Thursday, July 31, 2014 – Dinosaur 13, the 2014 American documentary on one the most beloved carnivorous beasts that ever walked the Earth, is ready for your enjoyment; in select theaters, available On Demand and in Digital HD on August 15, 2014! Describing a discovery of a lifetime, this epic aims to capture the emotion of finding Sue, the drama that unfolded with the FBI, and how Sue found her new home.

The story revolves around paleontologist Peter Larson, his team from the Black Hills Institute, and paleontologist Sue Hendrickson and their August 12, 1990 discovery of one of the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex skeletons… Sue. Two years post-discovery, when the FBI and the National Guard showed up, battle lines were drawn over ownership of Sue.
