NOW ON HULU: A TRIP TO THE MOON & THE EXTRAORDINARY VOYAGE 

George Méliès’ A TRIP TO THE MOON is now streaming on Hulu in both black & white and its original 1902 colors.
One of the most technically-sophisticated and expensive restorations in film history, the fully-restored color version features an original soundtrack by the French band AIR (http://www.hulu.com/watch/573314). Meanwhile, the black and white version of A TRIP TO THE MOON with music and voice characterizations recreates the creative way that enterprising American nickelodeon operators presented Méliès’ film when it came to the United States in 1903 (http://www.hulu.com/watch/573312). Restored by Lobster Films, Groupama Gan Foundation for Cinema and Technicolor Foundation for Cinema Heritage.
Hulu users can also explore the film’s history with THE EXTRAORDINARY VOYAGE, a fascinating documentary that chronicles the journey of A Trip to the Moon from the Méliès’ production in 1902 to the astonishing rediscovery of a nitrate print in color in 1993, to the premiere of the restoration on the opening night of the Cannes Film Festival in 2011 (http://www.hulu.com/watch/573309). Presented by Lobster Films. Directed by Serge Bromberg and Eric Lange.
