Terrence Malick

 

Acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick‘s first foray into documentary film, “Voyage of Time,” has an official synopsis and poster as of today.

The project, which was more than 30 years in the making, will be released as two separate versions. The first, which will be released in IMAX Oct. 7, is 40 minutes long and narrated by Brad Pitt. The second version is a 90 minutes long, 35mm cut narrated by Cate Blanchett.

The second version does not yet have a release date. The official synopsis for the first version is as follows:

Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience is a one-of-a-kind celebration of life and the grand history of the cosmos, transporting audiences into a vast yet up-close-and personal journey that spans the eons from the Big Bang to the dinosaur age to our present human world … and beyond. A labor of love from one of American cinema’s most acclaimed and visually exciting filmmakers, Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life), Voyage of Time has been nearly four decades in the making and represents the filmmaker’s first foray into documentary storytelling. The film’s panorama of awe-inspiring images will take you into the heart of monumental events never witnessed — from the birth of the stars and galaxies to the explosion of diverse life-forms on planet earth, including humankind — in immersive new ways that only IMAX can deliver. This is a cosmic experience — a hymn to the glories of nature, life and scientific discovery — in which all the elements come together to form Malick’s most original film to date.

Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience, a 40-minute, giant-screen adventure narrated by Brad Pitt, which immerses audiences directly into the story of the universe and life itself, will be shown exclusively in IMAX® theatres.

“Voyage of Time” also features a score by Ennio Morricone, who famously won his first Oscar for the score to “The Hateful Eight” this past year.
