It is only one week until 10,000 BC opens and is in theaters nationwide on March 7th, 2008. Mammoths roaming the screen. Saber-toothed tigers jumping your way. And other surprises awaiting you. And prizes you can win here!
I’ve already mentioned the film here, run the trailer, and frankly told you I am a shameless big pre-fan of the forthcoming movie 10,000 B.C.. Now I’m happy to announce some more insights about the film and, for those paying close attention, some cool movie promotion giveaways you can get exclusively through Cryptomundo. More about that in a minute. First, some new detailed overviews of the movie, giving some background to the motion picture.
From director Roland Emmerich comes a sweeping odyssey into a mythical age of prophecies and gods, when spirits rule the land and mighty mammoths shake the earth.
In a remote mountain tribe, the young hunter, D’Leh (Steven Strait), has found his heart’s passion – the beautiful Evolet (Camilla Belle). When a band of mysterious warlords raid his village and kidnap Evolet, D’Leh is forced to lead a small group of hunters to pursue the warlords to the end of the world to save her.
Driven by destiny, the unlikely band of warriors must battle saber-tooth tigers and prehistoric predators and, at their heroic journey’s end, they uncover a Lost Civilization. Their ultimate fate lies in an empire beyond imagination, where great pyramids reach into the skies. Here they will take their stand against a powerful god who has brutally enslaved their people.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.
