Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The original Planet of the Apes was weird enough now, as "reimagined" by Tim Burton in a new movie, it promises even more oddness. Planet of the Apes: A Newmarket Pictorial Moviebook Including the Screenplay features Burton's screenplay, an introduction by the filmmaker, pictures from the set and the film and quotes from the cast. Excellent photographs, detailed sketches and drawings both from the movie and behind the scenes provide extensive information, each page grabbing the reader's attention with entertaining visuals.

Format: Paperback
I have the hard copy, and its a very nice souvenir or memory of the Tim Burton film. The book itself has tons of awesome movie stills, hand drawn storyboards, a section on the mask making process, costume designs, amazing transformations of actors into chimps, plus the entire screenplay word for word. I also enjoyed the full page key info on every one of the star actors.

Being a huge Planet of the Apes fan (as well as Tim Burton) since its inception back in my teenage years(1968)..I don't think its fair to rate the movie or plot here. The book is a nice way to learn more about the film, film making, special effects, and Tim Burton's creative process. Very nice collector's item...if you can find the discounted version even better.

I liked this book overall, and it was interesting to see the changes and deletions between te script and the finished film. The big problem I had was the omission of the ending scene in the screenplay, it just seems like a cop out to protect a secret that was already out at the time of the book's release A WEEK AFTER THE MOVIE CAME OUT. I wanted this book in hardback but for somereason it never came available, and I ended up settling for the paperback version. I have a feeling the Cinefex magazine covering Planet of the Apes will be much more informative for a lot less money.

The copy of this book I have does NOT have the surprise ending that is in the film. I won't spoil the ending, but neither will this screenplay....

This is a beautifull book about the 2001 version of Planet of the Apes directed by Tim Burton.
It is varied, with lots articles on many aspects of the film and richly illustrated througout with incredible film and "behind the camera" images. Additionally you will find the complete screenplay with related photos. All those elements combined make it an excpetional piece of film memorabilia.
Overall, this book does a great service to a movie that continues the great myth of "Planet of the Apes".
