(March 17, 2005 - Burbank, CA) - Prepare to launch 220 miles above Earth at 17,500 mph to experience a remarkable out-of-this-world adventure with the popular IMAX® film "Space Station," the first-ever cinematic journey to the famed International Space Station (ISS). As astoundingly beautiful as it is technically dazzling, this extraordinary film, narrated by Academy Award®-winner Tom Cruise, is the closest most people will ever come to real space exploration. Blasting off onto DVD June 7, this one of a kind DVD is loaded with extras and priced to own at $19.98 SRP from Warner Home Video. One of the most popular IMAX® films ever (over $57 Million U.S. Box Office), "Space Station" treats audiences like real astronauts from blast-off to life inside the ISS. Made with the cooperation of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), "Space Station" is the story of the unique partnership of 16 nations building a laboratory in outer space – a permanent facility for the study of the effects of long-duration exposure to zero gravity and the necessary first step towards the global co-operative effort needed if man is to someday set foot on Mars. The film is highlighted by the challenges, setbacks and triumphs of this groundbreaking engineering feat … and ultimately, the shared international victory of men and women whose dreams exceed the limits of life on Earth. "Space Station" follows two separate space shuttles that leave from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center and Russia’s Baikonur Cosmodrome to rendezvous with their new home in orbit 220 miles above Earth. Now people of every age and language can work side by side with their space-walking crewmates, building and inhabiting this unprecedented structure in space.
