Shout! Factory has two more new additions to its recently launched IMAX 4K UHD series on the way this July.
Flight of the Butterflies and Rocky Mountain Express will be released Tuesday, July 12th. Both programs will be presented on separate standalone Blu-ray and 4K UHD/3-D Blu-ray platforms. Flight of the Butterflies follows what is one of the most incredible of nature’s phenomena in the migration of the monarch butterfly. It follows a husband and wife scientist team as they follow the butterflies’ annual migration. It is the only film for IMAX® theaters to ever sweep all of the Giant Screen Cinema association’s annual awards. Included as bonus material in the documentary are: trailers, image gallery, making of featurette, and a very special message from Lic. Felipe Calderon Hinojosa, President of Mexico from 2006 – 2012. Audiences can view the trailer for this program online now via Shout! Factory’s official website.
The second of Shout! Factory’s new IMAX home offerings, Rocky Mountain Express takes audiences on an exhilarating train ride through the Canadian Rockies while also presenting the history of America’s first transcontinental railroad and its construction. The program was recorded on authentic 15 perf. 70 MM negative and originally presented in IMAX theaters nationwide. Audiences are taken along for the ride thanks to cameras mounted on-board the program’s featured train and above on-board a group of helicopters. The trailer for Rocky Mountain Express is also available online via Shout! Factory’s official website.
