Argue all you want about the best way to maximise your Star Wars movie viewing experience – IMAX, Atmos and Dolby Vision all suck compared to the format “Literally Among the Stars”.
That’s where crew members of the International Space Station will watch the film soon. The news was first reported by Robin Seemangal on Twitter.
I received confirmation from Disney and NASA sources that the crew aboard the International Space Station will be screening Star Wars: The Last Jedi.— Robin Seemangal (@nova_road) December 12, 2017
More details soon.
NASA confirmed the information to io9 and said that the film will be shown in English, as all crew members aboard the ISS speak both English and Russian.
There’s no timetable on when this screening will take place, but NASA’s Dan Hout told Inverse, “They typically get movies as digital files and can play them back on a laptop or a standard projector that is currently aboard.”
Now, let’s just hope they don’t broadcast any spoilers.
