Flight of the Butterflies

Lately IMAX screens have been dominated by blockbusters like The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man (or the current re-release of Raiders of the Lost Ark), but awhile back, nature documentaries with stunning cinematography used to dominate the giant screen. Now nature is making a bit of a resurgence as Flight of the Butterflies in 3D is making its way to theaters this October. A simple trailer is here, and let's the images speak for themselves as director Mike Slee filmed hundreds of millions of monarchs in their remote overwintering sanctuaries in Mexico and cross-continent migratory routes. Enjoy!

Here's the trailer for Mike Slee's Flight of the Butterflies in 3D, originally from Yahoo:

Following the year-long annual migration cycle of the butterflies, the award-winning production team filmed hundreds of millions of monarchs in their remote overwintering sanctuaries in Mexico in 2011 and again in 2012 and also along their migratory routes from Canada, across the U.S. and into Mexico. The technology of IMAX immerses you in the astounding migration experience as two generations of the butterflies migrate north and then a Super Generation miraculously finds its way from Canada to a few isolated mountaintops in Mexico in Flight of the Butterflies coming to IMAX screens in 3D on October 1st.
