Synopsis

Set in 1912, this film centres on a fearless, wise-cracking young French journalist named Adèle Blanc-Sec. She goes to Egypt on a quest to track down an ancient mummy - a Pharoah's doctor - that she plans to revive in order to save her sister Agathe, who’s been plunged into a coma. On her return to Paris, another incredible story awaits, this time involving a 136-million-year-old pterodactyl that's mysteriously hatched from an egg at the museum and is terrorising the city. Adapted from a comic, this is a visually lush, special-effects-filled adventure.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
