Put Your Paws ON Me! Win a ‘Planet of the Apes’ Prize Pack!

It’s time to go ape wild! In anticipation of the impending theatrical release of ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’, High-Def Digest is giving away a pretty fabulous ‘Planet of the Apes’ prize pack this week. Enter now for your chance to win.

One of our lucky readers will receive all of the following:

  • ‘Planet of the Apes Legacy Collection’ on Blu-ray, containing all five of the original ‘Apes’ movies: ‘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 ‘Battle for the Planet of the Apes’ (1973). Also includes Movie Money to see ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ in the theater!
  • ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ Target-exclusive MetalPak Blu-ray.
  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Firestorm‘ – Prequel novel that bridges the gap between the events of ‘Rise’ and ‘Dawn’.
  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes & Rise of the Planet of the Apes: The Art of the Films‘ – Companion book featuring concept art, behind-the-scenes photography and film stills for both movies, plus a foreward by ‘Dawn’ director Matt Reeves.



Really, this is pretty much everything an ‘Apes’ fan could need in order to get up to speed on the franchise – except perhaps the cheesy 1970s spin-off TV series and Tim Burton’s 2001 reboot, both of which are honestly best forgotten.

How can you win this sweet bounty of monkey goodness? All you have to do is participate in our photo caption contest by giving us a funny or clever caption for the following image. Click to enlarge:

For example: “…and then Mark Wahlberg returns to Earth, but all the people there are apes. I know! What a stupid plot twist!”

We have one copy of the prize pack to give away. The winner will be chosen at our own subjective discretion based on whichever responses we enjoy the most. Entries are limited to 10 per person. That should give you plenty of opportunity to craft a good submission, but will also help us to avoid any potential appearance of awarding prizes based on volume rather than quality. (Please heed this limit. You will be taken out of consideration if you submit more than 10 entries.) All entries must be submitted in the Comments section of this blog post. Please do not attempt to email them to me.

This contest is only open to entrants from the domestic United States. We will not ship internationally (whether you’re a U.S. citizen or not). Employees of High-Def Digest or Internet Brands and their families are not eligible. Standard contest rules and conditions apply. People who have won any of our previous contests within the past one year are also not eligible to win, but may get Honorable Mentions.

The deadline for entry is Friday, July 4th. The winners will be announced the following week. Good luck!

    “WOOOOOOO! You guys are the BEST!”

    “You’re drunk, we’re getting you to bed.”

    “Put me in the banana hammock!”

    “It’s just a hammock.”

    “You guys are no fun since you joined AAA.”

    1. So I had this dream guys, I was at the zoo and some baboon ape hole bumps into me, sending me over the railing into the 1 to 2 year old human pen. Where I was attacked, hair pulled, binky shoved in my mouth and pink bonnet put on my head, they were about to curl my hair when I woke up. Crazy huh.

    2. Three apes head into the newly opened Liberty bar, bar tender said “we don’t serve you, you damned dirty apes.” Apes respond “but we’re celebrating our new memberships in the NRA.” Well then, said the bar tender, three Heston’s on the rocks for you.”

    Ape #1: [as the Spaceballs and what is left of Mega Maid land on the Planet of the Apes] Dear me. What are these things coming out of her nose?

    Dark Helmet: [One of the apes takes his binoculars out and sees Colonel Sandurz, Dark Helmet, and President Skroob coming out of Mega Maid’s nose] Hey, hey, hey. Watch my Helmet.

    Ape #2: Spaceballs.

    Ape #1: Oh, Crap. There goes the planet.

    Sorry, this seems a little sloppy compared to my American Horror Story poem. Wrote it out a little fast, but figured I’d share anyways. Don’t think I’m able to win this one, but was in a “cinepoetic” mood. Was going for a “Five Little Monkeys” vibe, but kind of drifted.

    Three monkeys in a lab, by a doctor fed,
    Experimental drugs that affect their head.
    One goes crazy, sees blood red,
    Euthanasia follows, Bright Eyes is dead.

    One little monkey, from his mother bred,
    Saved by a scientist, taken home instead.
    Suffering inhuman hate, in the years ahead,
    Leads the Rise of the Apes, destruction wide-spread.

    Caesar, the ape-babe now grown into power,
    Living peacefully among the Redwood, life begins to flower.
    Until the humans, returning with guns and gunpowder,
    Seek revenge, for their mistakes, peace beginning to sour.

    The apes will prevail, but loss will ensue.
    Brothers fall, tears shed, barely able to pull through.
    Surviving men and women lie in cages, civilization askew.
    It is the Planet of Apes, damn dirty ones too.

    “The human saw me eating my own poop, and so I turn and said to him, ‘The Aristocrats!’ You shoulda seen his face!”

  8. Joe J.

    1. “You there! Stop us-ing about and get back to work!”
    2. “So then he says ‘get your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty apes,’ and I’m all like have you smelled yourself lately, bro?”
    3. In Soviet Russia, apes evolve from you!
