Ray Harryhausen's Special Effects Classic ========================== 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH ========================== Arrives June 25 on DVD __________________________________________________ ___________________ Culver City, Calif. (May 8, 2002) - A horrible alien from Venus is on the loose and threatening the city of Rome in the science-fiction classic 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH -- featuring eye-popping special effects by Ray Harryhausen -- which comes to DVD for the first time on June 25 from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment. It's the first teaming of Harryhausen and director Nathan Juran, who would go on to make "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad." 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH also marks the first (and only) appearance of the terrifying monster that has come to be known as The Ymir - an outer-space alien that invades Earth when an American rocketship carrying it as a specimen crash lands. From its perch atop the Coliseum, the Ymir launches a ferocious assault upon the Eternal City. Considered "one of the best monster-on-the-loose movies ever" (Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide), 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH is highlighted by Harryhausen's remarkable effects. They bring the Ymir to life in a dazzling fashion, providing a worthy successor to such Harryhausen favorites as "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms" and "It Came from Beneath the Sea." 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH: Starring William Hopper, Joan Taylor, Thomas Browne Henry, Frank Puglia.
