Flying Monsters 3D

Now Showing - General Audience

More than 220 million years ago, dinosaurs were beginning their domination of Earth. But another group of reptiles was about to make an extraordinary leap as pterosaurs were taking control of the skies. The story of how and why these mysterious creatures took to the air is more fantastical than any fiction — and one of the greatest mysteries in paleontology. How did lizards the size of giraffes defy gravity and soar through prehistoric skies?

Driven by the information he finds as he attempts to answer these questions, veteran filmmaker and renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough starts to unravel one of science's more enduring mysteries, discovering that the marvel of pterosaur flight has evolutionary echoes that resonate even today.

Applying the same state-of-the-art 3D CGI technology that was used in Avatar, Flying Monsters 3D also employs pioneering scientific techniques that reveal new details about pterosaurs. From discovering pterosaur embryos that show they might have flown from birth to figuring out how a creature the size of a giraffe could possibly fly, Flying Monsters 3D will resolve mysteries that have intrigued scientists for more than two centuries.
