New York, NY – Discover the jaw-dropping prehistoric world of the most terrifying reptiles with the North American premiere of Planet Dinosaur on August 21, 2012 from BBC Home Entertainment. The mysteries of the dinosaurs continue to be unearthed every day – more dinosaur discoveries have been made in the past two decades than in the past two centuries. Planet Dinosaur introduces us to this whole new cast of monsters far stranger than you ever imagined. From predators larger than the Tyrannosaurus Rex to feathered dinosaurs, these new creatures not only revolutionize our understanding of prehistoric life but of life on Earth today.

Transporting viewers to locations across the planet and back through hundreds of millions of years, Planet Dinosaur brings to life the most amazing, surprising and strange prehistoric creatures that ever lived. Narrated by John Hurt (the Harry Potter films, Hellboy), this groundbreaking series uses the latest CGI and cutting-edge research to reveal the secrets of these newly discovered giants, weaving a dramatic story of survival laced with scientific developments. This is unlike any dinosaur show you’ve ever seen – a completely immersive visual experience studded with curious facts, jaw-dropping action and charismatic monsters whose discovery entailed a re-write of the prehistory books.

Bonus features include: How to Build a Dinosaur, an hour-long making-of special.
