‘SEA’ LIFE IN A WHOLE NEW WAY
Deep Sea 3D to make a big splash beginning March 3, 2006
Newest IMAX® 3D Underwater Film Narrated by Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet
Los Angeles, California, January 23, 2006—Dive in beginning March 3rd when Deep Sea 3D debuts at select IMAX, IMAX 3D and IMAX Dome theatres. Through the magic of IMAX 3D technology, audiences will be transported below the ocean surface to swim with some of the planet’s most unique, dangerous and colorful creatures, from the unusual Wolf Eel to the Giant Pacific Octopus.
Deep Sea 3D brings moviegoers face to face with these underwater inhabitants to witness their peculiar and amazing behavior as they rely on one another for survival. It is directed by world-renowned underwater cinematographer, Howard Hall, produced by Toni Myers and Michele Hall, executive produced by Graeme Ferguson and narrated by Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet, with an original score by Danny Elfman.
“When I put on the IMAX 3D glasses to watch Deep Sea 3D it was like putting on my dive mask,” explains director Howard Hall. “IMAX 3D provides such an immersive experience that you’re able to get up close to the creatures much like I did shooting the film, but without getting wet.”
“Our goal is really to take you on a magical journey underwater to places that most of us have never been”, comments producer Toni Myers. “Even with a large number of people who do scuba dive, lots of them have never met these characters or seen how they interact with other animals. Deep Sea 3D includes moments that Howard himself has never filmed before, even in his long and varied career in undersea photography. These creatures are scary, beautiful, funny—it’s such a vivid illustration of the astonishing array of the diversity of life.”
Deep Sea 3D reunites the dynamic filmmaking team that produced the very first IMAX 3D underwater film Into the Deep 3D, which still delights IMAX audiences to this day. This breakthrough in filmmaking led Howard Hall and his crew to push the envelope once again, diving in multiple locations to profile animals that have never been seen in IMAX 3D before.
