FIRST MEN IN THE MOON - Based on legendary science fiction novelist H.G. Wells (War of the Worlds, The Time Machine) 1901 story, The First Men in the Moon is brought to life in eye-catching DYNAMATION by director Nathan Juran (The 7th Voyage of Sinbad) and celebrated filmmaker Ra...y Harryhausen (Jason and the Argonauts). Brilliant and brave British scientist Joseph Cavor (Lionel Jeffries, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) revolutionises a gravity deflecting device and builds his own spacecraft with the sole intention of taking a trip to the moon. Accompanied by loyal explorers Arnold Bedford (Edward Judd, Island of Terror) and Kate Callender (Martha Hyer, The Night of the Grizzly), they encounter all manner of intergalactic peril along the way and even discover an insect-like alien race living under the moon's surface.? MILLION MILES TO EARTH - Special effects master Ray Harryhausen (Clash of the Titans, One Million Years B.C.) brings you one of his earliest groundbreaking films. On its way home from Venus, a U.S. Army rocket ship crashes into the sea of Sicily leaving Colonel Calder (William Hopper, Rebel Without a Cause) the sole survivor ...or so it seems. A sealed container is also recovered from the wreck and when a zoologist (Frank Puglia, Girls! Girls! Girls!) and his granddaughter (Joan Taylor, War Drums) open it, the gelatinous mass inside escapes. Overnight, it grows into a horrific monster that has doubled in size. In desperation, Calder calls in the Army to help fight the monster, which has taken refuge atop the Coliseum in Rome. But it will take more than man's weapons to fight the evil forces of the unknown and save the world from destruction.
