There have been a total of 5 original planet of the apes movies I think not including the 2001 new movie. I have an interest in buying the first movie, and the one with the telepathic humans with the atomic bomb, but did not know until recently there had been other films. Are the other films in the saga good? And if so, is there a box set for purchasing the original five movies on DVD?

    Planet of the Apes is an American science fiction film. It was released in the year 1968 and the film was directed by Franklin J.Schaffner and it was based on the novel La planete des singe. It was published in the year 1963. The film stars included Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter, Maurice Evans, James Whitmore, James Daly and Linda Harrison. It was released by 20th century. The film is about the story of an astronaut crew who crash landed on a strange planet in different surface. In the beginning planet appears desolate and the surviving crew members stumble with the society of apes. The apes then adopted the role of dominant species and the humans were so called mute animals who used to wear animal skins.
    Excluding the 2001 remake of the Planet of the Apes, there has been The Planet of the Apes (1968), Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970), Escape From the Planet of the Apes (1971), Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972), and Return To the Planet of the Apes (1975.) So yes, there have been five theatrically released Planet of the Apes films, excluding the recent remake. However, there have been several made for tv versions. I myself have never been a fan of the planet of the apes films and have only seen about three of the five, as I do not care for them at all. If you enjoyed the original one a lot then I suggest investing in the rest of them as well. Yes there is a box set that is available for purchase. The Planet of the Apes Legacy Boxset includes all five films and can be bought at
