Literature’s most famous race against the calendar comes to you with an innovative new adaptation of Jules Verne’s classic novel Around the World in Eighty Days. David Tennant stars as Phileas Fogg, the Englishman who bets a fortune that he can circumnavigate the planet in a mere 80 days—quite a feat, considering that it’s 1872.
Tennant is joined on this remarkable journey around the world by French actor Ibrahim Koma as Jean Passepartout, Fogg’s irrepressible valet, and German actress Leonie Benesch as Abigail “Fix” Fortescue, a determined and inspired journalist. The trio of intrepid traveling companions embark on an expedition that packs far more adventure than they bargained for. Join their adventure with OPB Passport!
