November 13th, 2012
CLEVELAND (November 13, 2012) –Great Lakes Science Center and 3D Entertainment Distribution invite audiences on an incredible voyage, 200 million years back in time, for a face-to-face encounter with the T-Rex of the seas in a new IMAX movie, SEA REX: JOURNEY TO A PREHISTORIC WORLD, premiering Friday, November 23, at Great Lakes Science Center’s six-story OMNIMAX Theater.
SEA REX: JOURNEY TO A PREHISTORIC WORLD sheds light on the extraordinary prehistoric underwater world and its larger-than-life creatures, which with their daunting size and natural ability for predation, were ruling the seas 20 million years before dinosaurs roamed the earth.
Moviegoers will meet, in a modern-day aquarium, Julie, an imaginative young woman, and travel across the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods to discover a little-known universe populated by amazing animals: the powerful Liopleurodon, the long-necked Elasmosaurus, the "eye-lizard" Ophthalmosaurus, the ferocious Prognathodon, and the gigantic 75-foot Shonisaurus.

SEA REX: JOURNEY TO A PREHISTORIC WORLD is rated “Universal” by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), the equivalent of a “General Audience” rating from the MPAA. According to the BBFC, films classified as “Universal” are suitable for audiences aged 4 years and over.
“SEA REX: JOURNEY TO A PREHISTORIC WORLD is the ultimate combination of science and entertainment,” explain Pascal Vuong and Ronan Chapalain, the film’s co-writers and co-directors. “We are thrilled to immerse audiences in a truly unique giant screen experience, which goes beyond the traditional IMAX documentary thanks to an original story-driven screenplay that features state-of-the-art CGI sequences, historical re-enactments and top paleontologists who bring science to life!”
For the film’s producers Catherine Vuong and Francois Mantello, “Marine reptiles are just as remarkable and captivating as their terrestrial counterparts, the dinosaurs, and are ideally suited to the IMAX format as they, too, are of extraordinary size! Audiences will get to see some of the most astonishing creatures of all time glide right off the screen.”
