Sharks 3D at the Odeon

Join an expert team of ocean explorers on a unique, round the globe expedition documenting the life of the ultimate predator. 'Sharks 3D' is coming to Manchester's IMAX soon, and we've got tickets to give away...

Sharks 3D at the Odeon

Duh dum…. Duh dum… duh dum duh dum duh dum duuuh!! It’s been over 30 years now since everyone’s favourite man eating monster terrorised a generation, and the Shark’s repution has never fully recovered since.

Jaws did for the shark’s public persona what a night on Hollywood Boulevard did for Hugh Grant’s. Not that Hugh is a scary flesh eating carnivore (or at least I don’t think he is), but the PR agents of both Hugh Grant and the sharks had a tough time on their hands. Damage limitation was key.

While Hugh Grant made a couple of dodgy flics before mending his shattered reputation with Notting Hill, Sharks began to do charity work. They appeared on Oprah, citing their parents’ broken marriage as the reason for their angst. Some even did kids’ shows at Sea World, but that had to be stopped after one excitable shark ate Shamu the Killer Whale. Accidentally, of course.

But nothing really helped. Sharks would be on their best behaviour all over the world, but it would just take one trouble maker to eat a surfer and it was all over the news, tarring all sharks with the same brush. Now though, more than thirty years after Jaws sold out on his species for a life in the Hollywood Hills and a swimming pool, sharks will once again be the focus of the big screen. Only this time, the PR people seem to have got it right.

Sharks 3D, presented by Jean-Michel Cousteau, is a breathtaking new three-dimensional film experience that offers audiences an astonishing up-close encounter with a multitude of shark species, including the Great White, Hammerhead, and Whale Shark.

Sharks 3D shows sharks as they really are: not blood thirsty man eating creatures, but wild, fascinating and endangered animals that were in existence a million years before dinosaurs roamed the Earth. That’s not to say that sharks are soft lads. Oh no. You wouldn’t want to bump into one of these fellas in a dark alley. Not that you would. Sharks may be the world’s most evolved predator, but they haven’t yet developed the ability to stalk inner city alley ways, thank god.

Showing at Manchester’s Imax from 9th June, there will be an exclusive screening of the film on Thursday 8th June, at 6.30pm. We have 50 pairs of tickets to give away, so if you would like to get up close and personal with real life sharks, simply fill in your details below to be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets. Jaws who?
