In April 1968, two classic sci-fi movies hit theaters: Planet of the Apes and 2001: A Space Odyssey. First on April 3, Planet of the Apes premiered to critical acclaim. Next came Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey on April 6, which was met with a polarized reception. After gaining a cult following, though, it became 1968's highest-grossing film.
