The giant-screen documentary adventure “Hidden Universe 3D” takes audiences on an extraordinary journey deep into space in the cinematic medium that transports audiences like no other. With the full power of IMAX 3D cinematography, the deepest reaches of our universe are brought to life with unprecedented clarity through real images captured by the world’s most powerful telescopes—seen on-screen and in 3D for the first time.
Stunning, high-resolution 3D images of space allow moviegoers to explore the earliest galaxies, watch stars being born in vivid clouds of gas and dust, tour the surface of Mars, and witness images of distant celestial structures including stunning views of the Sun. Seen for the first time in IMAX 3D, these dramatic new images offer fresh insight into the origins and evolution of the universe.
Narrated by Golden Globe winner Miranda Richardson, “Hidden Universe 3D” is a December Cinema Productions film produced in association with Film Victoria, Swinburne University of Technology, and the European Southern Observatory (ESO). Executive produced by Emmy®-award-winning producer Tony Wright. Produced in association with MacGillivray Freeman Films. Produced by Stephen Amezdroz and written and directed by Russell Scott. The musical score is by Dale Cornelius.
December Cinema Productions is a division of December Media, one of Australia’s most experienced producers of award-winning live action and documentary television. With more than 20 years of experience, the company is known for its high-quality dramas, documentaries and series made for Australian and international markets. “Hidden Universe 3D” is the company’s first film for IMAX theatres and follows in its long tradition of making screen-based entertainment that excites and inspires.
“History has taught us that no matter how well we understand a system – whether it is a biological system like a human being, or a physical system like a galaxy – when we look at it in a new or more in-depth way, we see and learn new things,” said Greg Poole, one of the two astronomers featured in the film. “It’s hard to say exactly what form these new insights will take, for that is the nature of scientific discovery. It’s impossible to predict.”
What is possible to predict is that starting in September, Hidden Universe 3D will take us all deeper into space than ever before.
