I heard a while back this was coming out on DVD in the near future. Anyone hear any news on this? I'm hoping it will have 3D glasses with it!

For those of you in the San Diego area, we are showing the movie on our IMAX dome on November 26th as part of a Friday evening special.

Hi Tom,

I got the DVD Inside the Space Station from the KSC shop in May this year and asked about the 3D version. A few weeks ago got an e-mail from IMAX to say this 3D one will be out either late December or early 2005.

regards from Brenda.

I believe 'Inside the Space Station' was a Discovery Channel special, but it's not IMAX.

Thanks for the info. Inside the Space Station was one of those Discovery Channel shows. I have that DVD. I'm hoping the 3D Station DVD has some kind of 3D glasses with it, that will be really cool!

Tom, if you don't luck out with the 3-D glasses, email me and I can drop a pair of Mars Rovers ones in the mail. I bought ten pcs. a while back, so I have quite a few extras! -C

That won't work. The movie is not red-blue 3D; It is polarized 3D.

However, I do seem to recall IMAX saying it will come with the glasses now that I think about it.

The DVD is available for pre-order on Amazon.com, with a release date set for June 7.

However, neither the item information page nor the cover art make any mention of it being in 3D.

Amazon has changed the release date to July 19. Still no mention of a 3D version.

IMAX release
quote:
Prepare to launch 220 miles above Earth at 17,500 mph to experience a remarkable out-of-this-world adventure with the popular IMAX® film Space Station, the first-ever cinematic journey to the famed International Space Station (ISS).

As astoundingly beautiful as it is technically dazzling, this extraordinary film, narrated by Academy Award®-winner Tom Cruise, is the closest most people will ever come to real space exploration.

Blasting off onto DVD June 19, this one of a kind DVD is loaded with extras and priced to own at $19.98 SRP from Warner Home Video.

One of the most popular IMAX® films ever (over $57 Million U.S. Box Office), Space Station treats audiences like real astronauts from blast-off to life inside the ISS.

Made with the cooperation of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Space Station is the story of the unique partnership of 16 nations building a laboratory in outer space – a permanent facility for the study of the effects of long-duration exposure to zero gravity and the necessary first step towards the global co-operative effort needed if man is to someday set foot on Mars.

The film is highlighted by the challenges, setbacks and triumphs of this groundbreaking engineering feat… and ultimately, the shared international victory of men and women whose dreams exceed the limits of life on Earth.

Space Station follows two separate space shuttles that leave from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center and Russia’s Baikonur Cosmodrome to rendezvous with their new home in orbit 220 miles above Earth.

Now people of every age and language can work side by side with their space-walking crewmates, building and inhabiting this unprecedented structure in space.

"After a very impressive run at IMAX® theaters around the country, we are excited to release the ultimate space movie experience, Space Station, for fans to enjoy at home,” said Christine Martinez, WHV Vice President, Non-theatrical Franchise Marketing.

“This DVD gives audiences an experience like none other by offering incredible extra features that take the viewer to the next level. Bonus features include an exclusive guided tour through the ISS from the astronauts who lived and worked there, interviews with the astronauts explaining how this movie was made in space, never-before-seen photos, and more. Space Station is the perfect film for anyone who wants a first hand look at what it is like to travel into space.”

The Space Station DVD extra content includes:

  • Featurette: Adventures in Space – The Process of Moviemaking
  • Director/Astronaut Commentary
  • Two Audio Visual Astronaut Guided Tours Of The ISS
  • Photo Gallery (including never-before-seen photos)

Region 1 NTSC only I suppose? (No problem for my up-to-date TV & DVD equipment but might be a problem for other Europeans on this board.)

So please post DVD tech details when talking about DVDs.

I got this in an email from Amazon...

Now through August 31, order the critically acclaimed new IMAX documentary "Space Station," narrated by Tom Cruise, and a one-year subscription to "Popular Science" magazine is included with your purchase. Add both to your Shopping Cart and enter code WBTWPSCNCE75 at checkout. See site for details.

I had planned on buying it locally today so I'd get in my grubby little paws sooner, but the Popular Science offer was tempting, and the fact that you get free shipping doing that made it irresistable.

Any release in PAL format planned?

I know earlier IMAX releases were available in both formats, and even on sale as such in the KSC Visitor's Centre.

Mine showed up yesterday. I didn't watch it all the way through, but just skipped around a bit. The rocket launches with the subwoofer going are great!

Even better when I had my universal remote programmed wrong and any volume adjustment that I made only made it louder. Oops.
