Planet Of The Apes | 2001

Planet of the Apes location: Trona Pinnacles, near Ridgecrest, California
Planet of the Apes location: ‘Calima’ – birthplace of ape civilisation: Trona Pinnacles, near Ridgecrest, California

For Tim Burton's slightly disappointing 2001 're-imagining', of the 1968 classic, ‘Calima’, where the ape civilisation is born – and where Leo Davidson (Mark Wahlberg) discovers the ruins of his spaceship – is the spectacular Trona Pinnacles near Ridgecrest, central California. You may recognise the striking rock formation as the planet ‘Shakari’, where Captain Kirk meets ‘God’ in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.
