ABOUT THE FILM:

When the United States and the Soviet Union simultaneously set off nuclear explosions, London’s Daily Express begins to report on bizarre weather changes around the world. But when the reporters dig deeper, they discover that the blasts have knocked Earth off its axis and sent it hurtling towards the sun. Now, as scorching heat and devastating floods plague the planet, cities explode in chaos and mankind is left with one last hope: A final massive detonation that will either re-balance Earth’s orbit or destroy the world forever! Produced, directed and co-written by Val Guest, this British classic is legendary for its brilliant dialogue, chilling realism and one of the most provocative endings in sci-fi history. Beautifully shot in stunning black-and-white Cinemascope by Harry Waxman and starring Janet Munro, Leo McKern and Edward Judd.
