New 3D Film Brings a Fascinating Prehistoric Underwater World Back to Life
The Hastings Museum and 3D Entertainment Distribution invites you 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 3D movie, Sea Rex 3D: Journey to a Prehistoric World, premiering this Saturday, February 4 at the Hastings Museum Digital 3D Theatre.
The film 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.
“The Earth’s history, scientifically speaking, is a remarkable one, full of incredible creatures and stories,” said Becky Matticks, Museum Director at the Hastings Museum. “It’s exciting to be able to tell the story that relates some much to Nebraska’s natural history as fossils of many of the creatures featured in the film can be found here.”
You’ll 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 3D: 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 3D: Journey to a Prehistoric World is showing at Hastings Museum through Sept. 3, 2012.
