LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Documentary Channel has signed a deal with Imax Corp. for the exclusive U.S. rights to 21 library titles, including the Tom Cruise-narrated “Space Station.”

The films, which represent some of Imax’s most successful with a combined gross box office of more than $600 million, will be televised for the first time in the U.S. as a result of the deal. Other titles include the Tom Hanks-narrated “Magnificent Desolation” as well as “T-Rex: Back to the Cretaceous.”

The 2-year-old Nashville-based network plans to air them throughout the year. Imax has made the movies available in specially remastered high-definition and traditional broadcast formats.
