Audiences at the Fernbank Museum of Natural History’s Giant Screen Theater will have the opportunity to dive into the largest and least-explored habitat on Earth with Oceans: Our Blue Planet 3D beginning Friday, June 22, 2018.
Viewers will follow the Alucia, OceanX’s research vessel, on a global odyssey from Antarctica to Egypt in the discovery of never-before-captured footage like deep seafloor methane volcanoes, a close-up of an octopus’ body armor and the clever tusk fish’s cracking of clams.
Directed by Mark Brownlow (Planet Earth: Blue Planet II, Tiny Giants) and Rachel Butler (Great Barrier Reef), Oceans: Our Blue Planet spotlights eighteen exotic species and their environments, from the coastal shallows to deeper, more mysterious worlds.
“It has been an incredible experience to collaborate with BBC Earth on this film, which will give audience members across the world unparalleled access into the world’s oceans and their fascinating inhabitants,” said Mark Dalio, Founder and Creative Director of OceanX Media. “We are thrilled to continue to showcase the complexity and majesty of our oceans, and to inspire the next generation of ocean pioneers, researchers, and explorers.”
As audiences uncover a spectacular world of life beneath the waves in Oceans: Our Blue Planet, narrator Kate Winslet (Titanic, The Reader, Revolutionary Road, Steve Jobs) gives voice to the new ocean science and technology allowing filmmakers to go further into the unknown than ever before.
Oceans: Our Blue Planet 3D will show daily at Fernbank Museum’s Giant Screen Theater from June 22 through Nov. 1, 2018. Giant Screen Theater tickets are $13 for adults, $12 for seniors, $11 for children and $8 for Museum members. Save on movies with the purchase of a Value Pass combination ticket, offering the movie and museum admission for $21-$25.
