Many fans were a bit disappointed when 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment released the original Planet Of The Apes on non-anamorphic widescreen a few years ago. Well, this will soon be rectified, as 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has just announced that in February we will see a 2-disc Special Edition of the film as a 35th Anniversary Edition.
Apart from containing a newly remastered transfer of the movie – available in widescreen and fullscreen – this DVD will also contain over 9 hours of extras. Currently listed are two separate commentary tracks featuring cast and crew members. A Two-hour “Making Of” documentary will also be included as well as Roddy McDowall’s on-set footage. Rare outtakes and DVD–ROM content will also be included as well as many more things.
“Planet Of The Apes” is scheduled for release on February 3 and will carry a suggested retail price of $26.98!
