Under the Sea 3D
In early 2009, IMAX® released its latest 3D creation, Under the Sea 3D. Moviegoers will be transported to some of the most exotic and isolated undersea locations on Earth, including Southern Australia, New Guinea and others in the Indo-Pacific region, allowing them to experience face-to-face encounters with some of the most mysterious and stunning creatures of the sea. It will offer a uniquely inspirational and entertaining way to explore the impact that global climate change has had on ocean wilderness. In IMAX 3D, the images literally leap off the screen and float around the theatre, putting the audience “in” the movie.
Under the Sea 3D is the third IMAX 3D co-production between Warner Bros. Pictures Inc. and IMAX Corporation. The film is a “sea-quel,” so to speak, to IMAX’s Deep Sea 3D, which is still out in theaters and just crossed the $60 million mark.
The documentary will be narrated by Jim Carrey. “Jim Carrey is a favorite of film audiences everywhere and of every generation, so he is the perfect choice to narrate this undersea adventure for moviegoers of all ages,” said Dan Fellman of Warner Bros. Pictures. “His voice will draw people into this world of mysterious creatures and dazzling colors,” added Greg Foster of IMAX Filmed Entertainment.
Under the Sea 3D is filmed by award-winning director/cinematographer Howard Hall, produced by Toni Myers, executive produced by Graeme Ferguson, and produced for Howard Hall Productions by Michele Hall. In addition to the 2006 release of Deep Sea 3D, Hall, Ferguson and Myers were all part of the accomplished filmmaking team behind IMAX’s first underwater 3D adventure, Into the Deep, which has grossed more than $70 million since its 1991 release.
