National Geographic Entertainment’s Cinema Ventures has acquired “Flying Monsters 3D” for release next year.
“Monsters,” from Atlantic Productions in association with Sky 3D, centers on a prehistoric world inhabited by pterosaurs — flying vertebrates with a wingspan of up to 45 feet that lived alongside dinosaurs. It’s produced by Anthony Geffen and narrated by David Attenborough.
National Geographic said the film, applying the same 3D CGI technology used in “Avatar,” explores details about pterosaurs, such as showing they might have flown from birth and figuring out how a creature the size of a giraffe could possibly fly.
National Geographic produced and released in 3D and 2D “Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure.” The company noted that “Monsters” was the first original giant screen film to release simultaneously in Imax and digital 3D theaters.
Geffen also produced and directed the giant screen National Geographic film “The Wildest Dream: Conquest of Everest.”
