Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure (3D/2D)

bigImage Stunning photo-realistic computer-generated animated transports audiences back to the Late Cretaceous, when a great inland sea divided North America in two. The film follows a curious and adventurous dolichorhynchops – familiarly known as a 'dolly' – as she travels through the most dangerous oceans in history. Along the way, she encounters long-necked plesiosaurs, giant turtles, enormous fish, fierce sharks, and the most dangerous sea monster of all, the mosasaur.

SEA MONSTERS weaves together a series of paleontological digs from around the globe in a compelling story about scientists working as detectives to answer questions about this ancient and mysterious ocean world. Viewers accompany modern and historical fossil hunters to remote locations as they excavate the remains of some of the most awe-inspiring creatures of all time, unearthing amazing discoveries which shed light on exactly what happened to the film’s incredible cast of characters.

The film combines the powerful and experiential nature of the giant screen with strong science and educational materials which highlight the complexity and fragility of life in Earth’s oceans, and a powerful multi-media launch plan. Merging ultra-high-resolution 3D graphics with National Geographic’s trademark authenticity, compelling imagery and powerful storytelling, SEA MONSTERS is an unforgettable prehistoric adventure.
