Experience IMAX® Documentary Films On Hulu This Summer
NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES, June 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, IMAX Corporation (NYSE: IMAX) announced that several titles from its celebrated catalog of critically acclaimed, eye-opening documentary films will be available to stream exclusively on Hulu in the U.S. beginning this summer, kicking off with "A Beautiful Planet," "Pandas," and more. In total, at least 16 IMAX® documentaries will roll out on Hulu over the next several weeks and months, with over four decades of the most powerful and daring explorations humankind has ever embarked upon becoming available for subscribers and their families.
"With people at home there is an immense and growing desire for discovery, particularly for students, families and children. For years IMAX has helped share the power of the natural world and the potential of human existence, and now, together with Hulu, we can bring those incredible, enlightening experiences to millions more," said Megan Colligan, President of IMAX Entertainment.
Since the first IMAX film "Tiger Child" debuted at Expo '70 in Osaka, Japan, IMAX has helped transport audiences into the most fantastic moments in human and natural history across more than 75 documentaries and counting. Documentaries using IMAX technology have been nominated for Academy Awards® ("Fires of Kuwait" 1992) and traveled to the depths of the sea ("Journey to the South Pacific" 2013), while IMAX® cameras have ventured into space 24 times – more than any human being. Hollywood's biggest stars have also repeatedly lent their voices to IMAX documentaries, including narrations from Tom Cruise ("Space Station" 2002), Jennifer Lawrence ("A Beautiful Planet" 2016), Kristen Bell ("Pandas" 2018), and more. The next documentary film from IMAX will be "Asteroid Hunters," narrated by Daisy Ridley.
Hulu subscribers will now have the opportunity to discover the ends of the earth and beyond with IMAX, all through the eyes of legendary cinematographers, heroic scientists, rarities of the animal kingdom and more.
