Earth

Preview by Jack Foley

EARTH represents the last chance to see some of our planet’s most beautiful animals and a first encounter with spectacular locations that have never before been filmed,” according to Alastair Fothergill, the acclaimed director of new documentary Earth.

Five years in the making, Earth follows the influence of the sun on life on the planet. The critical and international success of Deep Blue proved that audiences were eager to be immersed in the natural history of our world.

Now Earth takes audiences on an unforgettable journey around the planet, using the sun as our guide and three engrossing characters to tell its story.

Narrated by Patrick Stewart and with music composed and conducted by George Fenton, Earth offers viewers a chance to recognise and celebrate the beauty of our planet; while at the same time serving as a timely reminder of the ecological fragility of our planet and the creatures that live on it.

The film’s three main characters – polar bear, elephant and humpback whale – show the challenges faced by creatures whose lives are dominated by a migratory existence in a world that is fast changing.

The natural history of our planet has never been filmed on such a scale before as Earth uses resources and technology on an unprecedented scale, to reveal rarely observed animal behaviours.

These are three incredible journeys; full of beauty, but also rife with danger and Earth combines rare action‚ unimaginable scale‚ impossible locations and intimate moments among our planet’s best–loved‚ wildest and most elusive creatures.

Earth will be released by Lionsgate UK on November 16, 2007. Check out photos from the film or watch the trailer
