The underwater IMAX® adventure, Under the Sea, transports moviegoers to some of the most exotic and isolated locations on Earth for face-to-face encounters with mysterious and stunning creatures from the deep. Under the Sea offers a uniquely inspirational and entertaining way to explore the beauty and natural wonder of the oceans, as well as the impact of global climate change upon them. Colorful marine imagery will captivate audiences as they are transported to the waters of South Australia, the Great Barrier Reef and the Coral Triangle islands of Papua New Guinea and Indonesia, all on the Giant Dome screen.

  • This “deep sea-quel” is narrated by Jim Carrey and is brought to you by the same team who brought the acclaimed Deep Sea and Into the Deep to the surface.
  • Filmmakers reveal how delicately fragile this ecosystem is, and audiences can witness what we risk losing if immediate action is not taken to curtail the effects of climate change.
  • Take an intimate look into the daily dramas and comedic creatures of isolated undersea locations and learn how these locations are being threatened.

“Part of what our IMAX films are designed to do is create a sense of value for the animals and for the environment,” shares director and local San Diegan Howard Hall. “Most people will not have heard of these creatures. But once people get to know them and then learn that global warming and ocean acidification may be damaging their environment, we think they’ll start to care. Making people care is our mission.”

Shooting for IMAX posed a number of challenges for Hall. Since IMAX cameras shoot in 70mm film—twice the size of traditional film—a special, 1,300-pound camera was needed to capture the underwater magic. And because some of the locations were so remote, shipping the behemoth equipment posed logistical challenges, as well. Once in the water, the camera was virtually weightless and buoyant, but it still required at least two people to maneuver it. The logistics and challenge headaches were ultimately worth it, however, as the result is a visually stunning and breathtaking glimpse into the world of these endangered creatures.

Presented by Warner Bros. Pictures and IMAX Corporation, Under the Sea has been rated G for general audiences and has a running time of 40 minutes and 45 seconds.
