Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • One of the considered endings had Leo Davidson crash-landing at Yankee Stadium and seeing apes playing baseball. This scene was originally suggested in 1995 by Fox executive Dylan Sellers when Phillip Noyce and Terry Hayes were attached. When Hayes submitted a script without the baseball scene, Sellers fired him and Noyce quit. Tim Burton wanted the scene but it was cut due to budgetary concerns.
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): During the final battle, studio lights are reflected on Thade's helmet.
  • CAMEO (Rick Baker): When the humans are transported into the Ape City in the cage, three apes are sitting smoking a Water Pipe. The Ape in the middle with gray hair and beard taking a puff, is Makeup Designer Rick Baker, who designed all the Ape makeup for the movie.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): SPOILER: When Leo is about to trap Thade inside the wreck of the Oberon, the touch screen that activates the shield is shown twice. It is clearly encrusted with a thousand years of dust. But as Leo actually puts his hand over the screen it is suddenly as clean as the day it was made.
