The 3D experience that moviegoers have embraced worldwide with James Cameron's Avatar has truly been extraordinary. However, even Pandora can't compare with the utter splendor and beauty we can see above our own Earth with the new IMAX 3D film Hubble 3D, which will be released in IMAX theaters across the country on March 19. This stunning new film gives viewers an up-close and personal look at the recent 2009 NASA mission to repair the Hubble telescope and, with the amazing IMAX 3D technology (and on a REAL IMAX screen), you're closer to the action than ever before and you're even treated to insightful narration from Leonardo DiCaprio, which enhances the beauty on screen with loads of intriguing facts.
I recently was able to speak with both the director of the film, Toni Myers, and one of the astronauts on this Hubble mission, Michael Massimino. Here's what they both had to say about their brand new film.
Through the power of IMAX 3D, Hubble 3D will enable moviegoers 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 seventh film from the award-winning IMAX Space Team, Hubble 3D 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.
Toni Myers' film Hubble 3D was narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio and features astronauts Scott D. Altman, Andrew J. Feustel, Michael T. Good, John M. Grunsfeld, Gregory C. Johnson, Michael J. Massimino, K. Megan McArthur and will be released in IMAX theaters across the country on March 19.
