Titans of the Ice Age 3D at the National Museum of Natural History

Titans of the Ice Age will launch in 3-D at the Samuel C. Johnson IMAX Theater at Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History on Oct. 25.

Titans of the Ice Age 3DTitans of the Ice Age is an action-packed immersive portal to the great Pleistocene ice age, 20,000 years back in time. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Christopher Plummer (The Sound of Music, Up, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Beginners), Titans of the Ice Age transports viewers to the otherworldly frozen landscapes of the northern hemisphere 10,000 years before modern civilization.

Titans of the Ice Age brings this harsh and beautiful era to life—a world buried in humans’ ancestral memory, populated by saber-toothed cats, giant sloths, dire wolves and the iconic woolly mammoths. The audience will travel across monumental glaciers and sweeping grasslands, rich in life and roam with baby Lyuba, a female woolly mammoth calf recently exposed by the melting Siberian permafrost, now one of the best-preserved mammoth mummies in the world. They will discover the story of Zed, one of the most complete Colombian Mammoth skeletons ever uncovered, extracted in 2008 from under a Los Angeles parking lot next to the famous La Brea Tar Pits, and witness a time when titans ruled untamed continents and humans walked with giants.
