If you head down to your local IMAX theater chances are overwhelming that you’ll be greeted to Christopher Nolan‘s final entry into the Batman series, The Dark Knight Rises. But before long, it looks like our favorite bat is set to get replaced by some butterflies. While I’m sure the new nature documentary Flight of the Butterflies will only be at a select number of these large-format screens, its nice to see the chain have a balance of blockbusters and nature films.
This one sees director Mike Slee track the migration patterns of hundreds of millions of monarchs Mexico, Canada and thoughtout the US., which should prove to be a beautiful, eductional time at the movies. Check out the trailer and poster below via First Showing and more information on the official site.
It’s a natural history epic. It’s a compelling detective story. It’s a scientific adventure at its best. It took Dr. Fred Urquhart almost 40 years to discover the monarch butterflies’ secret hideaway and prove the most incredible migration on Earth. Following the year-long annual migration cycle of the butterflies, the award-winning production team filmed hundreds of millions of monarchs in their remote overwintering sanctuaries in Mexico in 2011 and again in 2012 and also along their migratory routes from Canada, across the U.S. and into Mexico. The technology of IMAX® immerses you in the astounding migration experience as two generations of the butterflies migrate north and then a Super Generation miraculously finds its way from Canada to a few isolated mountaintops in Mexico – to a place it has never been!

Grand Piano is a film that is so masterfully done that it seems silly one would ever have doubts that the story could be pulled off. Much of that has to do with the work of the blossoming director Eugenio Mira, who actually created animatics of the film to get everyone on the same page. Starring Elijah Wood as [...]
