National Geographic, Sea Monsters

Journey 80 million years back in time to an age when mighty dinosaurs dominated the land - and an equally astonishing assortment of ferocious creatures swam, hunted, and fought for survival beneath the vast, mysterious prehistoric seas.

Stunning, photorealistic imagery re-creates the perilous underwater realm of two young, dolphin- sized marine reptiles called Dolichorhynchops, or Dollies, and follows their incredible journey through waters ruled by some of the most awesome predators ever to prowl the Earths oceans.

Interweaving ground-breaking fossil finds from around the globe with cutting- edge computer-generated re-creations, National Geographics powerful storytelling immerses you in the life-or-death drama of an age when monsters ruled the seas!

With original music by Peter Gabriel and The Footnote, and narrated by Liev Schreiber. Seen originally in IMAX and other specialty theaters.

For nearly 200 million years while dinosaurs roamed the Earth, the seas teemed with some of the most awe-inspiring ocean creatures of all time. Sea Monsters, a National Geographic Giant Screen film, is an entertaining journey into prehistoric oceans. Inter-cutting between the animated story and the reenactments of fossil discoveries combine the appeal of Indiana Jones with the CGI that brings these prehistoric monsters to life.

This 40-minute special explores the less-familiar world of the prehistoric oceans, filled with predatory Platecarpi, gentle Protostegas, and cold-eyed Xiphactini. The story follows a newborn Dolichorhynchops (a short-necked plesiosaur that looks a little like a dolphin crossed with the Loch Ness Monster) as she matures into adolescence and adulthood, surviving encounters with sharks and the fearsome Tylosaurus, who's sort of the T-Rex of the deep. Juxtaposed with these vivid CGI recreations are staged depictions of paleontological digs throughout the 20th century that unveiled the bones of these ancient deep-sea beasties. It's irrefutable: Dinosaurs are compulsively fun to learn about, and the prehistoric creatures of the ocean are no exception.
