Release Uncut Verion of BATTLE FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES on DVD. sign now

We, the undersigned, respectfully ask those responsible at FOX Home Entertainment to release the uncut version of BATTLE FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES when the original POTA sequels are re-issued on DVD in 2006.

Specifically, we are requesting the cut of the film that restores these scenes to the current version available on DVD:

Time Point/Description

0'08'03/the score continues to its original ending for 25 seconds with extra footage of General Aldo approaching on a horse.

0'13'37/the chase of the teacher of the apes is longer by 20 seconds

0'26'57/Kolp is walking around in his HQ and has more dialogue (30sec)

0'29'38/the entry into the forbidden city of the ape scout party with Caesar is 40 sec longer with more dialogue

0'34'32/the escape from the forbidden city shows more footage and dialogue of the apes

0'42'06/the scene were Cornelius is "shot" by a human boy is beginning earlier, making it clear that the shooting is a game - which makes more sense since no mutant party had yet approached the ape city (15 sec)

0'46'47/DELETED SCENE - in this edited scene, Kolp tells his Alma, to fire an Alpha-Omega missile on ape city when he give the signal. This adds to the tension and it is odd that this element was left out. (1'16sec)

0'56'43/the assault by the mutants is shown 45sec longer (in this sequence there are three more "smaller cuts" that reduce the battle scene by 40 additional sec) AND THERE IS NO MUSICAL SCORE

1'02'18/the scene where the Kolp calls "Sergeant York" is missing (1 min)

1'07'57/again, parts of the assault are cut by almost 40sec

1'08'50/there are additional shots and dialogue before the mutants lay the smoke screen

1'09'29/again, 15sec of the battle were cut

1'10'00/more battle footage cut (20sec)

1'16'00/the scene were Aldo kills the Kolp and his followers in the school bus was cut in the U.S. version

1'22'10/the fight between Aldo and Caesar is longer

1'24'00/DELETED SCENE - the scene where Mendez talks the Alma out of firing the Alpha-Omega bomb was cut (only with this sequence reinserted the odd cut from the Caesar conversation with the humans to the ending sequence makes a little more sense and looks better)

The uncut version of BATTLE has been previously released on Japanese Lasardisc and in TV Syndication during the late '70s & early '80s. It is about time that it be released on DVD to the North American and International markets.
