Under the Sea is Warner’s next IMAX 3D film


MUMBAI: Warner Bros. and IMAX Corporation announced that the official title of their third original IMAX 3D co-production will be Under the Sea 3D. Production began last month in Papua, New Guinea, where the film crew is photographing some of the most extraordinary marine wildlife ever captured on film.


Slated for release in February 2009, Under the Sea 3D (previous working title, Deep Seaquel) will offer a uniquely inspirational and entertaining way to explore the impact that global climate change has had on ocean wilderness. Moviegoers will be able to experience face-to-face encounters with some of the most mysterious and stunning creatures of the sea. In IMAX 3D, the images literally leap off the screen and float around the theatre, putting the audience IN the movie.


“We’re very excited about this film,” said Warner Bros. president and COO Alan Horn. “In addition to bringing some of the most exotic underwater creatures to light for the first time, Under the Sea 3D will also thoughtfully explore the effects of global warming on our oceans and their wildlife. We’re proud to be a part of this important production that will both fascinate and enlighten audiences.”


“We are thrilled production is underway for Under the Sea 3D, and we are delighted to expand our original IMAX 3D library with another project from the talented filmmaking team behind Deep Sea 3D,” said Warner Bros. Pictures president, domestic distribution Dan Fellman. “Moviegoers are continuing to buy tickets to Deep Sea 3D, demonstrating the strong appeal of this subject matter when combined with the immersive nature of IMAX’s format.”
