Beneath the Planet of the Smug Apes

A new cartoon poster based on the 1970 American sci-fi movie Beneath the Planet of the the Apes, the sequel to Planet of the Apes. The film was directed by Ted Post and starred Charlton Heston, Kim Hunter and James Franciscus. Beneath the Planet of the Apes tells the story of Brent, an earthling sent to find the missing astronauts from the first film. Brent discovers the same futuristic earth ruled by talking apes as well as discovering a cult of mutated humans who live below the earth and worship an atomic bomb.

This is a follow up poster to my Planet of the Smug Apes, a poster that dealt with the smug and superior attitude of the apes who now rule the planet. An image of the original poster is shown below-
