Planet of the Apes

"Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!" Mondo Tees created a fantastic series of posters for the Planet of the Apes franchise last May during a screening series at the Alamo Drafthouse called "Day of the Apes". For some reason, these posters are just getting revealed in full online now, and extras will be sold off this week. A number of different sites (via Collider) have unveiled five of the official posters for the five movies in the franchise, with a sixth one promoting the event thrown in for good measure, too. If you're an Apes fanatic like our own Brandon Tenney, you'll go crazy for these posters. Check ’em out below!

Here's all six Planet of the Apes posters organized chronologically for the films in the franchise, with the sixth "Go Ape" one added in there as well (which you'll get if you buy the entire set). Click on any of these to view them full-size. More info on how to buy any extra leftover prints of them beneath these. Here they are:

Artists who designed these are: Planet of the Apes - Martin Ansin; Beneath the Planet of the Apes - Ken Taylor; Escape from the Planet of the Apes - Rich Kelly; Conquest of the Planet of the Apes - Phantom City Creative; Battle for the Planet of the Apes - Florian Bertmer; and Go Ape! - Jason Edmiston.

Most of these are being printed as hand-numbered, 24" x 36" screen prints, and they're gorgeous. According to the info on SlashFilm, it looks like there are about 300 of each available for sale. Mondo Tees will sell a set of all six of them for $230 (damn good price!) starting tomorrow, Thursday, January 26th. Individual prints will also go on sale on Friday, January 27th. You can follow @MondoNews for updates and alerts on when they go on sale; they'll be hard to get. Additional variant versions will be sold later on by Sideshow Collectibles. I'm definitely going to try and get my hand on a few of these! Which one is your favorite?

    awesome set, i especially liked "escape from planetofthah[;bf00d8..." albeit the last was a little unoriginal, in my opinion-but what the hell do i know?
  • A Class
    They're all gorgeous, but I'm going to have to go with original Planet of the Apes poster.
  • Croniccris
    i think ima have to go with beneath the planet of the apes yo

    News aggregate sites have picked up word that Spielberg is directing a Moses epic, and here we're reading yet ANOTHER gushing post about the world's ugliest poster outlet, Mondo. Seriously?
    • peloquin
      Seriously? That news is about 3 months old and Alex has already covered it in great detail here: http://www.firstshowing.net/2011/steven-spielberg-in-talks-to-part-the-red-sea-for-gods-and-kings/ Get your facts straight before you go criticizing something...
      • Blurb
        Facts straight or not, the criticism is apt. Mondo posters are hella ugly, and do not need to be headlined every week.

          The fact that you just said "Hella" causes you to lose all credibility in your statements, but I can tell you that I've been reading this site for about 7 years and The Alamo Drafthouse plays a very important part in contemporary cinema and pop culture.  The cult following caused by their events and posters causes Hollywood executives to take notice and mold their business models around them to suit the desires of the demographic seen in Austin. And on a more objective note, I purchased a Mondo poster 3 years ago for a limited print of Robocop.  I paid $30 for the poster back then and I could easily sell it for over $100 now.  Not many movie posters these days have that much return in investment for such a short period of time.  These are original works of art and I'm grateful that Firstshowing gives its readers the opportunity to invest in them before anyone else.

            #1. The fact that you responded to a statement with no credibility with an additional three paragraphs causes you to lose all credibility. #2. I live in Austin. The Alamo Drafthouse is one of the least significant establishments in Texas, except to hipsters. #3. Quadruple posting does not get your credibility back.

    I don't know what's up with the site that it would cause the quadruple post, but you're right to blame me for that and use it to strengthen your argument.  I seriously doubt you live in Austin, but if you do then you don't know how lucky you are to have a place that allows you to see classic cult films in an environment which creates a unique cinematic experience where you can enjoy a meal and even events such as a filmmaker Q and A on a regular basis.  I don't understand your first point about the length of my reply making my argument less valid so if you could elaborate on that point I'd appreciate it so I can craft a thought out rebuttal.  The Alamo Draft House is well known throughout the country to be the pioneer of spreading cult cinema by allowing the audience to experience a film as the film maker envisioned while providing the creature comforts of home.  They have created a business model which combats piracy and the rest of Hollywood should take note that it's not just about the film, but about a unique cinematic experience.  If that makes me a hipster than I guess I'm a hipster, but I prefer cinephile.
    • Blurb
      You're still arguing with someone whom you've already deemed to be without credibility. Hypocrite much? And yes, I do have a place where I can enjoy a unique cinematic experience and a good meal: it's called My House. And I get to do it without having to sit through juvenile ads telling me whether I can or can't use my phone while watching a film I paid to see.
      • peloquin
        I'm not arguing, I'm debating so that others who read this can make an informed decision about the quality of the product created at The Alamo Draft House and Mondo.  You keep resorting to name calling which tells me that you don't have much solid evidence about why people should spend their money else where.  By saying that you'd rather sit at home and watch a film you've proven my point that we need more Alamo Draft Houses throughout the country to get people back into theaters to experience a film as the film makers intended.  The fact that you'd like to use your phone during a film tells me that you're not the target audience to see a film at the Alamo Draft House and I'm glad they keep people like you out anyways.  If you enjoy ruining the experience for others by using your phone while in a theater than I suggest a matinee at your local mall where the screaming children won't mind it if you use your phone. If you continue to stay at home and pirate film or watch them on Red Box then eventually you'll have nothing to watch because theater chains will go out of business.  You should support the film makers you enjoy seeing and respect them enough to vote with you ticket purchase so that the film makers will continue to provide you with entertainment.
        • Blurb
          Thanks for the sermon. Unfortunately you have confused the nature of the Alamo Draft House - which is preservation - with the trending theme of the entertainment film industry - which is convenience.
          • peloquin
            Could you please expand upon that?  I seriously doubt that film goers want convenience more than they want an original experience.  Personally, I'd rather go to a cinema and watch a film with 20 speakers and an IMAX screen than watch a bootleg copy on my laptop.  I enjoy supporting the artists who provide me with quality entertainment and I respect them enough to see the film in the format that it was intended even if watching it on my iPhone is more convenient.  From what I've gathered, you would like for all theater chains to go out of business and for Hollywood to focus their business models solely on DVD and VOD?
  • ... lovely posters but my favorites are Escape and Conquest. BTW I do think this is no news worthy, but perhaps you could include articles like this in another section? Just my two cents...
