Pterosaurs Take to the Skies Again In National Geographic’s Stunning Film

Spectacular flying reptiles soar into view in the stunning film “Flying Monsters” narrated by Sir David Attenborough and made by National Geographic. There will be a special screening on Wednesday October 5th at The Liberty Science Centre in New Jersey and the film officially premiers at eight science museums on Friday, the 7th (in Birmingham AL, Hastings NE, Indianapolis ID, Jersey City NJ, Los Angeles CA, Portland OR, and Mexico City NM).   Looks like it is going to be a stunning visual treat for dinosaur fans and enthusiasts of the pterosaurs.

Avatar-like CGI brings to life spectacular-looking colossal creatures that have been extinct for millions of years in this captivating, family-friendly new film, “FLYING MONSTERS 3-D,” the new giant screen film adventure, which premieres in North America beginning October 7th, 2011.  Hosted and written by Sir David Attenborough, this film is produced by award-winning Atlantic Productions, in association with Sky 3-D, and being distributed by National Geographic Cinema Ventures.

The film is already earning accolades—scooping up a 2011 BAFTA and nominated for best 3-D film at the Jackson Hole Film Festival, which will take place next week.

These creatures may seem fanciful, but unlike Avatar, these actually were real and did exist — and it’s hard to believe they dominated the skies for millions of years!

You will be astonished by the sheer size and variety of these colossal creatures captured in spectacular, larger-than-life immersive 3-D experience.  These are not your run-of-the-mill pterodactyls…. audiences will get to meet amazing creatures like Tapejara and the enormous Quetzalcoatlus.  We suggest that if you are around these museum locations on the day, you make a date with these creatures – the first group of vertebrates to evolve powered flight.
