Here's exciting news for you IMAX lovers! Filmmakers Jean-Jacques and Francois Mantello (the Mantello Brothers) and film ambassador Jean-Michel Cousteau announced today that their new IMAX 3D Theatre film DOLPHINS AND WHALES 3D will feature our "Love Life" and Splash star fave Daryl Hannah as the narrator. The film explores the daily lives of small and giant animals of the deep, as they interact, play and communicate. This is the first time humpback whales, belugas, orcas, bottlenose dolphins and manatees have been filmed in 3D for the world's biggest screens and, unlike other IMAX films, this was shot entirely in the water.DOLPHINS AND WHALES 3D delivers a powerful message in that we need to be more aware of ocean conservation and protect the animals that thrive in the environment. "It is amazing how much we share with these beautiful creatures - play, family, education, community, struggles," Daryl Hannah said in a press release. "Unfortunately, because we often are so unaware of these underwater tribes and our negative impact upon them through slaughterings and uncontrolled human activities, they are facing the greatest challenge of all: to survive the destruction of their habitat and depletion of food resources."
The film premiers at New England Aquarium's Simons IMAXÂ® Theatre in Boston on February 13th, and on February 15th, 3D Entertainment Distribution's release will open to the general public at the New England Aquarium. Additional locations include the Virginia Aquarium (Virginia Beach, VA), Texas State History Museum (Austin, TX) and Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo (Omaha, NE). The film will then roll out at both domestic- and international IMAXÂ® 3D Theatres throughout the year. ::DOLPHINS AND WHALES 3D
