I love IMAX movies because they are always beautifully shot, intelligently narrated, and because the impressive screen and massive sound system combo is generally enough to make even the most meh topic appear amazingly inspired. Yeah, I said it – there have been IMAX movies that I watched on subjects only because they were IMAX movies. But based on the subject matter and the preview, the upcoming Hubble 3D movie is already in the running to be my all-time favorite IMAX movie.
Through the power of IMAX® 3D, Hubble 3D will enable movie-goers to journey through distant galaxies to explore the grandeur and mysteries of our celestial surroundings, and accompany space-walking astronauts as they attempt the most difficult and important tasks in NASA’s history. The film will offer an inspiring and unique look into the Hubble Space Telescope’s legacy and highlight its profound impact on the way we view the universe and ourselves. Hubble 3D is an IMAX and Warner Bros. Pictures production, in cooperation with National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The film reunites the Space Station 3D filmmaking team, led by Producer/Director Toni Myers. Hubble 3D will blast off exclusively to IMAX and IMAX 3D theatres on March 19th, 2010.
I doubt that in my lifetime space travel will be affordable for the masses or that I’ll be able to explore the cosmos, so this movie may be the closest I can get. I’m okay with that. Now Kev and I just need to figure out which IMAX theaters will be showing it in Texas this spring, so we can pick one and make the trip.
