Mad About Mars Mars at Opposition Red Planet Mars Science Fiction

The discovery of extra-terrestrial life on Mars triggers a series of events which forever change life on Earth in this classic 1952 science fiction film.

American scientists Chris and Linda Cronyn, utilise a recent technological invention which allows them to make contact for the first time with the Martian beings. Follow the adventure as chaos unravels and the world starts to face shattering political, economic, and spiritual repercussions.
