Get Up Close and Personal With One of the World’s Most Iconic Predators
Great White Shark Premiering at
Entergy IMAX® Theatre
Memorial Day Weekend!
Film Premieres Saturday, May 25

 
(New Orleans, La.) - Entergy IMAX® Theatre is excited to premiere Great White Shark, a new film launching on Saturday, May 25 to audiences in New Orleans, Chattanooga, Spokane and Indianapolis.  After watching great white sharks on the big screen, visitors can experience similar predators such as sand tiger sharks, nurse sharks, and tropical sharks with money-saving combination tickets to the next-door Audubon Aquarium of the Americas!

Great White Shark unravels the mystery of the creature people 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.
 
“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.”
 
To gain worldwide awareness of the plight of all sharks, Great White Shark has teamed with notable international conservation organizations Oceana and WildAid to educate viewers about the fate of sharks at the hands of Earth’s greatest predator of them all—humans.
 
“Over one-third of all open-ocean shark species are endangered and up to 73 million sharks are killed by fishermen every year to make shark fin soup that is sold throughout Asia,” said Peter Knights, Executive Director of WildAid. “A shark is finned and 98% of the shark is dumped back into the ocean to die.”

Distributed by Giant Screen Films, Great White Shark is produced by Yes/No Productions and Liquid Pictures 3D. It is narrated by acclaimed stage and film actor Bill Nighy.
