'Flying Monsters' - American Musem of Natural History, LeFrak Theater
Through January 04, 2013 - Upper West Side

"Flying Monsters" is a new giant screen adventure about the awe-inspiring world of a group of reptiles who ruled the skies about 220 million years ago. Produced by award-winning Atlantic Productions and distributed by National Geographic Entertainment, the film follows world-renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough as he sets out to uncover the truth about the enigmatic pterosaurs, who, after insects, were the first creatures to fly. Attenborough, who wrote and narrates the film, works with scientists and engineers to try and understand how and why pterosaurs flew, traveling to New Mexico's "Ghost Ranch," Big Bend National Park in Texas, Lyme Regis in the United Kingdom, an ancient pterosaur landing site in Southern France, a fossil pit in Germany where near-perfect pterosaur specimens have been found, and China's remote Liaoning Province in search of answers. How did creatures the size of giraffes with a wingspan of 45 feet fly through the air? The audience will be immersed in the world of the pterosaur and experience the enormous challenges these creatures faced to survive, let alone flourish, in prehistoric skies. The film will introduce viewers to Dimorphodon, the earliest known pterosaur with a complete fossil, Darwinopterus, which, with a lighter build than Dimorphodon, had a wingspan of 2.3-3.3 feet, Tapejara, which may have configured its body to sail across the ocean in search of prey, and Quetzalcoatlus, which, with a wingspan of 33-40 feet and an 8-foot-long beak, is the biggest known animal that has ever flown. Flying Monsters 3D won a BAFTA award in 2011 from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts in the Specialist Factual category, Best 3D Program at the 2011 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival, and Best Science Film from the Association of International Broadcasting. The film will screen at the museum through January 4, 2013. Entrance to the museum is included in movie ticket price.

Following three consecutive sold-out performances in 2012, the PBR returns to New York City for the seventh consecutive year to open the 2013 elite Built Ford Tough Series season and kick-off the 20th anniversary of PBR competition. Two decades ago, 20 cowboys with one dream transformed bull riding into a global sports phenomenon that is now televised worldwide. Their vision and determination made PBR one of the fastest growing sports in history which has awarded over $120 million dollars in prize money over to date. The 20th Anniversary celebration includes stops in at least 15 different states over 27 events on the 2013 Built Ford Tough Series tour. This seventh annual event, the Monster Energy Invitational, will feature the Top 35 bull riders in the world and the country's fiercest bucking bulls. Fans will be able to experience three action-packed nights of intense 8-second rides and outrageous wrecks as 150-pound cowboys – including 2012 MSG Invitational Champion Cody Nance and reigning World Champion Silvano Alves – have their chance in the arena against their 2,000-pound opponents. The PBR is the world's premier bull riding organization. 2013 marks the 20th anniversary of PBR competition. In just two decades, the dream of 20 bull riders has become a global sports phenomenon that is televised worldwide. More than 100 million viewers annually watch primetime PBR programming on networks around the world and nearly two million fans attend Built Ford Tough Series and Touring Pro Division events each year. 25 riders have earned over $1 million each, including Justin McBride with $5.5 million – the most of any Western-sports athlete in history. PBR World Champion Silvano Alves also reached $2 million in 23 months and 58 events, which is faster than any bull rider in history. The Built Ford Tough Series will make 26 stops around the U.S. before the Built Ford Tough World Finals in Las Vegas on Oct. 23-27, 2013. The World Finals are where the PBR World Champion will be crowned and awarded the coveted championship buckle and a $1 million bonus. Known as the richest bull riding event to take place, the World Finals awards over $2 million to participating riders each year. Prior to PBR, there was not a bull rider who earned $1 million during their career, including eight-time world champion Donnie Gray. Top-ranked rodeo bull riders could earn $100,000 at most in a season, compared to 20 or more riders earning over $100,000 apiece in each of the last seven years of PBR. In 2011, 22 riders earned over $100,000, 10 of which won more than $200,000. PBR has awarded over $120 million dollars in prize money over 20 years of competition.
