""October 23, 2023—Deep Sky, the new IMAX original documentary, premiered on October 18 at the AMC Lincoln Square IMAX in New York.

Deep Sky brings the awe-inspiring images captured by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to IMAX® — taking audiences on a journey to the beginning of time and space, to never-before-seen cosmic landscapes, and to recently discovered exoplanets, planets around other stars. Thirteen billion years in the making, Deep Sky reveals the universe as we have never seen it before, immersing audiences in the stunning pictures beamed back to earth by NASA’s new telescope—and capturing their vast beauty at a scale that can only be experienced on the giant IMAX screen.

Written, directed, and produced by Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Nathaniel Kahn and narrated by Oscar®-nominated actress Michelle Williams, Deep Sky follows the high-stakes global mission to build NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope and to launch it into orbit one-million miles from Earth in an attempt to answer questions that have haunted us since the beginning of time. Where did we come from? How did the universe begin? Are we alone?

IMAX co-financed the film with major funding provided by the Northrop Grumman Foundation. IMAX and the filmmakers are grateful to NASA, ESA, CSA, the Space Telescope Science Institute, and AURA for their assistance in making this film.
