BBC One has revealed that Babylon is scheduled to be shown on the BBC iPlayer in cinemascope in the UK from June 29.

The title is based on the original book by George R. R. Martin.

The BBC said that the new film will be released theatrically on the iPlayer on June 30, the day before the US premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18.

The film will then be shown to audiences via the BBC’s iPlayer programme from June 30 to July 4.

The UK and US premieres will also coincide with the release of the film on VOD in the following days.

The programme will also include exclusive interviews with cast and crew from the film, as well as behind-the-scenes footage.

The announcement follows the announcement of a new movie on BBC One, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
