Chance to Walk with Dinosaurs in Malaysia!

The original Walking with Dinosaurs comprises of a 6-part TV documentary produced by BBC in 1999. Dinosaurs from the Mesozoic Era (252 to 65 million years ago) were brought to life by computer imagery and animatronics, state of the film art of that time such that Walking With Dinosaurs was the most expensive documentary ever made. The highly praised series earned BAFTA and Emmy awards with its narrative style of prehistoric life and has subsequently spawned live show adaptation touring the world.

Now Walking with Dinosaurs comes to life in 3D as a US$85 million family movie coming to cinemas in December 2013. During the Late Cretaceous period 70 million years ago, the Alexornis bird Alex narrates about three Pachyrhinosaurus named Patchi, Scowler, and Juniper who grow from infants into adulthood. Patchi leads the herd in migrating, and they also encounter the predator Gorgon the Gorgosaurus. The production features computer-animated 3D dinosaurs in live-action settings with actors John Leguizamo, Justin Long, Tiya Sircar, and Skyler Stone providing voice-overs for the main characters.

Directed by Barry Cook and Neil Nightingale from a screenplay by John Collee, Walking with Dinosaurs is distributed by Twentieth Century Fox and will be hitting Malaysian cinemas on 19 December 2013 in time for Christmas.
