Far Northern Australia is a land of extremes. Huge bushfires ravage the ancient landscape in the dry season and the world’s biggest thunderstorms bring torrential rain and flooding in the wet season. These almost Jurassic conditions have created some of the richest wetlands on Earth.
The coast, rivers and waterholes are haunted by sharks. The plains are guarded by territorial buffalo and venomous snakes but the apex predator here is a living dinosaur the salt water crocodile. They have been on the planet in almost identical form for 200 million years – even surviving the meteor strike that wiped out the rest of the dinosaurs.
Crocodiles are the ultimate predators. They attack with stealth, are extremely aggressive and can grow up to 7 meters in length. Up here, they have even been known to attack and pull fisherman out of boats.
This film will carry the viewers across the whole Top End of Australia, from the wild Kimberly coast through mysterious and rarely seen Arnhem Land and then deep into the world’s oldest rainforest in Cape York.
Come with us on an epic journey through some of the wildest landscapes on Earth as we take you deep into crocodile’s world. AUSTRALIA UNDISCOVERED will be shot in magnificent 8K for IMAX and other Giant Screen theaters. Specialized underwater camera rigs have been designed to get the audience closer than ever before to the most powerful jaws on Earth.
A lone climber, suspended hundreds of feet in the air, struggles to find the next finger hold, defining progress in inches. The dramatic visuals immerse us in a gripping contest of human determination versus the reality of gravity’s potent grip. CLIFFHANGERS explores the precarious relationship of humanity’s quest to scale some of the world’s highest places, while also revealing the scientific and technological advances that have enabled us to conquer these peaks, exposing the heartbeat of the human soul.
A tapestry of jaw-dropping action, combined with rich STEM content…..for example, physics of the real world – how climbing is a tug-of-war between friction and gravity, while skiing involves the same battle of forces in reverse. Educational insights about the engineering of climbing gear and skis, and the aeronautical effects of a wingsuit, are seamlessly integrated with dramatic visuals and action. The film will be narrated by Willem Dafoe and release early 2018.
Mighty. Rugged. Magnificent.
Mountains tower above the plains and dominate the skyline. Critical to life – they fill our rivers, sway the weather, and provide sanctuary to incredibly diverse wildlife. They are as beautiful as they are dangerous – and for a brave few, they are the source of incredible adventure.
Follow Australian Olympic gold medalist Torah Bright, as she journeys through the great American Cordillera, the world’s longest chain of mountain ranges extending from Antarctica all the way to Alaska. Along the journey, Torah will encounter world-class snow athletes, scientists and environmentalists who all seek a deeper understanding of the mountains that inspire them.
From glaciated valleys to icy tundras, we’ll venture through the mountain’s most awe-inspiring vistas. We’ll discover the crucial role mountains play in our ecosystem and every day life, while witnessing the most spectacular snowboard action ever brought to the giant screen!
Breakthrough advancements in technology are enabling never before possible scientific experimentation. These fascinating machines, such as the $13 billion Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, provide an unprecedented pathway to answers surrounding the nature of our universe. Thousands of scientists, with a diversity of backgrounds and expertise, journey from all over the world to labs like CERN (the host of the LHC) and Fermilab (new host of ICARUS and the highly-anticipated DUNE project)- now with a real hope of unlocking the secrets that have long eluded us. Dark matter, antimatter, extra dimensions, and more, join them as they push the boundaries of the possible, on the cusp of turning science fiction into science fact.
