IMAX’s Newest Space Film to Celebrate Men Who Have Walked on the Moon

In the history of mankind, only
12 men have stepped on the surface of the moon … Magnificent Desolation is
their story. IMAX Corporation , in association with
Playtone (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and its principals Tom Hanks and Gary
Goetzman, has begun active development on this unique new 3D film which will
allow moviegoers to explore the moon as if they were traveling alongside these
12 extraordinary voyagers. The project will detail what these men saw, heard,
felt, thought and did while on the surface of the moon. Magnificent
Desolation will be shot in the giant 15/70 format using 3D IMAX cameras and
will be released exclusively in IMAX theatres.
