In the near future, a hostile alien race has attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham, all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff and the international military are recruiting and training only the best young children to find the future Mazer (the military leader). Ender Wiggin, a shy but strategically brilliant boy, is pulled out of his school to join the elite. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military’s next great hope.

Come face to face with one of nature’s most powerful predators, the great white shark and discover how these truly magnificent creatures are a lot more fragile than we think. GREAT WHITE SHARK 3D unravels the mystery of the creature we 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. GREAT WHITE SHARK 3D takes viewers to great white hotspots around the world including Mexico’s legendary Guadalupe Island, newly-discovered shark territory around Stewart Island off the southernmost tip of New Zealand, the bone-chilling waters of South Africa’s “flying” great whites and finally to the California coast near heavily-populated Los Angeles.

Release date: 2 January 2014

Tickets: adult $18.00, concession $14.50, child $13.50, family (2 adults & 2 children) $55.00
