IMAX release
Hubble 3D to Reveal Unprecedented Views of the Universe in IMAX Theatres Starting March 19, 2010

Audiences to Accompany Spacewalking Astronauts as They Perform the Final Upgrade to the Hubble Space Telescope

IMAX Corporation and Warner Bros. Pictures announced Sept. 8 that Hubble 3D will be released exclusively in IMAX and IMAX 3D theatres worldwide beginning March 19, 2010, with expansion to additional IMAX locations on April 23rd, timed to the Hubble Space Telescope's 20th Anniversary.

The IMAX 3D camera, which flew onboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis, captured stunning 3D images of the intricate spacewalks required to service the telescope during the most recent mission last May. Shot by the STS-125 astronauts, this intimate look at the complexities of repairing the telescope will put IMAX audiences right there along-side the spacewalking astronauts. Hubble 3D will combine this awe-inspiring IMAX footage with breathtaking up-close imagery of distant galaxies, the birth of stars and planets, and more -- revealing the cosmos as never before.

"We have waited a long time to get the IMAX camera back into space and finally the opportunity came with the amazing final repair mission of the Hubble Space Telescope," said Toni Myers, director, producer and editor of the film. "In Hubble 3D, audiences will be able to float in space alongside the astronauts as they perform the repairs and upgrades to the telescope, and then fly to the edge of the universe, through its first new images. Hubble's incredible legacy changes the way we see and think about the universe, and it is an honor to give people a chance to experience its breath-taking images in IMAX 3D."

On Wednesday, September 9th, NASA unveiled the first images from the newly re-furbished Hubble Space Telescope.

Launched in 1990 and greatly extended in its scientific powers through new instrumentation, the Hubble Space Telescope has validated Lyman Spitzer Jr.'s original concept of large, space-based observatory orbiting far above the distorting effects of the Earth's atmosphere. In Hubble 3D audiences will come to understand the profound significance of the greatest scientific instrument since Galileo's original telescope and how it has forever changed both our view of the universe and of 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. James Neihouse, director of photography, also doubles as the astronaut crew trainer. Judy Carroll is associate producer, and Graeme Ferguson, co-founder of IMAX and pioneer producer of many IMAX space films, is executive producer.

Can't say I agree with the trailer's hyperbole of calling the STS-125 mission "the most ambitious undertaking in NASA's history", or Hubble "the greatest scientific instrument since Galileo's original telescope", but hype aside, this looks to be the best IMAX presentation since "Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon in 3-D".

We saw the trailer before Avatar in IMAX 3D. It was amazing! The scenes outside the shuttle made you feel like you were right there alongside the astronauts. Too bad that they were short, but I know the limitations of the IMAX cameras. There's also some not so great looking 3D computer animation, but perhaps it wasn't finished? I can't wait to get in line.

IMAX release
Leonardo DiCaprio to Narrate IMAX 3D Space Film Hubble 3D

Warner Bros. Pictures Inc. and IMAX Corporation today announced that three-time Academy-Award nominee Leonardo DiCaprio will narrate Hubble 3D. The latest IMAX 3D film from the award-winning team behind Space Station 3D and other successful IMAX space films, led by producer/director Toni Myers, is scheduled for release to IMAX theatres beginning March 19, 2010. Hubble 3D will combine awe-inspiring IMAX 3D footage shot in space with breathtaking, never-before-seen 3D flights through Hubble imagery from the Orion Nebula to the far reaches of the cosmos. The film is the fourth IMAX 3D co-production between the two companies.

"I'm thrilled that Leonardo will be guiding our audiences on this incredible journey through the cosmos," said producer/director Toni Myers. "It's a tremendous honor to have him as part of the Hubble 3D team. His extraordinary gift of connecting with audiences is the perfect fit for the immersive experience of Hubble's story."

"Leonardo's exceptional talent as both an actor and communicator will dovetail nicely with this breathtaking film, and we're looking forward to having him guide us to the edge of the universe and back," said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond.

Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution for Warner Bros. Pictures, said, "Leonardo has earned recognition around the world not only for his achievements in film, but for being one of the preeminent voices of his generation on subjects of genuine scope that touch our lives. He is an ideal addition to the team and will introduce IMAX audiences to the real-life wonder and drama of Hubble 3D."

"We are so excited that Leonardo has agreed to narrate this important movie and we would like to officially welcome him to the IMAX family," added Greg Foster, Chairman and President, IMAX Filmed Entertainment. "His unique ability to reach movie-goers of all ages in just the right way is ideal for this film, which takes us on a series of exhilarating space walks in IMAX 3D to revitalize the Hubble Space Telescope and then flies us through Hubble's new breathtaking images of distant galaxies."

Leonardo DiCaprio most recently earned a Golden Globe Award nomination for his leading role in Sam Mendes' acclaimed drama "Revolutionary Road." His numerous honors include three Oscar nominations, the first in 1994 for his work in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape," followed by "The Aviator," in 2005, for which he won the Golden Globe, and "Blood Diamond," in 2007. DiCaprio's additional credits include the Oscar-winning films "Titanic" and "The Departed." He will soon star in Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" and in Christopher Nolan's "Inception," both set for a 2010 release.

Following its March 19 debut, Hubble 3D will open in additional IMAX locations on April 23rd, timed to the Hubble Space Telescope's 20th Anniversary.

Through the power of IMAX 3D, the film 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.

The IMAX 3D camera flew onboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis last May and captured stunning 3D images of the intricate spacewalks required to service the telescope. The footage, shot by the STS-125 astronauts, will be included in the film and will put IMAX audiences right there alongside the spacewalking astronauts. The film will also feature never-before-seen 3D flights through awe-inspiring Hubble imagery, providing a first-person journey to the far reaches of our universe.

It has always puzzled me why these amazing IMAX films are never released in 3D on DVD. Why not a two-disc version with one disc conventional and the other the 3D version. They could sell the glasses alongside the DVD. They must be missing an opportunity here.

IMAX has updated its Hubble 3D website with new information about the film, including a very cool 3D animation of the space telescope itself (look carefully and you can even see a cameo by the space shuttle orbiter).

The film's red-carpet world premiere is on Monday, March 8 at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC, followed by the first public screening on March 14 at the South by Southwest Conference in Austin, Texas.

Hubble 3D will then open to the public on March 19, with an even wider distribution coming in April to coincide with the telescope's launch anniversary.

Air and Space Museum rolls out red carpet for Hubble 3D premiere

The star of the Warner Brothers' new IMAX film "Hubble 3D" was missed Tuesday evening at the movie's world premiere at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum but for good reason: it was orbiting 350 miles above Earth.

The Hubble Space Telescope's absence notwithstanding, the celebration saw the film's co-starring astronauts walk the red carpet to see for the first time the telescope's "life story" unfold on the museum's five-story screen...

I called the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk CT and the film opens there this week but it is not in 3D unfortunately. That was also the case with "Space Station." I am eager to see it but will have to travel out of state to see the 3D version I guess.

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, which previously was left off the list of theaters opening with "Hubble 3D" announced today it will begin screening the film on Friday, March 19.
There is no better place to watch the inspiring story of the Hubble Space Telescope than from Kennedy Space Center - the place where space shuttle Discovery, STS-31, launched in 1990 and deployed the greatest telescope ever built into Earth orbit...

Guests can also experience powerful Hubble imagery first-hand at the Eye on the Universe: The Hubble Space Telescope exhibit, located right outside the IMAX Theater at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. The exhibit celebrates the stunning discoveries of the Hubble Space Telescope, allowing guests to step into the universe and walk the pathway to ancient stars, nebulae and galaxies. The new Hubble 3D IMAX film and the Eye on the Universe: The Hubble Space Telescope exhibit are included with admission to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.

The only other space themed IMAX film I've seen is the Space Station one, how would you say it compared with that?

Cosmic Log: Hubble hits new heights
[Hubble 3D] ranked No. 20 on the box-office list last weekend, grossing about $411,000 in just 39 theaters. We're not just talking here about No. 20 for movies that usually play at science centers and museums. We're talking about the big-time list: "Hubble 3D" nearly beat out "The Hurt Locker," which won the best-picture Oscar earlier this month. It made more money per screen than that other 3-D movie, the top-grossing "Alice in Wonderland."

Finally got round to seeing this today, very enjoyable and some amazing images, the hour really flew past. It's been a couple of years since I saw the IMAX Space Station film but if I had to stick my neck out, I would say this film was more spectacular but the Space Station film had more astronaut type stuff.

Both very good films though, the IMAX format seems to lend itself to Space films more than any other type.

According to IMAX:
Visit a LEGO store on Saturday, August 14th and build the coolest LEGO space ship you can imagine, and you could win a free ticket to see Hubble 3D!
Hubble 3D is opening in more theaters ("opening wide") on August 20.

Saw Hubble 3D at Kennedy Space Center last month and I thought it was absolutely fantastic... 10/10.

The rest of my family thoroughly enjoyed it also and I think the fact that they have a familiar voice narrating (Leonardo DiCaprio), it makes it even more interesting for people not all that interested in space.

Anyone who has the chance to watch this (especially in 3D) I would highly recommend you do so!

Hubble 3D Blasts Off Again at Additional IMAX Theatres

IMAX Corporation and Warner Bros. Pictures today announced that Hubble 3D will expand to additional IMAX theatres on August 20th and will play for a special limited time engagement. The film, which initially debuted on March 19th and has launched in 55 domestic and 15 international IMAX locations thus far, has received rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. Hubble 3D has grossed more than $14 million in box office since it opened earlier this year.

"Thanks to our wonderful partners at Warner Bros. and NASA, Hubble 3D offered us the opportunity to take audiences on an astounding, immersive journey -- from the thundering launch into space to witness first-hand the astronauts' mastery at performing 'brain surgery' on Hubble, all the way to the outer edges of our universe in groundbreaking flythroughs," said Producer/Director Toni Myers. "We are gratified that the film was so well received during its initial launch, and we are very excited that more people will have the opportunity to learn about Hubble's amazing discoveries."

"We are thrilled with the success of Hubble 3D and the positive response to the film from critics and movie-goers alike," said Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. "Based upon the initial reaction, we knew it was essential for us to bring the film to more movie-goers around the country. We're confident new audiences will also be awe-struck by these images and the immersive quality of IMAX 3D, and we anticipate this title will play well for years to come."

"This is the summer of Leonardo DiCaprio at IMAX theatres -- with the enormous success of Inception and now the expansion of Hubble to additional sites across the country," said Greg Foster, President and Chairman, IMAX Filmed Entertainment. "We are fortunate he lent his tremendous talent as the narrator, and we are proud that Hubble 3D contributes to the great legacy of IMAX space films."

Through the power of IMAX 3D, Hubble 3D enables moviegoers to journey through distant galaxies to explore the grandeur and mysteries of our celestial surroundings, and accompany space-walking astronauts as they attempt some of the most difficult and important tasks in NASA's history. The film offers an inspiring and unique look into the Hubble Space Telescope's legacy and highlights its profound impact on the way we view the universe and ourselves.

Narrated by three-time Academy Award nominee Leonardo DiCaprio, the documentary adventure "Hubble 3D" reunites the "Space Station 3D" filmmaking team led by producer and director Toni Myers. Director of photography James Neihouse also served as the astronaut crew trainer. Graeme Ferguson, IMAX co-founder and pioneer producer of many IMAX space films, is the executive producer, and Judy Carroll, the film's associate producer. The music is composed by Micky Erbe and Maribeth Solomon. "Hubble 3D" is an IMAX and Warner Bros. Pictures production, in cooperation with National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Hubble 3D will also play in IMAX (2D) in various locations and will continue to debut at other IMAX locations in the months to come.

Gary Milgrom, Joel Katzowitz and I trekked to the Mall of Georgia yesterday to see Hubble at the IMAX theater. The 3-D effects were absolutely amazing. We discussed afterwards there were times when we felt we were violating the astronaut's personal space (NPI).

If you get a chance, go see it. It's an incredible experience. I just wish the film were longer.

Afterwards we got to drool over Gary's awesome space and racing collection.

I saw it at the National Air and Space Museum in DC about a month ago and it was the closest I've come to space travel! Both the 3D and special effects were some of the best I've ever seen!

Highly recommended!

Wonderful Shuttle footage, and interesting first-person views of repair/upgrade. 3D provided a great sense of 'being there' (I was prepared to be disappointed) with a nice cosmology primer mixed in as well.

The synthesized "galactic fly-throughs" I suppose combined multi-spectral imagery and distance data (?) and were well done. Our 16 year old left saying "nothing will ever seem big again" - I'll remind him of that quote next time he's feeling full of himself

A worthy way to spend an hour - wish it was longer - and a two thumbs up here. A good companion to the Neil DeGrasse Tyson book "Death by Black Hole" I'm just now finishing.
