The Mantello Brothers’ 3D Entertainment Distribution has announced plans for its new underwater film Sea Rex:Journey To A Prehistoric World.

The film will open on May 7 in 3D and 2D at select IMAX theatres and will roll out in selected IMAX out across the Americas, Europe and Asia.

Sea Rex: Journey To A Prehistoric World journeys 200m years back in time to explore some of the giant dinosaurs from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods.

Pascal Vuong and Ronan Chapalain wrote and directed the film, which took four years to make in consultation with a team of paleontologists led by the National Museum Of Natural History’s Dr Nathalie Bardet.

“By combining breathtaking CGI, special effects and live-action shots as never-before seen at IMAX theatres, we have managed to recreate ultra-photorealistic sequences featuring spectacular underwater and above-the-surface scenes with no fewer than 23 prehistoric marine reptile species in action,” the filmmakers said.

“Audiences of all ages will be immersed in this thrilling prehistoric experience while enjoying strong scientific content presented in a truly original and entertaining manner.”
