BORN TO BE WILD 3D JOURNEYS INTO ENTERGY IMAX® THEATRE ON   FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10
Latest IMAX® 3D Documentary Narrated by Morgan Freeman

(New Orleans, La.) - Join IMAX® and Warner Bros. Pictures on a miraculous journey of second chances when Born to be Wild 3D opens on Friday, February 10, 2012 at Entergy IMAX® Theatre. Follow these young orphaned elephants and orangutans on the trip of a lifetime, from birth to their rebirth into the wild. This family friendly documentary will transport moviegoers around the world to the far stretches of Kenya and Borneo and will inspire them to take action and save earth's precious creatures.

Narrated by Academy-Award® winner Morgan Freeman, Born to be Wild 3D is an inspiring story of love, dedication and the remarkable bond between humans and animals. This film documents orphaned orangutans and elephants and the extraordinary people who rescue and raise them-saving endangered species one life at a time. Stunningly captured in IMAX® 3D, Born to be Wild 3D is a heartwarming adventure transporting moviegoers into the lush rainforests of Borneo with world-renowned primatologist Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas, and across the rugged Kenyan savannah with celebrated elephant authority Dame Daphne M. Sheldrick, as they and their teams rescue, rehabilitate and return these incredible animals back to the wild.

"Spending so much time among the orphaned elephants and orangutans in this film was a life changing experience," said Producer/Writer Drew Fellman. "And IMAX® 3D makes it possible to share that wonder with the audience in a very profound way that takes us directly into the lives and struggles of these amazing animals."

The film has been rated G and has a run time of 40 minutes.
