Walking With Dinosaurs Trailer Shows Dinos On The Move
This Christmas, 20th Century Fox and Reliance Entertainment will bring Walking with Dinosaurs into theaters, a 3D film that promises to let viewers truly see and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. I'm guessing cold and scary. What sets the latest trailer apart from the international trailer released earlier this month is the narration. The 2-minute international trailer is narrated by an omniscient trailer voice, while this new one puts us into the mind of the lead character, a dinosaur traveling with his family to find a new home.
There's a bit of a Land Before Time quality to the story, in its mentioned focus on dinosaurs in search for a place that's presumably more habitable than wherever they were, but the 3D animation jumps out at us as one of the key features in this new dinosaur story. And from what we've seen so far, these dinosaurs don't appear to talk to one another. The lead character's narration in the trailer may be a clue that this is going to be a very visual story, much of which is told through the animation, added to the frequent sound of dinosaurs roaring. Beyond that, it looks like Walking with Dinosaurs is a story about family (and herds), growing up, leadership and survival. And dinosaurs. Lots of dinosaurs! From what both trailers reveal, this movie looks like it could be a really great 3D experience for movie-goers.
Set to arrive in theaters December 20, Walking with Dinosaurs 3D is based on a BBC series and is directed by Neil Nightingale and Pierre De Lespinios. This movie comes in about half a year before Pixar's The Good Dinosaur is scheduled to arrive in theaters, and well ahead of the likely-less kid-friendly Jurassic Park IV.
