About the Movie
IMAX®: Hubble, narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio, takes moviegoers on an unprecedented voyage through distant galaxies to explore the grandeur and mystery of our celestial surroundings. Experience never-before-seen flights through the farthest reaches of the universe, and accompany spacewalking astronauts on some of the most difficult and important endeavors in NASA's history. In May 2009, the crew of the Space Shuttle Atlantis launched a mission to make vital repairs and upgrades to the Hubble Space Telescope, the world's first space-based observatory, 350 miles above the Earth. On board was an IMAX camera, operated by the shuttle astronauts. It captured stunning sequences of the five intricate spacewalks required to make those repairs, as well as close-up images of the effort to grasp the orbiting telescope with the shuttle's mechanical arm at 17,500 mph, and one unexpected problem that threatened to sabotage the entire mission.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Dazzling to look at of course. But such ponderous, cliche-heavy narration.
Fresh: The IMAX screen is the ultimate planetarium in the awesome documentary Hubble 3D.
Fresh: The newly resurgent 3D format gets an out-of-this-world showcase in Hubble 3D.
Fresh: It's a movie that not only puts you in space but lets you travel through it with a speed and wonder that would make James T. Kirk go a little weak in the knees.
I would love this film, and no doubt it 'could' be worth the money but let's see: $19.99 for a 43:56 movie and it's NOT EVEN HD...Really? Boo on you Itunes; who makes these decisions? Very irritating sometimes.
Why would I buy an IMAX film in standard-definition for $19.99
Do they think that we are stupid? This is basically highway-robbery.
Who cares if you find it expensive?
Just dont buy it? Giving one star to a movie because you dont like the price has nothing to do with the quality of the content.
Not helpful at all to know you think 19.99 is too expensive to buy. Rental is the same as any other newly released movie.
