An American pressing by Sony in June of 2005 (coinciding with the limited release of the film in the U.S.) is a regular commercial release.

Buy it... if you want to hear an even more romantic arrangement of the music from The Blue Planet, with more consistent title theme performances.

Avoid it... if the symphonic material from The Blue Planet did not interest you for some reason, or if you detest massive IMAX-style documentary scores.

Deep Blue: (George Fenton) At the start of the 2000's, the BBC television series The Blue Planet took the world by storm, featuring IMAX-sized visuals of the oceans' wonders and selling in great numbers once available. Richard Attenborough's narration and George Fenton's score for The Blue Planet, along with the wondrous vistas, made that film the success it was. For the 2004 expansion of the The Blue Planet concept, a major documentary feature film from BBC Worldwide and Greenlight Media entitled Deep Blue was made as a normal cinema counterpart for the television series. The film has slowly been debuting across the globe and Miramax has reportedly acquired Deep Blue for North American release in early 2005. It is a $5 million production which used twenty specialized camera teams, shooting more than 7,000 hours of footage at over 200 locations around the world and descending as far as 5,000 meters in the most powerful submersible craft available. Sporadically used narration by Sir Michael Gambon replaces Attenborough's voice and critics of the film state that Deep Blue is nothing more than a big-screen rehash of The Blue Planet or, at the very least, a feature-length selection of highlights from the series. No matter the content, audiences have already embraced the film with great enthusiasm, especially in Japan, and once again George Fenton's score is key to that success. The five-time Academy Award nominated composer has slowed his feature film scoring duties and been conducting concerts of his still-popular The Blue Planet score around the world, from London to Hong Kong, Copenhagen, and Los Angeles. Fenton won Ivor Novello, BAFTA and Emmy awards for his score for the original eight-episode TV series as well.
