The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope.

Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul.

It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter) steps forward and – armed with a pumpkin and a few mice – changes Cinderella’s life forever.

Journey to Space 3D is Exempt from Classification*

Through visually stunning imagery, and in collaboration with leading space experts, Journey to Space showcases the exciting plans NASA and the space community are working on and the challenges they must overcome to carry out missions, once considered science fiction, and now science fact - a manned mission to Mars. Journey to Space is a celebration of space exploration, a tribute to international cooperation in space research and a vision toward our near-term future beyond Earth’s orbit – within a generation.  

The film is a capstone space film, building on the groundbreaking and seminal IMAX space productions of the past 30 years—films that are themselves a part of our proud history in space, beautifully and inspiringly chronicling the space shuttle orbiter program. Journey to Space recognizes these accolades in the context of our future in space, what we’ve learned, and how to apply this knowledge to deep space missions. 

The film takes audiences on a behind-the-scenes tour of the international effort to send astronauts to Mars within the next 20 years, culminating in a virtual voyage to the Red Planet.  Dazzling and meticulous computer imagery from Frima Studios depicts the Orion spacecraft, habitats, landers, vehicles and rockets necessary to achieve interplanetary travel, touchdown and colonization.

Rocky Mountain Express is Exempt from Classification*

Rocky Mountain Express has been captured entirely on stunning ultra high resolution 65mm IMAX Film Cameras and is presented on our IMAX 1570 Film projection system, delivering what is simply the most breathtaking cinematic experience available; and one not be missed.

Rocky Mountain Express propels audiences on a steam train journey through the breathtaking vistas of the Canadian Rockies and highlights the adventure of building a nearly impossible transcontinental railway.
 
Recruited to realize this venture—one of the greatest engineering feats of all time—were engineers and laborers from around the world. The challenge was immense, and the costs were high - almost every mile of track claimed its share of human life...
 
The film weaves together spectacular IMAX aerial cinematography, archival photographs and maps, and the potent energy and rhythms of a live steam locomotive to immerse audiences in this remarkable story from the age of steam.

The Canadian Pacific Railway started in the mid-nineteenth Century as a dream: a ribbon of steel that would stretch across the North American continent, through thousands of miles of sparsely inhabited wilderness and then, through three mountain ranges to reach a remote colonial outpost on the Pacific coast - Read More

The next generation of IMAX movie experience…

From 27th January to 11th March 2015, IMAX Melbourne Museum will be closed for stage two of a  three stage  multi-million dollar investment project that furthers our commitment to providing Melbourne with an unrivalled premium cinema experience.

This temporary closure will see the installation of new theatre seats, new theatre and foyer carpets and new step tread lighting on the theatre stairs. New seats will be equipped with an innovative foam-based seating technology; Probax®, that will assist audiences to maintain better seating posture, enhancing their comfort during their cinema experience. IMAX Melbourne will be the first venue in Australia to install seating technology of this kind.

Another change to seating will be the addition of 25 ‘Premium Blue’ VIP seats at the back of the theatre. In addition to Probax® technology, the 'Premium Blue' seats will be wider with increased leg room and feature both 'Active Tilt' backrests and an electric foot rest for extra comfort. 

Phase 3 works will occur in late 2015 and include the installation of IMAX’s next generation 4K Laser Light Engine Digital Projection System.  Key readiness works for this Laser Projection System will be undertaken during the Phase 2 closure, and include the installation of IMAX’s new Immersive Audio Sound System, which will add additional speaker channels to the roof and theatre walls. This new sound system will be fully commissioned as part of Phase 3 works.

IMAX Melbourne Museum will reopen on March 12, 2015 with the release of Journey To Space 3D, The Wizard of Oz 3D, and Chappie.  We invite you to join us at this time and be one of the first to enjoy our newly refurbished theatre.

In the Heart of the Sea will be presented in IMAX DIGITAL

Oscar winner Ron Howard (“A Beautiful Mind”) directs the action adventure “In the Heart of the Sea,” based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex.
 
In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance.  The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick.  But that told only half the story.  “In the Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive.  Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.
 
“In the Heart of the Sea” stars Chris Hemsworth (“The Avengers,” “Rush”) as the vessel’s veteran first mate Owen Chase; Benjamin Walker (“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”) as its inexperienced Captain, George Pollard; Cillian Murphy (“The Dark Knight Rises”) as second mate Matthew Joy; and Ben Whishaw (“Skyfall”) as novelist Herman Melville, whose inquiries into the event 30 years later helped bring the story to light.Tom Holland (“The Impossible”) also stars as young seaman Tom Nickerson, and Brendan Gleeson (“Edge of Tomorrow”) as the same man, 30 years later.  Spanish actor Jordi Mollà (“Riddick”) is the captain of another ship, the Archimedes, who tries to warn the Essex of what may lie ahead.

The IMAX release of In the Heart of the Sea will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

Pandas 3D: The Journey Home will be presented in IMAX DIGITAL

After thriving for 8 million years in the high bamboo forests of mountainous western China, it took only a few centuries of human expansion to push the giant panda to the brink of extinction. Yet today, with pandas numbering less than 1,600, there is new hope for the species—thanks to a massive effort by the Chinese government to turn the tide.

Pandas 3D: The Journey Home is a groundbreaking natural-history film that captures for the first time the highly endangered pandas breeding at the Bifengxia Panda Base, and being prepared for release back into the wild at Wolong National Nature Reserve, both in the People’s Republic of China.

The filmmakers were given unrivaled access to the Wolong National Nature Reserve with the support of the Chinese Wildlife Conservation Association and the China Conservation and Research Centre for the Giant Panda. The film invites audiences to witness the birth, nursery care and teaching of panda cubs—all part of an extraordinary effort to save the panda in the wild.

Pandas 3D: The Journey Home follows the pandas at what could be a make-or-break milestone in their history and in the history of conservation itself. After decades of successful captive breeding, the reserve has hit its target number of 300 giant pandas and now must tackle the challenge of reintroducing breeding populations of the species to the wild.

“Pandas aren’t hopeless animals that deserve to go extinct,” Producer Caroline Hawkins says. “They are actually incredibly complex and fascinating creatures. Not only will ‘Pandas: The Journey Home’ show audiences the strides that have been made toward saving the panda in the wild, but it will also help them better understand and appreciate these iconic, beloved and charismatic creatures. They are more than just cute and cuddly animals to see in the zoo. They have a place in the wild and in the ecosystem.”

*HIGH FRAME RATE (48FPS)**

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.

As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

** What is High Frame Rate 3D (HFR 3D)?
Frame rates are the number of images (or frames) displayed by a projector in one second. 24 frames per second (fps) is the current standard in cinemas (including IMAX) worldwide. HFR 3D is another format option that presents the movie in 48 frames per second (fps), which is reported to be closer to what the human eye can actually see. This format was available for the first Hobbit movie released 2012 and IMAX Melbourne screened the second Hobbit installment in 2013 which proved far more popular than the non-HFR 1570 presentation. Because of this, the third and final installment will only be screening in HFR 3D.

Ok then, we'd like to state from the absolute outset the following fact that should come as no surprise - we LOVE Chris Nolan. Yes we love the fact that his films do so well in IMAX, but aside from that minor (ahem) point, what truly excites us is his dedication to shooting on film and his passion for shooting major scenes using IMAX cameras. Mr Nolan creates what is simply the greatest visual cinema experience that one can have in this day & age. Think about the first time you saw the opening set piece for The Dark Knight or The Dark Knight Rises - absolutely goose-bump inducing stuff my friends, in fact we cannot even tell you how many times we escaped from the offices down to the theatre to watch those opening scenes again and again, such was the impact. When was the last time you watched INCEPTION? Ok, it's not shot with IMAX cameras, but the film is a both a visual and mental masterpiece - a thinking man's (or woman's) block buster that translates so well onto the giant IMAX screen.

It's exactly these experiences that make us revere Chris Nolan so much, and why we are so excited about his forthcoming INTERSTELLAR in November. But if you can't quite wait that long then we have a your Chris Nolan big screen fix sorted with the following Chris Nolan IMAX films screening in the lead up to INTERSTELLAR and all on glorious IMAX 1570 Film!

Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora.

Exclusively in IMAX® theatres, the major sequences will expand to fill more of the IMAX screen*, providing moviegoers with even greater scope, breathtaking image quality and stunningly immersive 3D visuals, for a truly unrivalled cinema experience.

Director James Gunn - 'As an exra benefit for those who see the film in IMAX 3D, we will be changing the aspect ratios throughout the film in a way that makes the experience even fuller and more encompassing. I've personally chosen all the places where the changes occur and I love how it's coming along. The changing aspect ratios in this case are actually part of the storytelling.'

CLICK HERE to watch Director James Gunn talking about why you need to see Guardians of the Galaxy in IMAX 3D.

An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

*Select key sequences will be presented in a 1.9:1 aspect ratio (the ratio of the image width to the image height) rather than the 2.40:1 for the conventional release. This aspect ratio is optimised to take advantage of the taller IMAX screen (with the on-screen image height expanding from approx. 11m to 15m) - offering moviegoers 26% more of the image than standard cinemas.

Filmed for the first time in 3D and for the giant screen, JERUSALEM immerses audiences into one of the world's most beloved cities. Discover why this tiny piece of land is sacred to three major religions through the stories of Jewish, Christian and Muslim families who call Jerusalem home. Join renowned archaeologist, Dr. Jodi Magness, as she travels underground to solve some of this city’s greatest mysteries.
 
Find out why, after thousands of years, Jerusalem and the Holy Land continue to stir the imagination of billions of people. Unprecedented access to the city's holiest sites, as well as rare and breathtaking aerial footage of the Old City and the Holy Land, combine to make JERUSALEM a unique and stunning cinematic experience.

Film Makers Statement
Jerusalem stirs passions so deep and its role in Western civilization is so pivotal that we as filmmakers felt moved to bring this city to the world through the beauty and power of the giant screen.

'Our goal is to look at the roots of the universal attachment to Jerusalem: Jewish, Christian and Muslim. We hope the juxtaposition of these different religions and cultures – all with profound spiritual and historical connections to the city – will reveal how much Jews, Christians and Muslims have in common and inspire all of us to better understand each other.
 
Our film is not about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It embraces the idea that Jerusalem is many cities: imagined and real; past and present; Jewish, Christian, Muslim and secular. We are trying to answer the question: Why Jerusalem? What is it about this tiny space that made it the ultimate prize of empires and the object of longing for so many different cultures over thousands of years?
 
We believe that the power of the images and stories in JERUSALEM will allow our audience a unique window into the lives of others. Every stone in Jerusalem has many stories. It is the collective power of all these stories that makes the city so endearing to billions of people.
 
- Producers Taran Davies, George Duffield, & Daniel Ferguson

The epic action of Edge of Tomorrow unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.
 
Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again.
 
But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield).  For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone).  But being Spider-Man comes at a price:  only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city.  With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he.  And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realise that all of his enemies have one thing in common:  Oscorp.

Unseen World 3D takes audiences on an almost unbelievable journey into unseen worlds and hidden dimensions beyond our normal vision to uncover the mysteries of things too fast, too slow, too small or simply invisible, revealing phenomena  secreted away in different dimensions of time and scale.

Experience events that unfold too slowly for human perception; "see” the beauty, drama, and even humor of phenomena that occur in the flash of a microsecond; enter a microscopic world once reserved for scientists, but now made accessible to the rest of us; and begin to understand that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is to see on Earth.

High-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology are just a few of the advancements that allow us to see a universe of things, events, creatures, and processes we never even knew existed. These technologies give us new “superpowers” to see beyond what's in front of us.

Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research, Unseen World 3D will leave audiences in thrall as they begin to understand the enormity of the world they can’t see—a world that exists in the air they breathe, on their bodies, and in all of the events that occur around them minute by minute and nanosecond by nanosecond. And with this understanding comes a new appreciation of the wonder and possibilities of science.

For many years the Monarch Butterfly, beautiful, fragile and a true marvel of nature, lay at the centre of an age old mystery; where did they go when they flew south each year?  As a young boy living near Toronto in the 1920’s, Dr Fred Urquhart wondered this very same thing as he witnessed the beginning of this incredible journey every autumn.  He could never have dreamt that each year, these monarchs joined millions of others on an extraordinary migration south to a remote and distant hideaway, and that this very question would lead him on a 40 year quest to find the answer.

Flight Of The Butterflies documents the largest and most incredible migration on earth; half a billion monarch butterflies traversing a continent and travelling over 5000 kilometers each year to hibernate, mate and lay eggs.  With pinpoint accuracy they navigate across North America and Mexico, following the warm weather and food supply in order to produce the next generation of Monarchs and continue this extraordinary cycle.

From the grassy Texas hills, to the flower gardens of Canada and the mountains of Mexico, soar alongside one of the greatest spectacles of the natural world and join us in amazing IMAX as we follow the Flight Of The Butterflies.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug HFR 3D will be presented in IMAX DIGITAL

*HIGH FRAME RATE (48FPS)**

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” the second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield, on an epic quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.

Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood-elves, the Dwarves journey to Lake-town, and finally to the Lonely Mountain itself, where they must face the greatest danger of all — a creature more terrifying than any other; one which will test not only the depth of their courage but the limits of their friendship and the wisdom of the journey itself — the Dragon Smaug.

The IMAX release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

** What is High Frame Rate 3D (HFR 3D)?
Frame rates are the number of images (or frames) displayed by a projector in one second. 24 frames per second (fps) is the current standard in cinemas (including IMAX) worldwide. HFR 3D is another format option that presents the movie in 48 frames per second (fps),  which is reported to be closer to what the human eye can actually see. This format was available for the first Hobbit movie released last year and received mixed response - some loving and other loathing it (we encourage you to do your own research). Nevertheless, IMAX Melbourne had many requests to screen The Hobbit in HFR 3D hence this format will be available for limited sessions.

Space Station 3D will be presented in IMAX DIGITAL

As astoundingly beautiful as it is technically dazzling, SPACE STATION is the first-ever IMAX 3D space film.  Audiences will travel 220 miles above Earth at 17,500 mph to experience SPACE STATION - the greatest engineering feat since landing a man on the Moon.

SPACE STATION is the story of this unique partnership of 16 nations building a laboratory in outer space -- a permanent facility for the study of the effects of long-duration exposure to zero gravity and the necessary first step towards the global co-operative effort needed if man is to someday set foot on Mars.  It is a story of challenges, setbacks and triumphs…and ultimately, the shared international victory of men and women whose dreams exceed the limits of life on this Earth. 

SPACE STATION is the first cinematic journey to the International Space Station (ISS), where audiences can experience for themselves life in zero gravity aboard the new station.  Transported by the magic of the IMAX® 3D technology, the audience blasts off into space with the astronauts and cosmonauts from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center and Russia’s Baikonur Cosmodrome to rendezvous with their new home in orbit 220 miles above Earth.  Now people of every age and language can work side by side with their space-walking crewmates, building and inhabiting this unprecedented structure in space.

SPACE STATION is produced and directed by Toni Myers and narrated by Tom Cruise.  The Director of Photography and Astronaut Training is James Neihouse.  The music is by Micky Erbe and Maribeth Solomon.  The Associate Producer is Judy Carroll and the Consulting Producer is Graeme Ferguson.

The BIGGEST BAND, The BIGGEST SCREEN - 3D HAS NEVER FELT THIS HEAVY!

"IMAX! It doesn't get bigger or cooler than that!" said Lars Ulrich who formed Metallica in 1981 together with James Hetfield. "For four guys in a rock band of average height, to get a chance to unleash their 3D film on IMAX screens the size of buildings across the country is a mind-blowing thought. 'Hey look, Mom, I'm 50 feet tall (finally!)' There is no better way to experience film and when you throw in the spectacle of music and sound this should amount to an unprecedented, unique and truly next level experience."

 Starring Metallica, a cast of thousands of their fans and breakout star Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Metallica Through the Never is written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal (Predators, Kontroll) and produced by former IMAX film producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth). The film marries groundbreaking footage and editing techniques with a compelling narrative, in which a band crew member (played by DeHaan) is sent out on a mission during Metallica's roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. While on this mission, he unexpectedly has his life turned completely upside down.

The IMAX release of Metallica Through the Never will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

"(Gravity) offers the kind of theoretically game-changing theatrical experience that absolutely demands theatrical viewing on the biggest 3D IMAX screen you can find.... I cannot imagine a more fantastic and thrilling movie going experience." - Scott Mendleson, Forbes magazine

"An awe-inspiring achievement, a towering slice of cinematic splendour that astounds and terrifies in equal measure." - Jordan Farley, SFX Magazine

"This isn't just the best-looking film of the year, it's one of the most awe-inspiring achievements in the history of special-effects cinema." - Tom Huddleston, Time Out

Academy Award® winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star in “Gravity,” a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space.  The film was directed by Oscar® nominee Alfonso Cuarón (“Children of Men”). Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring.  But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes.  The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone—tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness.

The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue.  As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

The IMAX release of Gravity will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

Great White Shark 3D will be presented in IMAX 1570 FILM

Great White Shark 3D take you up close and personal with the world's most iconic predator! Great White Shark, a new large format film, unravels the mystery of the creature we love to fear — the much maligned, misrepresented and misunderstood great white shark — and goes to the depths of human daring to tell the true story of its role atop the oceanic food chain.  

Three years in the making, Great White Shark takes viewers around the world to great white hotspots: the crystal clear waters of Mexico’s legendary Guadalupe Island; newly-discovered shark territory around Stewart Island off the southernmost tip of New Zealand; the bone-chilling waters of South Africa’s “flying” great whites; and finally to the California coast near heavily-populated Los Angeles. The film examines what we know about these incredible animals through the eyes of several people whose lives and work have become inextricably linked to the great white.   Using revolutionary high-speed, digital IMAX cameras in South Africa, filmmakers captured the great white breaching for the first time in 3D.

“Our mission is to change people’s attitudes toward the great white” said Steve McNicholas, co-director of the film. “It’s not the menacing, evil predator it’s made out to be. It’s simply performing its crucial role at the top of the ocean’s food chain. Great whites are not monsters any more than the polar bears or lions that we revere.”

In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined planet. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.

Elysium is writer and director Neill Blomkamp's second feature film following the break-out success of District 9 released in 2009.
