Synopsis

After drifting in space for centuries, astronaut Ulysses and his crew crash land on a planet in the year 3889. They find primitive humans, but are attacked by hunters on horseback who are revealed to be intelligent apes. The apes kill the crew and capture Ulysses, bringing him to a medical center for study. Human slave Jonah sneaks Ulysses a key that allows him to escape. Exploring the center, Ulysses overhears the apes Zira and Dr. Zaius discussing his fate; Zaius wants him executed. Eventually, Ulysses fakes his death and is brought to a morgue. There, Jonah and his friends reveal that Ulysses is on Earth, and that his arrival fulfills an ancient prophecy that said a savior would return to restore humankind.

The human rebels give Ulysses one piece of an ancient relic and instruct him to retrieve the other two hidden by other tribes of humans. He heads to a ruined city, where he frees the human Nova and finds the second relic piece guarded by gorilla General Ursus. He also finds a secret file revealing that Ursus plans to use chimpanzee Dr. Cornelius’ human genetics research, combined with information gleaned from studying ancient human sites, to advance the gorillas over the other apes. With help from Nova and her brother Mathias, he heads to Ape University, where Cornelius agrees to destroy his research so the gorillas cannot misuse it. Ulysses attempts to rescue Jonah from an ape prison; Jonah dies, but tells Ulysses the final relic piece is in the State Archives. Ulysses recovers the final piece and returns to Nova and Mathias.

The three pieces combine to form a map to the «Forbidden Place», located at the Statue of Liberty, which leads to . There, he learns the history of how the apes took over the planet: after a devastating war, humans bred genetically advanced apes as slaves. The apes rebelled and killed most humans; survivors escaped to a subterranean «Ark Project». Ulysses makes contact with the Arkanites, advanced humans still living underground, and encourages them to reunite with their brethren on the surface to defeat the apes. With his evidence, Ulysses travels to the Ape Palace to expose General Ursus before the council. Ursus is arrested, and Dr. Zaius releases Ulysses. The closing scene shows Ulysses departing with Nova, while the human forces and Arkanites amass to attack the apes.

Production

Discussions for a Planet of the Apes television series were made by producer Arthur P. Jacobs as early as 1971. Because of the success of the films, the idea of a television series was put on hold until after the completion of Battle for the Planet of the Apes in the first half of 1973.[1] However, shortly after the premiere of Battle, Jacobs died, and his production company APJAC Productions sold all Planet of the Apes rights and privileges to 20th Century Fox.[2] Subsequently, television rights for the first three Planet of the Apes films were sold to CBS and aired successfully in September 1973. Based largely on high viewership of «movie-of-the-week» TV broadcasts of the first few films, CBS began to focus away from other contenders for a new science-fiction series, including Gene Roddenberry’s Genesis II (1973) and look solely at the prospects for an Apes TV series.[3] Fox and CBS went on to continue Jacob’s plans of a series the following year.[4]

CBS ordered 14 episodes of Planet of the Apes to be produced. The series was filmed for the most part on location at what is now Malibu Creek State Park, with a budget of about $250,000 for each episode.[5] Originally slated to air during CBS’s Tuesday night family hour,[6] the first regular episode of the series aired on Friday, September 13, 1974 from 8:00-9:00 PM. The remainder of the series aired in this same time slot until December 27, 1974, when its 14th and final broadcast was shown as a result of a premature cancellation of the series due to low ratings.

Trivia

Turning down the part of Zira was one of Ingrid Bergman’s greatest regrets. Much surprised at how well the finished film turned out, she later confided to her daughter Isabella Rossellini that in hindsight the film would have been an ideal opportunity for her to «disregard her regal bearing». She also regretted missing the opportunity of working with Charlton Heston. See more »

And that completes my final report until we reach touchdown. We’re now on full automatic, in the hands of the computers. I have tucked my crew in for the long sleep and I’ll be joining them soon.

Романправить

Два богатых космических путешественника — Джинн и Филлипс — находят бутылку с посланием от некого Уиллиса, в котором тот рассказывает свою историю.

На Земле наступил век космических перелётов, и журналист Уиллис Меру решил принять участие в экспедиции профессора Антеля к далекой планете, которую люди прозвали Соророй (с латинского — «сестра», за поразительную схожесть с нашим миром). Совершив посадку, космонавты начинают осмотр окрестностей и случайно встречают возле водопада дикую девушку, которую называют Новой, а затем целое племя людей. Но землян сильно озадачивает то, что аборигены Сороры совершено не разговаривают и не знают даже самых примитивных инструментов, точно дикие животные. Ручного шимпанзе, сопровождавшего членов экспедиции, Нова убивает, а потом дикие люди грабят лагерь. Земляне решают проследить за племенем, но неожиданно подвергаются охотничьей облаве разумных горилл, одетых и вооружённых как охотники XX в. Часть племени и учёных погибает, а остальные (включая Уиллиса и Нову) оказываются в клетках.

Пленённых людей везут в обезьяний город — там Уиллис наблюдает, как приматы занимаются своими делами: точь-в-точь, как люди

Его и ещё нескольких человек отправляют в Институт высшей физиологии, где он благодаря своему интеллекту быстро привлекает к себе внимание заведующей отделением — шимпанзе Зиры. Для изучения брачных ритуалов людей Нову сажают в одну клетку с Уиллисом, чему тот очень радуется, т. к

успел влюбиться в прекрасную дикарку. Институт навещает высокопоставленный профессор орангутан Зайюс, но, несмотря на все попытки Меру доказать тому свою разумность, спесивый и консервативный ректор считает его лишь более сообразительным, нежели прочие люди. Уиллису удаётся наладить контакт с Зирой, доказав той свою разумность и выучить обезьяний язык.

Зира готовил план, как представить разумного человека обществу, пока тот изучает обезьянью культуру и историю. В итоге шимпанзе знакомит человека со своим женихом — учёным Корнелием, и вместе им удается добиться того, чтобы Уиллис выступил на ежегодном конгрессе учёных. Осмысленная речь и поведение Меру вызывает у приматов шок, а затем восторг, и он становится полноправным членом общества. В зоопарке, в вольере с дикими людьми, он встречает профессора Антеля, но к своему ужасу понимает, что тот деградировал, превратившись в животное.

Меру помогает Корнелию при раскопках древнего города, в котором находят детскую куклу, когда-то принадлежащей человеческой девочке. Посетив секретную лабораторию, где проводились исследования генетической памяти людей, им удаётся узнать, что на Сороре когда-то существовала человеческая цивилизация, но люди начали деградировать, а обезьяны, наоборот, умнеть, и наконец они во главе с шимпанзе Симосом подняли бунт, заняв место своих бывших господ. Нова рожает ребёнка от Уиллиса, и Корнелий с Зирой предупреждают того об возможной опасности — восторг прошёл, и теперь обезьяны начали беспокоится о том, что пришелец станет угрозой их миру. Друзья Уиллиса помогают тому сбежать вместе с женой и ребёнком и добраться до космического шаттла, все еще дожидающегося членов экспедиции. Они летят на Землю, но, в соответствии с теорией релятивистского замедления времени, в родном мире прошло 800 лет, и выйдя на улицу, журналист встречает разумных обезьян.

Дочитав историю «разумного человека», влюблённая пара шимпанзе Джинн и Филлипс приходит к выводу, что это глупая шутка: ведь всем известно, что разумных людей не существует.

Тропы и штампы[править]

  • Злобная обезьяна. В романе обезьяны не только и не столько злы, они просто разумны, в то время как люди опустились до животного состояния. И относятся обезьяны к людям так же, как люди в своё время к обезьянам.
  • На тебе! — так как роман является сатирой, то в нем полно пародий на все не самые приятные аспекты людского жития. Самый показательный пример — скудоумные учёные-орангутаны, готовые лечь костьми, лишь бы никто не опроверг старые научные теории.
  • Прелесть какая глупенькая — Нова. Педаль в асфальт, она не просто «глупая», но вообще неразумная. Но прекрасна, как богиня.
  • Стагнатор — орангутаны, из-за которых цивилизация обезьян на сотни лет застряла на уровне XX века.
  • Твист Р. Л. Стайна — концовка романа. За то время, что ГГ провел на планете разумных обезьян, на его родной Земле произошла точно такая же «революция».
  •  — здесь люди настолько дикие, что иного оправдания их существованию, кроме рабства, разумные и цивилизованные обезьяны не видят.

Development

PC and PlayStation version

In 1998, 20th Century Fox greenlit the most recent of several attempts at a Planet of the Apes film remake, to be produced by James Cameron. The company’s video game division Fox Interactive prepared to develop a video game tie-in. Cameron dropped out and the film project went on hold, but confident a remake would progress sooner or later, Fox proceeded with the video game.[6] It was the first ever Planet of the Apes video game;[6] Fox had attempted a game for the Atari 2600, but abandoned it amid the video game crash of 1983 (new designers completed and released this game as Revenge of the Apes in 2003).[7][8] Fox Interactive contracted French video game developer Visiware to design the Planet of the Apes game. With the film in limbo, the creators developed a new story inspired by Pierre Boulle’s original novel Planet of the Apes and the 1968 film version.[9] The designers felt an action-adventure game would best suit the material and available technology.[6] They developed the game for PC, PlayStation, and Sega Dreamcast, though they scrapped the Dreamcast version when Sega discontinued the console. Rather than publish the game themselves, Fox Interactive opted to co-publish with a third party. This move, which industry professionals took as a sign that the division was in decline, resulted in major production delays.[10]

The game was officially announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 1999.[11] The film project subsequently went forward under director Tim Burton; the film, released as Planet of the Apes in 2001, had a substantially different premise and story than the video game.[10] Fox launched a major marketing campaign for the game in 2000, but release was delayed into 2001. Despite the long development, the game missed the July 27, 2001 debut of Tim Burton’s film, though Fox Interactive stated that they hoped it would reduce confusion among consumers expecting a straightforward tie-in.[10] On September 6, 2001, Fox Interactive announced a new co-publishing partnership for all its titles with Ubisoft, enabling them to finally release Planet of the Apes.[9] The PlayStation version was released on May 30, 2001; the PC version appears in stores on September 20, 2001;[12] the PlayStation version finally appeared on August 22, 2002.

Game Boy version

In addition, Ubisoft planned a version for Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Color.[9] Created in partnership with developer Torus Games, the games were released December 5, 2001 and December 31, 2002, respectively. The Game Boy version is considerably different from Visiware’s PC and PlayStation game; it is a side-scroller and follows the plot of the 1968 film and its 1970 sequel, Beneath the Planet of the Apes. The player controls human Ben as he searches for the films’ hero, Taylor, over the course of ten levels, fighting ape warriors and other enemies.

Storyline

It is the year 2029: Astronaut Leo Davidson boards a pod cruiser on a Space Station for a «routine» reconnaissance mission. But an abrupt detour through a space time wormhole lands him on a strange planet where talking apes rule over the human race. With the help of a sympathetic chimpanzee activist named Ari and a small band of human rebels, Leo leads the effort to evade the advancing Gorilla Army led by General Thade and his most trusted warrior Attar. Now the race is on to reach a sacred temple within the planet’s Forbidden Zone to discover the shocking secrets of mankind’s past — and the key to its future.

Plot

In a frame story, a rich couple sailing alone in space, Jinn and Phyllis, rescue and translate a manuscript from a floating bottle.[3] The manuscript was written by journalist Ulysse Mérou, who in the year 2500 was invited by wealthy Professor Antelle to accompany him and his disciple, physician Arthur Levain, to Betelgeuse.

Because they travel close to the speed of light, time dilation causes centuries to pass on Earth during their two years in transit. They land their shuttle on a temperate, lushly forested planet which they name Soror (Latin for sister). They can breathe the air, drink the water and eat the fruit. Attracted by a lovely golden naked woman whom they call Nova, they swim below a scenic waterfall. She is frightened by their pet chimpanzee, Hector, and strangles it. Her tribe, who exhibit the behavior of dumb animals, wreck the newcomers’ clothing and shuttle.

Gorillas, fully dressed as hunters, attack the tribe with firearms. Many are killed, including Arthur. Ulysse is captured with the survivors and brought to an entire city populated by apes. Ape clothing matches that of 20th century Earth humans, except that the apes wear gloves instead of shoes on their prehensile feet. The apes smoke tobacco, photograph their hunting trophies, drink through straws and appear utterly civilized. Their society is divided into three strata: aggressive gorilla police and military, conservative orangutan politicians and religious authorities, and liberal chimpanzee scientists.

In an urban biological research facility, Ulysse recognizes Pavlov’s dog conditioning being used on captured humans. He is mated with Nova. Curious chimpanzee researcher Zira takes an interest in his geometric drawings and his ability to speak a few simian words. With help from her fiancé, Cornélius, Ulysse makes a speech in front of several thousand apes. He is granted freedom and is given tailored clothing. Antelle reverts to primitive humanity in the zoo and is moved to the laboratory for safety, where he is mated to a young female.

Cornélius, an archaeologist, excavates an ancient human city.[3] An unconscious human lab subject recites from racial memory the events that led to the fall of human civilization: humans tamed apes and eventually used them as servants. Things began to change. As apes learned to talk, a cerebral laziness took hold of the humans. Apes gradually took over human homes, driving the humans into camps outside of the cities. In the final memory, apes attacked the last human camp, carrying only whips.

Nova bears Ulysse a son, Sirius, who walks and talks at three months. Fearing for their lives, they take the place of the human test subjects in a space flight experiment. Because all humans look alike to apes, they are able to escape without notice and they rendezvous with the orbiting ship.

Ulysse programs the ship back to Earth. As they fly over Paris, Orly Airport and the Eiffel Tower look the same. When they land, however, they are greeted by a field officer in a who is a gorilla.

It is subsequently revealed, via the frame story, that Jinn and Phyllis are actually civilized chimpanzees, and they discard Ulysse’s story as sheer fantasy because the idea of humans as speaking and civilized members of society is an utterly unbelievable concept to them.

During its long delayed development, Planet of the Apes generated bad pre-release press. Its gameplay was poorly received at its Electronic Entertainment Expo previews, with many commentors comparing it unfavorably to similar older games like Doom. Additionally, some critics considered Fox Interactive’s decision to hire Visiware a mistep, as French developers of the period had a reputation for creating games with solid graphics but poor play. Others questioned the wisdom of basing the game on the decades-old original films rather than the remake.[10]

Upon release, the PC and PlayStation versions received negative reviews from critics. Looking at the PC version, review aggregator website Metacritic calculated a score of 41/100 based on eleven critics, indicating «generally unfavorable reviews».[18] By comparison, GameRankings calculated a score of 48.79% for the PC version, based on fourteen reviews,[14] and 60.00% for the PlayStation version, based on one review.[15] Erik Wolpaw of GameSpot called Planet of the Apes an «ugly, boring Tomb Raider clone», considering the game’s environments, combat mechanics, and puzzles weak.[5] Ivan Sulic of IGN wrote, «it’s not that Planet of the Apes is truly bad across the boards — just that it’s truly mediocre,» finding the controls and gameplay middling and the graphics out of date.[12] Nick Woods of AllGame enjoyed the dialogue-heavy story sequences, but wrote that the positive elements could not make up for the nauseating interface and movement.[3] GameZone’s review found the sound and graphics to be highlights, but wrote that overall, the game «doesn’t really toe the mark».[4]

The Game Boy versions received mixed reviews. Looking at the Game Boy Advance version, Metacritic calculated an average score of 54/100 based on six reviews, indicating «mixed or average reviews».[19] GameRankings calculated a 59.44% average for the Game Boy Advance version, based on nine reviews,[16] and a 40.00% average for the Game Boy Color version, based on one review.[17] Hilary Goldstein of IGN gave the game a rating of 6.0 out of 10, calling it a «decent side-scroller that fails to truly impress».

Telefilms

In 1980, several episodes of the series were edited into five made-for-television movies.

  • Back to the Planet of the Apes («Escape from Tomorrow» & «The Trap»)[11]
  • Forgotten City of the Planet of the Apes («Gladiators» & «Legacy»)
  • Treachery and Greed on the Planet of the Apes («Horse Race» & «The Tyrant»)
  • Life, Liberty and Pursuit on the Planet of the Apes («The Surgeon» & «The Interrogation»)
  • Farewell to the Planet of the Apes («Tomorrow’s Tide» & «Up Above The World So High»)

When the Planet of the Apes telefilms entered syndication, ABC’s owned and operated stations, who picked them up for their afternoon movie programs (under titles such as The 4:30 Movie), called upon Roddy McDowall to re-create his role of Galen in a series of new openings and closings specifically for these stations, billed as «The New Planet of the Apes.» The introductions originally created by 20th Century Fox to open each film were replaced by a now-aged Galen (McDowall) looking back on the events of the telefilms. The openings and closings revealed Virdon and Burke’s final fates: «They found their computer in another city and disappeared into space as suddenly as they’d arrived.» According to «TV Zone Special #17» (1995 issue) McDowall filmed these «two years after the demise of the first run episodes of the Planet of the Apes television series», which would be December, 1976. The ABC openings and closings of these telefilms were neither aired on other stations nor included on any home media release.
