K2 Communications and Giant Screen Films are producing "Journey to Space," coming to IMAX screens in 2015.
Regardless of where in the world you live, many of us have grown up watching numerous shuttle launches, preceding missions to the space station. With precision that rivaled a Swiss watch, the trips almost became commonplace. Now with the shuttles retired, we are left to look at the program from a historical perspective, as we try to understand just what it meant to the next chapter in space exploration.

That question will be explored in a joint K2/GSF production, "Journey to Space." The film will celebrate what these icons of space travel contributed to the global advancement of space exploration. The film's look to the future will explore how the shuttle helped provide the foundation for our next planetary space race, and humankind's first visit to Mars. The opening act for the trip to the Red Planet will be the capture and relocation of a nearby asteroid. For many of us, this will all happen during our lifetime.

STS-135 commander Chris Ferguson tweeted about "Journey to Space," which is filming at Johnson Space Center's Space Vehicle Mockup Facility:
Making "Journey to Space". Coming next year to an IMAX theater near you.

'Journey To Space' to take moviegoers on giant-screen trip to Mars

Having successfully splashed down after its first exploration flight test, NASA's Orion spacecraft is set to launch onto the big screen in a new large-format 3D movie premiering in February.

"Journey To Space," from K2 Communications and Giant Screen Films, tells the true exciting story of what the next chapter of space exploration holds for both the near- and long-term. "Journey To Space," presented by The Boeing Company and Toyota, showcases the plans by NASA and the larger space community to land astronauts on Mars.

"I don't know if I will ever get to walk on Mars, but I may already know some of those who will," a female voiceover says in the first trailer for "Journey To Mars," released on Thursday (Dec. 11).
