HBO will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo mission moon landing with a special encore presentation of the Emmy(R)-winning 1998 miniseries FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON.

On Monday, July 15, all 12 digitally remastered episodes will launch on HBO GO, HBO NOW and HBO On Demand.

On Saturday, July 20, the 50th anniversary of the Apollo mission moon landing, HBO2 will air a marathon of all 12 episodes, starting at 8:45 a.m. (ET/PT).

To celebrate the anniversary, the standard definition visual effects have been replaced with brand-new CG effects that are based on reference models from NASA. In addition, an HD BluRay edition, set for release July 16, will feature remixed audio in Dolby ATMOS, as well as an exclusive "Inside the Remastering" featurette, which delves into the decision-making process and work put into updating and replacing the previous CG effects.

Winner of the Primetime Emmy(R) for Outstanding Miniseries, FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON stars David Andrews, Adam Baldwin, David Clennon, Gary Cole, Matt Craven, Brett Cullen, Tim Daly, Cary Elwes, Sally Field, Dave Foley, Al Franken, Tony Goldwyn, Mark Harmon, Tom Hanks, Peter Horton, Chris Isaak, Tcheky Karyo, Daniel Hugh Kelly, Ted Levine, Ann Magnuson, DeLane Matthews, Jay Mohr, Elizabeth Perkins, Kevin Pollak, James Rebhorn, Stephen Root, Alan Ruck, Diana Scarwid, Peter Scolari, Nick Searcy, Grant Shaud, Lane Smith, Cynthia Stevenson, Jobeth Williams and Rita Wilson.
