From the mind of science-fiction giant Ray Bradbury springs what is perhaps his most epic vision. Capturing mankind's first venture into the colonization of another planet ? and its tragic first contact with another species ? "The Martian Chronicles" is a stunning achievement that will take you from the edge of your seat...to the stars. Earth is on the verge of extinction. To survive, mankind must find another place to live. But when three expeditions to Mars, headed by Col. John Wilder (Oscar-nominee Rock Hudson), find suitable conditions for relocation, humans pour in by the shipload bringing the old evils of Earth with them! As Wilder begins to heed the lessons of the dying Martian civilization, can he save humanity from repeating its doom.
