Narrated by two-time Golden Globe nominee Ewan McGregor, Humpback Whales is an extraordinary journey into the mysterious world of one of natures most awe-inspiring marine mammals.
Set in the spectacular waters of Alaska, Hawaii and the remote islands of Tonga, this ocean adventure offers audiences an up-close look at how these whales communicate, sing, feed, play and take care of their young. Captured for the first time with IMAX 3D cameras, and found on every ocean on Earth, humpbacks were nearly driven to extinction 50 years ago, but today are making a slow but remarkable recovery. Join a team of researchers as they unlock the secrets of the humpback and find out why humpbacks are the most acrobatic of all whales, why they sing their haunting songs, and why these intelligent, 55-foot, 50-ton animals migrate up to 10,000 miles round-trip every year.

There are so many phenomenal, breath-taking shots in this film: from the snow-covered Alaskan peaks to the orangey glow of the sunrise on the horizon of the ocean. In the 4K version of the film, all of these colors look even richer and more vibrant…..The films technical presentation is excellent: there are some very visually-stunning moments! --NoReruns.net, August 1, 2016
