Dinosaurs Alive!

Computer generated image of Tarchia and Tarbosaurus in combat in the Gobi Desert of the Cretaceous period 80 million.

Follow in the footsteps of "Women of Discovery Earth Award" winner Boldra Minjin, as she and a team of paleontologists explore Mongolia's Gobi Desert to uncover some of the greatest dinosaur fossils ever found. "Dinosaurs Alive" is a new IMAX® adventure of science and discovery. It features "reincarnated" life-sizes, from the earliest dinosaurs of the Triassic Period to the monsters of the Cretaceous Period. One of the most dramatic sequences in the film features a Velociraptor and a Protoceratops locked in mortal combat as a sand dune sweeps over them and kills them. The fossil of these fighting dinosaurs shows that they died in a deadly embrace, claws and jaws still grasping at each other. Through the magic of scientifically accurate computer-generated animation, these newly discovered creatures, and some familiar favorites, will come alive...in a big way!
