In 1968, 20th Century Fox introduced audiences to the big-screen adaptation of Pierre Boulle’s PLANET OF THE APES, an instant blockbuster that spawned more than four decades of sequels, a live-action and animated TV series, and a big-budget reimagining by director Tim Burton, ultimately leading up to Fox’s epic resurrection with 2011’s RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES and this summer’s DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, opening in theaters this July 11.
This June, Creature Features and Blacksparrow Auctions salute the evolution of this durable franchise with a month-long celebration of Ape-centric events, including a group art show tribute with a host of renowned artists paying homage to the APES universe, comic book signings and celebrity appearances, all leading up to a live auction of rare APES treasures, including original props, costumes, memorabilia and more.
Consignments for the auction are being accepted now. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. Submissions for the art gallery can be made by contacting email@example.com. Deadline for submissions is June 14th.
