Shout! Factory is taking audiences into the final frontier this summer.
Shout! Factory will launch audiences into space this summer in the brand new documentary IMAX: Journey To Space. The program is the first of Shout! Factory’s Giant Screen films. It will be released on Tuesday, June 7th, 2016 and will be available on separate Blu-ray and 4K UHD + 3D Blu-ray + Blu-ray 2-disc combo packs. Both platforms will include trailers, a photo gallery, behind-the-scenes footage, and more. It is narrated by veteran actor and thespian Sir Patrick Stewart.
The story presented in IMAX: Journey to Space follows NASA in its next ambitious era. This includes the agency’s plans and preparations for a manned flight to Mars, capturing asteroids, and much more. It puts the kibosh on the belief that NASA’s space program ended with the end of its shuttle program. Throughout the course of the story there are interviews with astronauts Chris Ferguson (Commander of the final shuttle mission), Serena Aunon (an astronaut chosen for future flights), and others used to help tell the documentary’s story. It also offers a historical context to the impact of the shuttle program in discussing NASA’s future.
IMAX: Journey To Space will be available in stores Tuesday, June 7th. The standalone Blu-ray will retail for MSRP of $19.99. The 4K UHD + 3D Blu-ray + Blu-ray combo pack will retail for MSRP of $39.93. It can be pre-ordered online now via Shout! Factory’s online store at the respective discounted prices of $16.99 (Blu-ray) and $34.93 (4K UHD + 3D Blu-ray + Blu-ray) via Shout!
