“Dolphins,” an IMAX film produced by Laguna Beach filmmaker MacGillivray Freeman, has surpassed the $100 million mark at the worldwide box office.
The film, which was nominated for an Academy Award for best documentary short subject, has been seen by nearly 20 million people since its debut in 2000.
“Millions of people have been entertained and inspired by this underwater romp with the ocean’s most playful creatures, and we’re proud of the fact that the film is still playing in theatres today,” said Shaun MacGillivray, president of MacGillivray Freeman Films.
Actor Pierce Brosnan narrates “Dolphins” and Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Sting composed the title song. The documentary follows a team of scientists as they travel from Patagonia to the Bahamas studying dolphin communication.
