April 12th, 2024

Amazon Studios has announced the coming release of a new IMAX documentary titled "The Blue Angels" featuring, you guessed it, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. The film promises a vivid visual journey through the team's air show season, from rigorous training to their high-energy performances. Immersive footage, shot in part by cinematographer and 2022 ICAS panelist Kevin LaRosa, includes never before witnessed angles of the team's signature aerial maneuvers in flight. Produced by J.J. Abrams and Top Gun: Maverick star Glen Powell, the film is directed by award-winning filmmaker Paul Crowder.


“We see this is yet another opportunity for our industry to get a well-deserved awareness boost,” said Adam Glowaski, ICAS Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “ICAS is working closely with Amazon to utilize our audience base as a key marketing opportunity, and we will continue to develop our unique brand of entertainment to draw in those newly minted fans and spectators.”


The film is set for release on May 17 and will be in IMAX theaters for one week before globally streaming on Prime Video starting May 23. Look for more information from ICAS soon about how you can utilize this marketing opportunity to your advantage in 2024.
