    These titles are being reissued to tie in with the new Apes theatrical release.

    I'm wondering what happened with the 2K restoration of the 68 film Fox was working on a few years ago. It seems a missed opportunity.

    In 2011, when Rise of the Planet of the Apes came out, the Film Forum ran what was billed as being a 35mm print of a brand new restoration -- so assuming it's the same thing, it at least has been out there in some form.

    Ronald,
    Are you sure the 1968 Apes film is just a reissue and not a newer transfer?
    Thanks!

    Bryan,

    Not sure.

    I was guessing a simple re-issue to coincide with the theatrical release.

    However, at the same time, if a new transfer has been struck what a better
    time to release it.

    I was at Best Buy today and they had the 5 film set repackaged in a standard blu package on sale for $20. New cover art too.
