nWave Pictures Distribution Explores the Enchanted Galapagos Islands in New 3D IMAX Theatre Film

January 23, 2014 – 12:27 pm | Permalink

“Galapagos: Nature’s Wonderland” written by David Attenborough and produced by Anthony Geffen to be launched next month at Montreal Science Center’s IMAX(r) TELUS Cinema, Houston Museum of Natural Science and Tycho Brahe Planetarium in Copenhagen

Brussels (Belgium) and Burbank (Calif.) January 23, 2014 – nWave Pictures announces the February 2014 release of its new film “Galapagos: Nature’s Wonderland” at IMAX(r) Theatres and Digital 3D Cinemas in North America and Europe. A presentation of Colossus Productions in association with SKY 3D, and distributed exclusively worldwide by nWave Pictures Distribution, the 40-minute film is written by renowned naturalist David Attenborough, produced by Anthony Geffen and directed by Martin Williams. “Galapagos: Nature’s Wonderland” explores the Galapagos archipelago with its remarkable collection of unique plants and charismatic animals, filmed for the very first time in 4K 3D using revolutionary digital filmmaking technology.

The film is scheduled to premiere at the following theaters this spring:

February 8: Tycho Brahe Planetariet, Copenhagen (Denmark)
February 10: Montreal Science Center’s IMAX(r) TELUS 3D Cinema, Montreal QC (Canada)
February 15: Houston Museum of Natural Science, Houston TX (USA)
March 14: Planetario Alfa, Garza Garcia/Monterrey (Mexico)
March 30: Malecon 2000 Foundation IMAX(r) Theatre, Guayaquil (Ecuador)
May 24: Tennessee Aquarium IMAX(r) 3D Theatre, Chattanooga TN (USA)
May 24: Moody Gardens MG 3D Theatre, Galveston TX (USA)
Coming Soon: Arizona Science Center IMAX(r) 3D Theatre, Phoenix AZ (USA)
Coming Soon: Hanwha Hotels & Resorts 63 IMAX(r) Theatre, Seoul (South Korea)

Additional theaters will be added as the footprint expands domestically and internationally over the coming months, with the Asian premiere set for April at the 4th Beijing International Film Festival held in association with the China National Science and Technology Museum.

The film’s official website is http://Galapagos.nWave.com

The trailer of “Galapagos: Nature’s Wonderland” can be seen on nWave’s YouTube channel at http://www.YouTube.com/nWavePictures

The poster image and production stills can be downloaded from the film’s IMDB profile at: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3431900

Eric Dillens, Chairman of nWave Studios, said, “‘Galapagos: Nature’s Wonderland’ showcases our commitment, working with creative filmmakers like David Attenborough and Anthony Geffen, to bring visually compelling stories to the giant screen cinema industry. There is no doubt the film will foster greater understanding of a fascinating biological treasure: an archipelago which is home to some 9,000 species, of which 80% of the land-dwelling population is indigenous.”

“Galapagos: Nature’s Wonderland” takes audiences to a paradise unlike any other. Located close to the equator in the Pacific Ocean, these remote volcanic islands have developed over millions of years in relative isolation. The result is a living museum of nature, with an abundance of curious plant and animal species that have adapted to thrive in this unique and challenging environment. Giant half-ton long-necked tortoises lumber among dancing blue-footed boobies and flightless cormorants. Penguins living thousands of miles from their natural habitats share the seas with unique marine iguanas that spit sea-salt. This is a story of discovery, of survival against the odds, and of nature’s ingenuity.

“Galapagos: Nature’s Wonderland” was filmed on location over a ten-month period, followed by five months of post-production. Using breakthrough lightweight digital 3D filmmaking technologies and featuring 4K ultra-high resolution imagery, the producers have brought the extraordinary world of the Galapagos to the giant screen in a way that has not been possible before. The Galapagos Islands are governed by Ecuador and lie some 600 miles (966 Km) from the coast of South America.

Legendary Broadcast Journalist Tom Brokaw to Narrate IMAX® Theater Film “D-Day: Normandy 1944″

January 20, 2014 – 3:30 pm | Permalink

3D Entertainment Distribution To Release Film Worldwide As Of March 2014

LOS ANGELES and PARIS and LONDON, Jan. 20, 2014 — LOS ANGELES and PARIS and LONDON, Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — 3D Entertainment Distribution announced today that legendary journalist and author Tom Brokaw will narrate “D-Day: Normandy 1944,” written and directed by Pascal Vuong and produced by N3D LAND Films. The 40-minute film brings a new perspective to a monumental event in history that changed the world. It is slated for a staggered release worldwide in 3D and 2D, 15-perf./70-mm film and digital formats beginning in March 2014.

“What I was drawn to in this exceptional giant screen film is that it tells the story of D-Day in a manner that gives such clarity to one of the most important events in the history of mankind,” said Brokaw. “By using digital technology, as well as stunning live-action images, audiences have an idea of the geography involved, the personalities involved, and it will allow a new generation a chance to understand it in a way they would not with traditional, grainy black & white footage. Upon seeing the initial few minutes of the film at the IMAX® theater, I found it irresistible.”

A well-respected and trusted figure in US broadcast journalism, Brokaw is best known as the managing editor and unique anchor of NBC News. In this role, he produced and reported documentaries and extended expertise in breaking news events and election coverage. During this time, he was credited for his work in various film and television appearances, radio broadcasts, and several bestselling books, including “The Greatest Generation” and “The Greatest Generation Speaks.” Brokaw has also won every major broadcast journalism award, including a Peabody Award, two DuPonts, and several Emmys. He is also recognized for his charity work.

“We are thrilled to be working with such an iconic journalist as Tom Brokaw, who is also known for his strong passion and interest in preserving the stories of those who participated in and were affected by World War II,” said director Pascal Vuong. “He is, without question, the perfect voice for ‘D-Day: Normandy 1944.'”

D-Day itself is a well-known event, yet only a few know in detail exactly why and how, from the end of 1943 until August 1944, Normandy became the most important location in the world. The 70th anniversary of D-Day will be marked by national and local commemorations on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as in Asia and Australia. “D-Day: Normandy 1944″ is dedicated to the millions of men and women, soldiers and civilians, who gave their lives in this battle for freedom.

The official trailer is available at www.DDay-Normandy1944.com
