DUBAI, UAE, 5 October 2022: Honouring the iconic figures who have shaped both culture and history throughout the 20th century, Emirates passengers can now watch a host of acclaimed documentaries and movies featuring the late Queen Elizabeth II, Elvis Presley, and The Beatles, on the award-winning ice inflight entertainment system this October.
Celebrating its 17th year as the ‘World’s Best Inflight Entertainment at the Skytrax World Airline Awards, the ice line-up includes exclusive brand-new releases such as Elizabeth: A Portrait in Parts- a touching tribute that charts the remarkable life of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning British monarch and longest-serving female head of state in history.
Passengers can also enjoy the critically acclaimed 2022 movie – Elvis, a Baz Luhrmann-directed biographical musical drama, which has already been a huge hit at the box office. True Elvis Presley fans can further immerse themselves in his extraordinary musical career with the Elvis Spotlight Collection featuring six classic movies; Jailhouse Rock (1957), It Happened at the World’s Fair (1963), Viva Las Vegas! (1964), Tickle Me (1965), Speedway (1968) and Live a Little, Love a Little (1968). A further two documentaries on the rock and roll star, including ‘Making the Movies Special – Elvis + Music in Films’ and ‘Classic Albums: Elvis Presley’, are available to watch on ice.
Music fans can engage in an exploration of one of the world’s most influential bands, Brit rock and roll foursome – The Beatles, in a new documentary, The Beatles and India. The film is a unique historical chronicle of the enduring love affair between The Beatles and India, featuring rare archival footage, photographs, eye-witness accounts, and expert comments on the contrast between their fast-paced celebrity lives in the West and their search for spiritual bliss in India, which lead to an inspirational burst of creative song-writing.
Throughout 2022, the most-viewed genres on ice so far are documentaries, action, thrillers, and comedies. This year, the most watched movies on ice include Spider-Man: No Way Home, the latest James Bond movie, No Time to Die and the Academy Award-winning King Richard starring Will Smith.
