BBC Worldwide announces a limited engagement run of documentary "One Life," narrated by Daniel Craig. From the creators of "Earth: the Movie," the fifth highest-grossing documentary to date, the film follows the spectrum of the human journey from birth until the "delivery of the next generation."

The documentary is helmed by Michael Gunton ("Earth") and Martha Holmes ("Blue Planet") of the BBC Natural History unit. It marks the first non-fiction film for which actor Craig has lent his voice, and will be in the mold of David Attenborough's famous "Blue Planet" narration.

Craig stated: “For the filmmakers who spend their entire lives recording beautiful images of planet earth’s dwindling wildlife, I have only a sense of awe and a deep rooted respect. I am incredibly fortunate to have been given the chance to play a very small part in that process."

The film will premiere on more than 400 screens on February 21. Screenvision is partnering with the BBC for U.S. theatrical distribution. Theater and ticketing information is here.
