Hope its on the DVD!
5 September 2001 | by littlelittlestevenSee all my reviews

One of three great documentaries on the making of Tim Burton's "PLANET OF THE APES". All three were shown in the weeks preceding the theatrical release of the feature. Lots of behind the scenes footage,make-up tests and cast & crew interviews. I sure hope all three featurettes are included on the film's DVD release!
