We agree: Both The Last Lions and Flying Monsters 3D are unforgettable and hopefully audiences around the world will agree.” In Flying Monsters 3D which has opened in giant-screen theatres around the United States world-renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough immerses audiences in a prehistoric world to witness the story of pterosaurs. The Last Lions was released in February and follows the life of an ostracized lioness and her cubs as they fight to survive — overcoming raging wildfires marauding male lions intent on killing any cubs not of their lineage and an aggressive and competing pride of lionesses.
