Giant-screen film producer and distributor MacGillivray Freeman Films has acquired worldwide distribution rights for December Media’s Hidden Universe.

The 3D film, slated for release to IMAX and other giant-screen theaters in the spring of next year, uses remastered imagery from the world’s largest telescopes, CGI, and physics simulations to depict the latest advances in astronomy.

The project, marking the first partnership between MacGillivray Freeman Films and December Media, is produced by December’s Stephen Amezdroz and directed by Russell Scott.

“The film offers a compelling picture of how scientists believe the universe began, starting with simulations that show the formation of the universe’s first stars, to today’s highest resolution images of such celestial structures as the Whirlpool Galaxy and Crab Nebula captured with the world’s most powerful telescopes and remastered into giant-screen 3D images,” said Amezdroz.
