February 28, 2017 Accolades No Comments Email Email

LATAM Airlines Group is to feature 13 films nominated in the 2017 Academy Awards – which take place this Sunday, 26 February, in Los Angeles, USA – as part of its inflight entertainment on international flights over the coming months.

“At LATAM we are committed to offering the best in inflight entertainment, not only by taking advantage of the latest technology but also showcasing premium content.  We hope our passengers enjoy this extensive collection of some of the most critically acclaimed films of the year,”said Paula Ferrada, Cabin Journey Manager at LATAM Airlines Group.

Over the coming months, LATAM passengers on long haul flights will be able to watch 13 Oscar®-nominated films that include:

  • ‘La La Land,’ which has been nominated for 14 Oscars, including best film, best actor and best actress in a leading role, and will be available on-board in March and April. Starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, La La Land tells the story of an actress and a jazz musician who chase their dreams in a heart-lifting, music-filled film from the director of Whiplash.
  • ‘Hacksaw Ridge,’ a film directed by Mel Gibson set during the Second World War, which portrays the story of Desmond who decides to enlist in the army – despite his religion forbiding him from taking up arms – and his experiences in the Battle of Okinawa.  Hacksaw Ridge will be available onboard between April and May, and has been shortlisted for six Academy Awards including best film and best director.
  • ‘Moonlight,’ a drama nominated for eight Oscars that follows the life of Chiron, a poor, shy Afro-American, and his fight in a tough neighbourhood of Miami, which will be available in April and May on LATAM flights.
  • ‘Arrival,’ a science-fiction drama about the arrival of mysterious spacecraft and the investigation of an elite military team led by expert linguist Louise Banks, played by Amy Adams.  Boasting eight nominations, Arrival will be playing onboard throughout March and April. 
  • ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’, a spin-off from the epic blockbuster Star Wars series, which has been nominated for two Oscars and will be available on-board during April and May.

The Oscar®-nominated films will be available in both Economy and Premium Business classes on all LATAM long haul flights that offer seat-back inflight entertainment (Boeing 787, 767, 777 and Airbus A350 aircraft).
