Five individuals from five nations, including the "Superpowers" (USA, USSR and China), suddenly find themselves on an alien spacecraft. An alien gives each a container holding capsules. No power on Earth can open a given container except a mental command from the person to whom it is given.
Each person has been provided with the power of life and death. Any of these individuals has the capability to instantaneously launch the capsules to whatever coordinates he/she chooses, and each capsule will then eradicate all human life within a 3,000-mile radius of its designated location..

About Australian Daybill Movie Posters. The Australian daybill movie poster is the Australian equivalent to the American insert. The sizes vary, depending on the era, from 13" x 30" from the 40s to the mid-60s to 13" x 26" 13" x 27", 13" x 28"and even 11" x 27" from the 80s. Some of the more modern daybill, particularly after 2000 are produced in various sizes.The usual process for producing Australian daybill posters was the hand litho process, which produced posters with a rich texture and subtle toning. The artists would generally use US poster art or press book images for their inspiration and they would either trace or use their own imagination or a combination of both to come up with a design for the poster. This artistic licence led to some beautiful posters unique to Australia, which often featured superior artwork with rich deep colour.
Virtually all vintage daybills are now hard to obtain and as such, are becoming increasingly popular due to their convenient size and that a very low number of each produced. They are a very good investment in entertainment history. It is important to note that daybills for the original release of a film often included a two-colour (duotone) or black and white version. In many cases these are mistakenly referred to as copies or later reissues but they were generally released at the same time as the full colour versions were issued and as such, are also originals. Some posters like those produced by RKO Pictures and Brown Prior Anderson Pty.
Victoria bleed the printing process right to the edge of posters so there was no white border. Many of these posters appear to have been trimmed but are not. Certain printing firms seem to predominate during certain periods, such as W. Smith and Robert Burton of Sydney during the 1940s and 1950s.Several other printers like RKO Pictures, F. (litho) Sydney, Royelltone Prints Pty. Melbourne, W & B Litho, Sydney and Simmons Ltd. Printed older posters but W. Smith and Robert Burton produced most. S started producing movie posters and there is an overlap where both Robert Burton and M. S printed some of the same original posters and both are originals. Other printers like Brown Prior Anderson in Burwood, Victoria, Australia, also printed some of the B grade and R rated Australian posters, and some of the film distributors like Roadshow Australia produced and distributed their own posters.
