Celebrating the icons of our time with Emirates ice inflight entertainment

Honouring the iconic figures who have shaped both culture and history throughout the 20th century, Emirates passengers can now watch a host of acclaimed documentaries and movies featuring the late Queen Elizabeth II, Elvis Presley, and The Beatles, on the award-winning ice inflight entertainment system this October. 

Celebrating its 17th year as the ‘World’s Best Inflight Entertainment’ at the Skytrax World Airline Awards, the ice line-up includes exclusive brand-new releases such as Elizabeth: A Portrait in Parts – a touching tribute that charts the remarkable life of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning British monarch and longest serving female head of state in history.

Passengers can also enjoy the critically acclaimed 2022 movie – Elvis, a Baz Luhrmann directed biographical musical drama. True Elvis Presley fans can further immerse themselves in his extraordinary musical career with the Elvis Spotlight Collection and two documentaries available to watch on ice.

Music fans can engage in an exploration of the one of the world’s most influential bands, Brit rock and roll foursome – The Beatles, in a new documentary, The Beatles and India. The film is a unique historical chronicle of the enduring love affair between The Beatles and India featuring rare archival footage, photographs, eye-witness accounts, and expert comments on the contrast between their fast-paced celebrity lives in the West and their search for spiritual bliss in India.

Emirates continually updates its inflight content, adding hundreds of movies, TV shows, podcasts, and music channels each month to its extensive entertainment library. More new movies and shows now on ice include Minions: The Rise of Gru, Where the Crawdads Sing, Father of the Bride (2022), The Black Phone, James Webb: The $10 Billion Space Telescope, and the 2022 Emmy® award-winning Hacks: Seasons 1 and 2.
