Release Date: Friday, May 26, 1950
A rocketship is launched on the first mission to the moon. A meteor storm, however, changes the trajectory and sends them off toward Mars instead. This was technically the first 1950s "Rocketship" movie, as it was rushed into production once the studio found out about "Destination Moon". Rocketship X-M was black and white with far fewer special effects and so was able to reach theaters first, despite being influenced by the other.
