"The 11th Hour": Documentary on Human Impact on the Planet Starring Leonardo DiCaprio [VIDEO]

The 11th Hour, is a new global climate change documentary produced by and hosted by Leonardo DiCaprio. The video to your right is the official trailer for the film which will be coming to a theater near you on August 17th. Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth was one of the most financially successful documentaries of all-time, and it starred a vice president famous chided for being wooden behind a podium. Hopefully, by having DiCaprio star and narrate in this film, this film can appeal to an even broader audience. Check out the video to your right for more.
