Aerofilms to Screen English-Language Version of Earth: One Amazing Day in Prague
BBC Films’ Planet Earth, released back in 2006, and last year’s sequel Planet Earth II, are two of the most beloved TV series ever made. Currently, they rank #1 and #3 on IMDb’s list of the top rated TV shows of all time, sandwiching Band of Brothers and edging out Game of Thrones.
It’s easy to see why: filled with breathtaking nature photography and illuminating David Attenborough narration, they capture the rare feat of being both captivating and educational. And given the gorgeous high-def photography - some of the best footage of our planet ever put to film - they look the best on the biggest TV screens.
That makes a good transition to the cinema, and in 2007 footage from Planet Earth was re-edited for the feature-length film Earth and released in cinemas worldwide, with new narration from Patrick Stewart (in the UK) and James Earl Jones (in the US).
It’s déja vu ten years later, as footage from the second series has been culled to make the feature-length Earth: One Amazing Day, which is rolling out in cinemas around the world this fall and winter.
The Czech Republic will be among the first countries to screen the film when it hits cinemas this Thursday, October 26. Most cinemas will show a Czech-language version of the film with narration by Ivan Trojan.
But distributor Aerofilms will also be presenting the English-language version of the film at Prague cinemas including Světozor, Aero, and Oko, and other cinemas throughout Prague and the Czech Republic, with narration by Robert Redford.
While both actors have big shoes to fill in replacing Attenborough, it’s good news for local English speakers living in Prague. The English-language version of the film will also feature Czech subtitles.
At Kino Světozor, the English-language version of Earth: One Amazing Day will be screened daily throughout the next week with showtimes ranging from 18:15 to 21:00. It will also screen at Kino Aero on October 27 at 20:30, October 30 at 18:00, and November 1 at 20:30, and at Bio Oko on November 1 at 20:30.
Keep an eye out for additional dates at Světozor, Aero, and Oko. These aren't the only cinemas screening the English-language version of the film: check your local listings for additional showtimes at a theater near you.
