This June, Warner Home Video will release two new IMAX films on DVD to celebrate NASA and space exploration; The Dream is Alive, and Blue Planet.
Narrated by the legendary Walter Cronkite, “The Dream is alive welcomes you to journey into space alongside the astronauts on the space shuttle as they orbit around the Earth, floating as never before over the towering Andes, the boot of Italy, Egypt and the Nile. Witness firsthand a tension-filled satellite capture and repair and the historic first spacewalk by an American woman.
In ”Blue Planet”, from the unique vantage point of 200 miles above Earth’s surface, we see how natural forces – volcanoes, earthquakes and hurricanes – affect our world, and how a powerful new force – humankind – has begun to alter the face of the planet. From Amazon rain forests to Serengeti grasslands, Blue Planet inspires a new appreciation of life on Earth, our only home.
Both films will come with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround tracks, and will be presented in 1.33:1 fullscreen, slightly cropped from the standard 1.44:1 IMAX format. The films are approximately 40 minutes apiece.
Coming June 12th, both discs will have a suggested retail price of $19.98.
