping. And the series seemed intent on one-upping the shock ending of the first, which is just wonderful.
The Alamo’s Zack Carlson wrote an ode to the Planet of the Apes sequels for Movies.com, which you can read here. Below I’ve embedded all of the trailers for the five films. Warning: they’re kind of spoilery; if you think trailers give everything away today, you should check out the trailer for Escape, which walks you through every single beat of the movie.
