Nutopia for Disney +
Bundle of goodness and global movie star Chris Hemsworth takes viewers on a rollercoaster personal journey as he explores how to combat aging and discover the full potential of the human body.
From Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, Jane Root’s Nutopia, and Chris Hemsworth and Ben Grayson’s newly formed Wild State, “Limitless” puts cutting-edge science of human longevity centre-stage. Part global scientific adventure, part personal journey, each episode of the series follows Chris as he takes up a gauntlet of physical and mental feats designed by world-class experts, scientists and doctors to unlock different aspects of the aging process. Each meticulously crafted challenge is rooted in game-changing science, drawing on new research and long-held traditions. Chris’ mission is to understand the limits of the human body better and discover ways we can all extend health and happiness into old age.
Keeping himself in peak physical condition and best known for portraying an immortal superhero, Chris has always taken care of his health and fitness. But, now in his late 30s, he wants to find out how to harness the potential of his mind and body to stay sharper, stronger and healthier for longer — not only for himself and his children but for his children’s children too. Each challenge pushes Chris further than he has ever gone before. Through the series, viewers will learn techniques they can use to improve their health and enhance their own lives.
Jamie Williams spent nine months editing the ‘Memory’ episode. Reflecting on the episode he said “The main aim of the edit was to take a film that had a big action hook and turn it into something that was reflective and cerebral. The biggest challenge was finding a way to represent something that’s very difficult to film – our memories. By mixing a dreamy, filmic approach with an effect heavy edit, we built a film that hopefully lures the audience into Chris Hemsworth’s mind, dialling into the nostalgia of youth and showing how important our earliest memories can be to who we are”.
We’re really looking forward to watching this one. The series will be available on 16th November on Disney+
