MANILA, Philippines – The most amazing dinosaur experience of all time will happen only on the big screen as we see “Patchi” take center stage during the Late Cretaceous era in “Walking with Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie.”
In the last 15 years since the movie was being made, dinosaur remains have been discovered from every continent, proving that these giant creatures thrived on every continent in the Mesozoic era. The remains of old and young alike suggests that the massive death were believed to be caused by catastrophic occurrences such as volcanic eruptions, diseases, climate change or heavenly bodies that struck the earth millions of years ago.
Dinosaur remains have been found on all continents and in all environments across the prehistoric globe.
The Troodons found in Alaska, which will be seen in the movie had large eyes and were much bigger than other troodon species elsewhere in the world. Their large eyes gave them an advantage in the polar dark winter, which allowed them to become the most successful predator there, and so they gradually got bigger.
Informed of these recent paleontological findings, “Walking with Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie” brings to life newly discovered dinosaurs in a unique and highly authentic way. Directors Neil Nightingale and Barry Cook have re-created one of the last great dinosaur eras in stunning detail, bringing to life on screen a world filled with fascinating creatures such as Pterosaurs, gigantic flying reptiles that once soared through Earth’s skies and Edmontosaurus, huge duck billed dinosaurs that could only be done justice on the big screen.
Using cutting edge technology, the filmmakers brought paleontologists together with world-class animators and paleo-artists to bring incredible life-like dinosaurs into theatres as they’ve never been captured before.
Set in Alaska about four million years before the Tyrannosaurus Rex, “Walking With Dinosaurs” is a rousing, compelling adventure full of humor and heartwarming moments as you see our hero Patchi draw on all of his courage, optimism and tenacity, risking his life for his loved ones and finding the inner strength he needs to survive.
As we follow his epic journey we meet a cast of colorful characters: Alex (an Alexornis), a colorful and gregarious bird, who likes to hold court. Scowler, Patchi’s ambitious older brother intent on becoming the leader of the herd and Juniper, a feisty female Pachyrhinosaurus who is swept into the adventure.
For the first time in movie history, audiences will truly see and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. “Walking with Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie” is the ultimate immersive big-screen experience that will introduce new and unique dinosaurs that are more real than ever before.
The movie’s official screening date starts January 8, 2014.
