Only 12 have walked on the moon. This Fall, you're next! The IMAX® space legacy continues with "Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon 3D," which will take audiences to the surface of the Moon to walk alongside the extraordinary Apollo astronauts who have stepped upon its surface. With never before seen photographs, CGI renditions of the lunar landscape and previously unreleased NASA footage, audiences will be immersed in the life-changing experiences of these astronauts by showcasing what they saw, heard, felt, thought and did while on the lunar surface. Produced by Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman of Playtone and by IMAX Corporation, "Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon 3D" is directed by Mark Cowen, Emmy Award nominee for the documentary film "We Stand Alone Together: The Men Of Easy Company," and executive produced by Mark Herzog and Hugh Murray. The film's content is based on "The Lunar Surface Journals," a massive archival database compiled over the last decade by Dr. Eric Jones, which chronicles the moon walks as recounted by the astronauts. "Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon 3D" is sponsored by Lockheed Martin Corporation and filmed with the cooperation of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
