Synopsis

National Geographic: Journey to the Edge of the Universe
Take an express journey to the edge of the universe as the filmmakers at National Geographic use computer-generated animation to build on images captures by the Hubble Telescope. Beginning on planet Earth, viewers are hurtled into the deepest reaches of space. There are no stops on this flight, and along the way the mysteries of the universe come alive as filmmakers examine the history and science of distant celestial bodies. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Extreme
This IMAX film takes viewers into the world of extreme outdoor activity presented in the immediacy and stunning detail only IMAX can provide. Viewers will vicariously climb the ice-shrouded peaks of the world and then zoom down them on skis and snowboards. From there, the focus is on surfing and watching as experts take on the biggest waves and winds, both on surfboards and windsails. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi

National Geographic: Rhino Rescue
The black rhino is under threat in Botswana. After a pair of filmmakers witness the killing of the last of these creatures in the country, they lead a valiant effort to bring the black rhino back to the southern African nation. This National Geographic documentary chronicles the documentarians' heartfelt struggle. ~ Robert Silva, Rovi

National Geographic: Relentless Enemies
Few of natures creatures share such a fierce rivalry as lions and buffalos, and in this documentary from National Geographic filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert the brutality of these confrontations is captured in all of its ferocious glory. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

National Geographic: Atmospheres - Earth, Air and Water
This National Geographic-commissioned release actually constitutes an ambience film; it offers footage shot in three distinct atmospheres - one set on Earth (in such environs as the icy Arctic tundras and the African savannahs), another set in the air, and a third set under water - combined with soundtrack options that enable the viewer to choose between world music and a symphony natural sounds. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

National Geographic: Kingdom of the Blue Whale
This documentary from National Geographic takes a super in-depth look at the mysterious creature the Blue Whale, exploring how the effects of currents on the ocean floors influence the ways the massive creatures travel and eat, and even examining the animals' DNA. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi
