The IMAX adventure feature T-REX: Back to the Cretaceous, showcases a break-through for IMAX and IMAX 3D technology. Photo-realistic, 3D stereoscopic dinosaurs are brought to life, incorporating the most up-to-date scientific knowledge about the creatures from the deep past of more than 65 million years ago.
The film features the visual special effects wizardry of Blue Sky / VIFX under the guidance and supervision of L-Squared Entertainment. Many of the three-dimensional effects appear to exist not only in the film frame but also in the area in front of the movie IMAX 3D movie screen, even closer to the audience for a thoroughly immersive IMAX Experience.
Live-action portions of the film were shot on location on the sweeping plains of Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta, Canada, and in the Olympia rain forest region in the State of Washington. The filmmakers closely collaborated with paleontologists from the Los Angeles County Museum of History, and with Dr. Philip Currie, world-renowned paleontologist and Curator of Dinosaurs at the famed Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology in Canada.
