Fox To Support The Release With A Multi-million Dollar Marketing Featuring A Robust $10 Million Television, Radio And Online Advertising Campaign As The Centerpiece

CENTURY CITY, Calif., (September 11, 2001) - The event film of 2001 evolves into the year's most spectacular home video and DVD release on November 20, when Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment (TCFHE) launches its $180 million (to date) futuristic action adventure epic, PLANET OF THE APES VHS (for rent) and Special Edition DVD (for sale). Director Tim Burton's visual feast, starring Mark Wahlberg, Helena Bonham Carter, Tim Roth, Michael Clarke Duncan and Estella Warren, marked the largest three-day non-holiday gross in history with an impressive $68.5 million in its opening weekend, and was hailed as "the summer blockbuster we've been waiting for" (San Francisco Chronicle) and "not just worthy of comparison to the original…it's better," (Richard Roeper, "Ebert & Roeper At The Movies"). Supported by an aggressive, multi-million dollar marketing campaign, the "must-see" PLANET OF THE APES is primed to be among the top rental and sell-through releases for holiday 2001. Eagerly awaited by the millions of original Planet Of The Apes science fiction fans, as well as the legion of newly introduced general consumers, the PLANET OF THE APES Special Edition DVD will be available for $29.98 ($46.98 Canada) and priced for rental on VHS. Pre-book for both DVD and VHS is October 24.

The highly evolved PLANET OF THE APES Special Edition DVD is loaded with added-value materials, enhancing the experience for viewers with 28 never-before-seen programs created specifically for the DVD during filming, a full-length feature commentary by Director Tim Burton, nine behind-the-scenes/multi-angle features, menus shot on-set by Philippe Rousselot, the film's Director of Photography, and much more

MARKETING
Adding to the already high retailer and consumer anticipation for the PLANET OF THE APES VHS and Special Edition DVD debut, Fox will launch a colossal multi-million marketing program touting a robust $10 million nationwide television, print radio and online advertising campaign as the centerpiece. The release will also be supported with trailering on upcoming TCFHE releases including the sell-through release, Dr. Dolittle 2. Several promotional marketing partners are in the final stages of negotiation and will be announced shortly.

PLANET OF THE APES SPECIAL EDITION DVD
In keeping with the film's sophisticated visual effects, the world-class PLANET OF THE APES Special Edition DVD is one of the most ambitious and technically-advanced DVDs ever produced, providing unprecedented interactivity for viewers.

SYNOPSIS
In the year 2029, interstellar reconnaissance missions are relegated to chimpanzee pilots from the Space Station Oberon in deep space. On such a mission, a chimp loses communication and vanishes from the radar. Fearless astronaut Leo Davidson launches a rescue mission and, following a malfunction, lands on a jungle-like planet not unlike the Earth. To Leo's astonishment, English-speaking apes and primitive humans inhabit the planet. Following his capture by the apes and subsequent escape, Leo assembles a small band of defiant humans and empathetic apes in an attempt to re-establish contact with Oberon, but his focus changes following an unexpected discovery. Armed with this new information, Leo leads a rebellion against an overpowering ape force that will result in freedom or complete annihilation.
