A Beautiful Planet is a breathtaking portrait of Earth from space, providing a unique perspective and increased understanding of our planet and galaxy as never seen before. Made in cooperation with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the film features stunning footage of our magnificent blue planet — and the effects humanity has had on it over time — captured by the astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
Narrated by Jennifer Lawrence and from IMAX Entertainment and acclaimed filmmaker Toni Myers, A Beautiful Planet presents an awe-inspiring glimpse of Earth and a hopeful look into the future of humanity.
