Jennifer Lawrence took on a new role as the narrator of A Beautiful Planet!
Jennifer Lawrence won’t be going to space on film until “Passengers” comes out at the end of the year, but she got a headstart Saturday at the premiere of “A Beautiful Planet,” the documentary from IMAX and NASA that she narrates. The documentary was shot digitally and features footage from the International Space Station.
The film premiered at the AMC Loews 13 in Manhattan. In addition to Lawrence, notable attendees included Aziz Ansari, Neil deGrasse Tyson, the film’s writer and director Toni Myers, IMAX CEO Richard Gelfond, as well as the NASA astronauts featured in the documentary.
“A former astronaut, Mike Massimino, told me Jennifer was really into space and she was really into the environment,” Gelfond explained. “So when I heard Mike tell me that, matter of factly, kind of a bell rang.”
