The latest IMAX documentary special takes a look at our unique little marble in the cosmos, and they’ve booked an A-lister to help tell the story.
The first trailer for A Beautiful Planet has been released, showing off some stunning footage of Earth taken from the International Space Station, with narration by Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games, X-Men: Days of Future Past). The film comes from the same IMAX team that created acclaimed projects such as Blue Planet, Hubble 3D and Space Station 3D. The goal is to offer an “awe-inspiring glimpse” of Earth and a hopeful look into the future of humanity itself. If nothing else, this thing looks positively breathtaking.
Here’s the official synopsis:
A Beautiful Planet aims to offer a breathtaking portrait of Earth from space, providing a unique perspective and increased understanding of our planet and galaxy as never seen before. Made in cooperation with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the film features stunning footage of our magnificent blue planet — and the effects humanity has had on it over time — captured by the astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS). From space, Earth blazes at night with the electric intensity of human expansion — a direct visualization of our changing world. But it is within our power to protect the planet. As we continue to explore and gain knowledge of our galaxy, we also develop a deeper connection to the place we all call home.
A Beautiful Planet will be an IMAX exclusive, debuting April 29.
