Pictured here is Charlton Heston and Linda Harrison in the 1968 film, Planet of the Apes. The basic storyline is about a world in which humans and intelligent apes clash for control. The massive science fiction franchise now consists of various films, books, television series, and comics among other media.

It all started with French author Pierre Boulle's 1963 novel La Planète des Singes, (loosely translated as Monkey Planet). Next came the 1968 film adaptation, titled Planet of the Apes, and the rest is history. That initial film was a critical and commercial hit, and four sequels followed between 1970 and 1973: Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Escape from the Planet of the Apes, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, and Battle for the Planet of the Apes. It also spawned two television series in 1974 and 1975.
