“Next to firefighters, there may be no more frontline view of our changing climate than storm chasers. It’s a terrifying and beautiful pursuit that will be stunning in the IMAX format,” said Adam McKay.
“This film will transport audiences to the eye of the storm; the sheer power and beauty of nature has never been seen like this before,” said John Turner, Head of Documentaries for IMAX. “We’re excited to announce this new documentary with Hyperobject Industries. ‘Stormbound’ is what a documentary blockbuster should be about: incredible storytelling matched with IMAX’s unparalleled immersive experience.”
“Stormbound” chronicles the beautiful yet dangerous world of storm chasing during peak storm season in the United States, and follows the intimate journey of one man’s struggle to find peace in the most unlikely of places. Featuring remarkable unseen footage of Hurricanes Charley, Florence, Ian, Irma, and Katrina, “Stormbound” will showcase nature’s raw power with an inspiring true story of hope and survival.
“Stormbound” is directed by award-winning filmmaker Miko Lim (“Ocean Mother”) and produced by Academy Award®-winning producers Adam McKay (“Don’t Look Up”), Todd Schulman and Trevor Jones and IMAX’s John Turner. Hyperobject Industries’ Stephanie Mercado will Executive Produce. IMAX is financing the film. WME and JSSK brokered the deal.
