Everything you need to know about 'Planet of the Apes'

New, 3 comments

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is opening this week, and it's already attracted critical acclaim. It's the sequel to 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the eighth Apes film overall. Or to put it another way, it's "The Sequel to the Loose Remake of the Conquest of the Planet of the Apes." Okay, so that title isn't quite as catchy. Joshua Topolsky takes a look back at all eight films and makes an impassioned plea to go watch the original five-film series right now. Literally. Right. Now. Go.
