The capsule collection of classic films and documentaries will be available on the award-winning inflight entertainment system — ice, on Emirates flights from 1 September 2023.
Emirates is the first airline to bring Warner Bros. centennial celebration to the skies with this unique collection of entertainment on ice. Alongside 6,500 channels of on-demand entertainment, 45 Academy Award® winning films, over 2,000 movies, 650 TV shows, and 4,000 hours of music, podcasts, and audiobooks across 40 languages, the newly launched Warner Bros. 100 films collection will feature milestone movies from the earliest classics like Casablanca and The Wizard of Oz, right through to recent blockbusters such as Dune and Elvis.
The collection will also include four Max Original documentary specials chronicling the history of the movie studio.
Exploring the impact of Warner Bros. on art, commerce and culture, 100 YEARS OF WARNER BROS. tells the unprecedented story of the fabled entertainment studio on its 100th anniversary. Featuring insights and first-person stories from directors, actors, executives, journalists and historians, the four specials trace Warner Bros.’ underdog origins — from its founding in the early 1920s by four brothers from an immigrant family, through decades of creative risks and impactful storytelling, to the historic mergers of the 2000s that transformed the company into a global entertainment powerhouse.
With narration by Morgan Freeman and clips from iconic films and hit TV series, 100 YEARS OF WARNER BROS. offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look into the indelible stories that have spoken to audiences around the world for generations. The documentaries feature interviews with over 60 legendary filmmakers, actors and executives including Martin Scorsese, Oprah Winfrey, Clint Eastwood, Tim Burton, George Clooney, Ellen DeGeneres, Daniel Radcliffe, Keanu Reeves, Oliver Stone and Robert De Niro.
