Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment continues to produce quality restorations of Ray Harryhausen classics. The newest addition to the line-up will be the sci-fi classic 20 Million Miles to Earth.
On its way home from Venus, a U.S. Army rocket ship crashes into the sea of Sicily leaving Colonel Calder (William Hopper) the sole survivor – or so it seems. A sealed container is also recovered from the wreck, and when a zoologist (Frank Puglia) and his granddaughter (Joan Taylor) open it, the gelatinous mass inside escapes. Overnight, it grows into a horrific monster that has doubled in size. In desperation, Calder calls 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.
The film will be available in both anamorphic widescreen and pan and scan and will feature the film’s original mono soundtrack. Other features include a trailer, the featurette The Harryhausen Chronicles and the “This is Dynamation” featurette.
Coming on June 25th, the out of this world action will come to DVD for $24.95, but you can preorder your copy for only $16.22 now at the DVD Review Store.
