Washington, DC, USA — National Geographic Cinema Ventures (NGCV) announced today that the film “Jerusalem,” releasing this fall, will feature narration by actor and star of the new “Star Trek” movie Benedict Cumberbatch. The film, which tells the stories of real-life inhabitants and archaeologists exploring the enduring appeal of the ancient city, will be available in 3-D and 2-D, 15/70 film and digital formats for giant, dome and flat screens when it is released worldwide in September 2013.
Cumberbatch, who plays villain John Harrison in “Star Trek into Darkness,” is a film, television and theater actor whose other notable roles include Stephen Hawking in the BBC drama “Hawking,” Paul Marshall in “Atonement,” Major Stewart in “War Horse” and Sherlock Holmes in the BBC series “Sherlock.” He will play WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in the highly anticipated film “The Fifth Estate,” slated for release in November 2013.
“We have been excited about this film from the very beginning,” said National Geographic’s Mark Katz, president of NGCV Distribution. “Now, in addition to the stunning visuals and captivating story, we have the perfect person to guide the audience through this cinematic journey. Benedict Cumberbatch is a great addition to ‘Jerusalem,’ and we couldn’t be happier to have him as part of this extraordinary project.”
“Jerusalem” is an original production from Cosmic Picture and Arcane Pictures, which celebrates one of the world’s oldest and most enigmatic cities. The 45-minute, giant-screen film gives audiences a rare tour of the storied city as well as exclusive access to iconic holy sites and little-known parts of the region. Aside from the breathtaking scenery, “Jerusalem” explores some of the surprising intersections among Judaism, Christianity and Islam, which come together in this sacred city.
