Penguins 3D
A Tale of Love and Survival in Penguin City.

Narrated by David Attenborough, Penguins 3D celebrates the destiny of a very special King Penguin, who returns to his birthplace in the sub-Antarctic. Known as Penguin City, the island is home to hundreds of albatrosses, fur seals and brawling elephant seals—as well as six million penguins! Somehow our hero must earn his place among the island inhabitants and fulfill his destiny by finding a mate and raising a family.

"Penguins 3D" is a presentation of nWave Pictures Distribution and Serengeti Entertainment. Written and narrated by David Attenborough, the film is produced by Anthony Geffen & Sias Wilson, and features cinematography by Simon Niblett and original music by James Edward Baker.


Mummies 3D
"Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs 3D" brings to life ancient wonders, historic intrigue and a modern-day forensic adventure, all in one eye-popping new film. Why are people endlessly fascinated with mummies? The worldwide curiosity about mummification is an age-old phenomenon as enduring as mummies themselves. During Egypt’s history, literally millions of mummies were made. In "Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs," filmgoers will marvel at the sight of these human time capsules, shown in larger-than-life detail on the giant screen.

The Last Reef 3D
Fly across iridescent tropical reefs, brush through a cloud of a million jellyfish, visit an alien world where the closer you look, the more you see, where the tiniest creatures support the greatest predators. We think of reefs as exotic, distant places with little or no connection to our everyday world. Yet every reef is a living city beneath the sea with a parallel existence to ours, distant yet undeniably connected. Reefs are hotspots of biodiversity as vital to life on earth as the rain-forests. They have been shaping our shorelines, literally forming islands and mountains, for millions of years. The fossil record shows that given time they have recovered from all of earth's major extinction events. Even reefs pulverized by atomic blasts at Bikini Atoll have regenerated. Yet within our lifetime reefs have come to face their greatest threat.

Misrepresented, maligned and misunderstood, the Great White Shark is an iconic predator: the creature we love to fear. Great White Shark 3D will explore the Great White’s place in our imaginations, in our fears, and in the reality of its role at the top of the oceanic food chain. Great White Shark 3D aims to reveal the strength and beauty of these animals by looking through the eyes of those who have been touched by their shark encounters- Mike Rutzen, South African shark operator, who swims with Great Whites in the aptly named Shark Alley, Dr. Chris Lowe who has been tagging juvenile white sharks off the coast of Los Angeles, revealing more and more of their secret life, and two record breaking free-divers, Frederic Buyle and William Winram, who tag Great Whites by simply holding their breath and free diving with the sharks.
