Some people think that Jennifer Lawrence is the most beautiful vision that Earth has to offer. But only her voice will guide us through a documentary that shows us the beauty of our planet from the International Space Station, which might give her a run for her money (and she has a lot of it after The Hunger Games).
A Beautiful Planet is a new IMAX documentary that gives us some unique insight into our planet at the environment from the perspective of astronauts orbiting in space around it. Stunning shots of our planet from space give us gorgeous vantage points that we’ve never seen before, making this something that will be magical to see on the IMAX screen.
Watch the A Beautiful Planet trailer below.
Tony Myers, the director of Hubble 3D, aims to make us feel like astronauts, for all of us who weren’t that good at math, or may have just been too chubby for space camp. Personally, I’m wondering when we’re going to start getting VR projects like this to really give us the feeling of being in space, except without the weightlessness.
A Beautiful Planet will screen exclusively in IMAX and IMAX 3D, and just from this trailer, it seems like the kind of movie that will be worth the surcharge for the latter experience. Plus, you get to listen to Jennifer Lawrence, so it’s a win-win.
A Beautiful Planet is 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. Narrated by Jennifer Lawrence and from IMAX Entertainment and Toni Myers — the acclaimed filmmaker behind celebrated IMAX® documentaries Blue Planet, Hubble 3D, and Space Station 3D — A Beautiful Planet presents an awe-inspiring glimpse of Earth and a hopeful look into the future of humanity.
A Beautiful Planet hits IMAX and IMAX 3D screens exclusively on April 29.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
