In 1968 movie audiences were stunned and riveted by Planet of the Apes, an allegorical sci-fi film based on a book by French novelist Pierre Boulle. It quickly garnered four sequels, a TV show, a comic series, and even a cartoon. Now this franchise has new relevance as prequel, reboot movies draw in new fans.
