Watch the first trailer for Terrence Malick's Voyage of Time, which chronicles the history of the cosmos

It’s been a long time coming, but the first trailer for Terrence Malick’s IMAX project Voyage of Time has finally arrived. Yeah, this one is looking ambitious.

Narrated by Brad Pitt, the film aims to celebrate the grand history of the cosmos, spanning everything from the Big Bang all the way through to the modern day. It marks Malick’s first attempt at a documentary, and it certainly doesn’t lack for scope. The footage looks absolutely gorgeous, and this should certainly make for one heck of an IMAX experience.

Here’s the project’s official synopsis:

Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience is a one-of-a-kind celebration of life and the grand history of the cosmos, transporting audiences into a vast yet up-close and personal journey that spans the eons from the Big Bang to the dinosaur age to our present human world… and beyond. A labor of love from one of American cinema’s most acclaimed and visually exciting filmmakers, Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life), Voyage of Time has been nearly four decades in the making and represents the filmmaker’s first foray into documentary storytelling.

The film’s panorama of awe-inspiring images will take you into the heart of monumental events never witnessed — from the birth of the stars and galaxies to the explosion of diverse life-forms on planet earth, including humankind — in immersive new ways that only IMAX can deliver. This is a cosmic experience — a hymn to the glories of nature, life and scientific discovery — in which all the elements come together to form Malick’s most original film to date.

Voyage of Time is set to hit IMAX theaters on Oct. 7.
