Yet another ‘found footage' film, this time dealing with an ill-fated expedition into the Congo

The Blair Witch Project has a lot to answer for, as we appear to be inundated with ‘found footage' films these days. The conceit is always a tricky one to achieve successfully because you need to establish how the footage was found (are you listening Apollo 18) and also shoot the footage in a realistic way. After all you don't want people thinking why is that guy filming when he should be running! The Dinosaur Project is a 'found footage' film about the ill-fated, eponymous 2011 expedition to the Congo in search of the Mokele Mbembe. No prizes for guessing what they find in the jungle, so they'd better look good.

Ahead of the release of The Dinosaur Project on Blu-ray and DVD from 27th August, Studiocanal are making available the trailer, clips, stills and poster for you to look at.

Studiocanal are delighted to finally bring this astonishing story of the missing Congo expedition to UK audiences, and the findings of the Cryptozoological Society to audiences around the world.*The film features stunning recovered footage of creatures thought to be extinct for 65 million years. As the search for the missing crew continues, questions remain about the source of the missing footage and the manner in which it was discovered. Producer Nick Hill said in a statement today, "It has been incredible to have the original source material to work with, and we have great respect and admiration for the work of the Cryptozoological Society and are keen to support them in their search. The movie raises important questions about species which conventional science tells us have long since become extinct, and we hope it will help raise awareness of the*search to locate the missing persons and the BCZS's on-going work in the Congo.
