The Lorax 3-D Poster Art

Here is the poster art for Dr. Suess' The Lorax 3-D.

SPOILER ALERT: For those who don't get the inside joke, IMAX TREE-D instead of Three-D is a play on words because The Lorax is a film with an environmentally-friendly story.

The 3-D CGI feature Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is an adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ classic tale of a forest creature who shares the enduring power of hope. The animated adventure follows the journey of a boy as he searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.

Danny DeVito will lend his vocal talents to the iconic title character of the Lorax, while Ed Helms will voice the enigmatic Once-ler. Also bringing their talents to the film are global superstars Zac Efron as Ted, the idealistic young boy who searches for the Lorax, and Taylor Swift as Ashley, the girl of Ted’s dreams. Rob Riggle will play financial king O’Hare, and beloved actress Betty White will portray Ted’s wise Grammy Norma.

Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is the third feature created by Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment

James Cameron's Deepsea Challenger 3-D film

Filmmaker and explorer James Cameron reportedly broke the record for deepest solo sub dive in the submersible Deepsea Challenge. Within weeks Cameron plans to dive to the ocean's deepest point.

In the space of 90 minutes, the sub is to carry Cameron to the bottom of Challenger Deep, a 6.8-mile-deep (11-kilometer-deep) depression in the Pacific Ocean's Mariana Trench. The first and last time humans descended into the trench was more than 50 years ago.

The dive is part of Cameron's Deepsea Challenge project, co-sponsored by National Geographic, which will take him and a crew of engineers, scientists and filmmakers to explore the world's ocean trenches.

With the last few weeks, Cameron and his team have successfully completed untethered test dives in the submersible off Papua New Guinea and plan to conduct more tests near Guam before attempting the Challenger Deep descent.
