Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure

Sea Monsters poster

Accompany a team of paleontologists as they work to solve an 82-million-year-old mystery in this giant-screen film. Photo-realistic, computer-generated animation transports audiences back to the late Cretaceous period, when a great inland ocean divided North America in two. "Sea Monsters" weaves together a series of paleontological digs from around the globe in a compelling story about scientists working as prehistoric detectives to answer questions about this ancient and mysterious ocean world. Viewers accompany modern and historical paleontologists to remote locations as they excavate the remains of some of the most awe-inspiring creatures of all time.
