Moviegoers get to embark on an extraordinary journey to the top of the world in the new IMAX documentary adventure To the Arctic 3D, narrated by Oscar winner Meryl Streep and in theaters Friday, and we have a sneak-peek webisode…
"This is such an intimate look at a vast place, and the changes that are being made there have such implications for all of us down in the temperate world," says Meryl. "The great thing about films like this is that they take us places that … you know, you can't get in your car and drive to the Arctic."
To the Arctic 3D takes audiences on a never-before-experienced journey into the lives of a mother polar bear and her twin seven-month-old cubs as they navigate the changing Arctic wilderness they call home. The captivating, adventurous and intimate footage brings moviegoers up close and personal with this family's struggle to survive in a frigid environment of melting ice, immense glaciers, spectacular waterfalls, and majestic snow-bound peaks.
The film also features a musical score by Steve Wood with songs by Paul McCartney.
