12:20 AM/EST Escape from the Planet of the Apes (III)
1:20 AM/EST *Conquest of the Planet of the Apes *(IV)
3:05 AM/EST Battle for the Planet of the Apes (V)
And then it all starts over again with the repeats, but the red-eye showing of Battle will be the only time it’s aired this marathon.
We start out with the space-travellin astronaut guy goin’ through space and crash landing on an alien planet, and from there we find out it’s ruled by DAMN DIRTY APES! Our hero befriends two scientists and forces them to recognize their past as our hero discovers his future:
YOU MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT UP! DAMN YOU! GOD DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!!
Then, we discover mutant humans living in Grand Central Station -no surprise there :rimshot:- with telepathic powers, worshipping the atomic warhead that destroyed their world. They fear the apes’ latest military movements and so Charleton Heston is caught in the middle and imprisoned by the humans. Look for the climactic battle deep within the bowels of the planet.
Cornelius and Zira flee the planet of the Apes and travel back in time to modern day Los Angeles. In discovering the persecution similar to what Charleton Heston faced in their world, they find the origins of the ‘stream of events that will shape their world.’
In the near future, dogs and cats have been wiped out by plague and apes have been domesticated and turned into work slaves. Then comes Caesar, son of Cornelius and Zira, a super intelligent ape from the future leads a spectacular revolt of the monkey butlers against their human masters.
Set in the year 2670, after conquering the humans, Caesar leads the superior race of apes who live above ground and attempts to keep the peace between apes and humans who live beneath the earth. General Aldo has a different perspective and tries to cause a civil war between the apes. Meanwhile, other humans learn of the ape city and decide to take back civilization for mankind.
The Apes of Wrath!!!
