Ridley Scott's YouTube-Sourced 'Life In A Day' Documentary Opens To 97% On Rotten Tomatoes

One year ago today, producer Ridley Scott and director Kevin McDonald (The Last King of Scotland) asked the world to submit a slice of their life via YouTube. Over 80,000 videos from 140 different nations later, the final 94-minute cut is an inspiring, deeply personal look at humanity. After hitting the festival circuit, Life In A Day opened in US cinemas today to wide acclaim. Here's the trailer.

The entirely YouTube crowd sourced documentary has been confirmed for cinematic release in the UK, Germany and the US. No word yet on Australia, though it has been picked up by National Geographic for worldwide distribution. [Life In A Day]
