    The preview alone looks spectacular. I’ve always wondered what the Earth looked like from outside. Of course, there are tons of images but it would be great to see it on the big screen the IMAX way.

    This looks amazing! I love when IMAX has movies that make you learn but that are done in a way that make you realize that the world is so small! I definitely want to see this!

  3. Sara says:

    Oh man, I can’t wait for this. Although very short, the way the earth looks in the trailer is breathtaking. It’ll be such an experience seeing it in IMAX.

    How incredible this looks! I would definitely like to see this, if just for the imagery alone. Thanks for sharing!
