Darren Aronofsky next film, Postcards From Earth, will play at Las Vegas’ groundbreaking MSG Sphere venue. More here.

If you happen to be in Las Vegas later this year, you might want to pencil in a trip to the MSG Sphere. As cinemas go, it sounds pretty groundbreaking. Why? Well, according to The Hollywood Reporter it ‘features a 160,000-square-foot, 16K-by-16K wraparound LED display, custom spatial audio system and 4D capabilities enabled through haptic seats and environmental effects.’

The ultra-high definition screen that wraps around your peripheral vision has early previews lauding its realism and whilst we’re not sure realism should always be the goal with cinema (some attempts to harness high frame rate filmmaking spring to mind) this looks to be a unique entity, with films shot specially for its one-of-a-kind screen.

One such film is the next movie from Darren Aronofsky (pictured with Russell Crowe on the set of Noah). Titled Postcards From Earth, the film is described as part narrative, part documentary. ‘a sci-fi journey deep into our future as our descendants reflect on our shared home.’

The film has been shot with a unique camera and whilst this technological setup looks to be a one-off, we suppose its also true that all cinema innovation started with a one-off design. We’ll see how audiences respond to Aronofsky’s cinematic trailblazing when the MSG Sphere opens to the public in October.
