Stunning photo-realistic CGA transports audiences back to the Late Cretaceous, when a great inland sea divided North America in two. The film follows a curious and adventurous dolichorhynchops – familiarly known as a ‘dolly’ – as she travels through the most dangerous oceans in history. Along the way, she encounters long-necked plesiosaurs, giant turtles, enormous fish, fierce sharks, and the most dangerous sea monsters of all, the mosasaur.

This film weaves together a series of paleontological digs from around the globe in a compelling story about scientists working as detectives to answer questions about this ancient and mysterious ocean world. Viewers accompany modern and historical fossil hunters to remote locations as they excavate the remains of some of the most awe-inspiring creatures of all time, unearthing discoveries which shed light on exactly what happened to the film’s incredible cast of characters.

A film produced by Lisa Truitt and Jini Durr.

Funded in part through a grant from the National Science Foundation, the film features the nuanced narration of Tony Award-winning actor Liev Schreiber and an awe-inspiring original score by longtime musical collaborators Richard Evans, David Rhodes and Peter Gabriel. In Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure, National Geographic’s trademark authenticity combines with innovative imagery, powerful storytelling, and the experiential nature of giant-screen and specialty 3D theaters to immerse audiences in an unforgettable experience.
