Planet of the Apes (2001)Edit

In the 2001 remake of Planet of the Apes, the Goncz GA was issued in a Survival Pack within each Pod onboard the Oberon. In fact the weapon was seen three times through out the whole movie. Despite the photo above, the pistol actually has a lower body that is mocked up to be space aged.

  • The first time the weapon was seen was after Leo Davidson salvaged his survival pack from the wreckage of Delta Pod. Davidson was seen using it to intimidate Limbo, however Krull took it from his hand and smashed it on a rock.
  • The second time the weapon was seen was when Thade visited his dying father Zaius. After explaining that Humans were once the masters and apes were the slaves, Zaius tells his son to break a nearby urn, revealing the pistol inside.
  • The final time the pistol in is seen is after the chimpanzee known as Pericles lands in Alpha Pod. Davidson grabs for it and then in an intense fight within the wreckage of the Oberon, Thade gets his hands on it. He aims the gun at Davidson, however Davidson lowers the glass door and Thade keeps shooting at the glass door. Thade continues to shoot, however the bullets keep bouncing off the walls and glass of the bridge.
