Interweaves the story of the monarch butterfly migration, the longest most amazing insect migration on the Planet Earth, and the fascinating scientific detective story of the 30 year long search for their remote overwintering sites in Mexico. Every Fall half a billion Monarch butterflies head south on an epic three thousand mile journey. We invite you to soar a mile high alongside one of the greatest spectacles of the natural world, as we follow this incredible migration. From Canada through the US to Mexico, they unite these countries and cultures as children watch the skies with wonder. During the spring's return flight north we encounter other fascinating critters. Bumblebees collecting pollen in flower meadows, thousands of mayflies hatching on the Mississippi river, farmer ants, and sheperding caterpillars up trees and milking them of honeydew. The award winning film production team follows up on the smash success of Bugs! A Rainforest Adventure with a new film about yet more amazing tiny creatures on the giant screen in 3D and 2D.

Home Market Releases for July 12th, 2016

July 12th, 2016

Green Room

It is a very slow week for the home market. The biggest release of the week is The Divergent: Series Allegiant, which is a movie most people should avoid. (Looking at its box office numbers, most people did avoid it.) As for the best releases, Belladonna Of Sadness is amazing, but the screener arrived late and I don’t like handing out that title when I haven’t had a chance to check out the full release. Fortunately, we do have a backup contender, Everybody Wants Some on Blu-ray Combo Pack. More...
