Re: Best Planet Of The Apes sequel?
Escape implied that those events were a considerable distance in the future -- naturally, since it would've taken time to breed the apes into the more humanoid form we see.
I read once that there was a subplot (or maybe just one scene, like a character reading a book or something) which was cut from the original film, and which would have placed the 'ape holocaust' at several centuries into our future, like the 26th or 27th centuries. Most people assume that it happened in the present, but there's no real proof of that.
