Branson, MO – Branson’s IMAX® Entertainment Complex will premiere the latest IMAX documentary Superpower Dogs on Friday, March 15, 2019. From the filmmakers behind the acclaimed documentaries Jerusalem and Journey to Mecca, Superpower Dogs offers a first-time ever window into the life-saving superpowers and extraordinary bravery of some of the world's most amazing dogs. The film is narrated by Hollywood actor Chris Evans (Captain America: The First Avenger, Gifted).

Superpower Dogs follows six real-life working dogs from around the world, along with their human partners, as they brave earthquakes and avalanches, protect endangered species such as rhinos and elephants and transform the lives of people with special needs. The film showcases, through heart-pounding original footage, the incredible abilities of dogs, and how they use their cognitive, sensory and intuitive capabilities to save lives.

Branson audiences will discover the amazing abilities of different breeds and the astonishing science behind their superpowers. We'll never look at our best friends the same way again! The stars of Superpower Dogs include:
• 'Halo', a rookie puppy training to join one of the most elite disaster response teams in America
• 'Henry', an avalanche rescue expert saving lives in the mountains of British Columbia
• 'Reef', a Newfoundland lifeguard in the Italian Coast Guard
• 'Ricochet', a surf and therapy legend in California who heals people with special needs
• 'Tipper and Tony', Bloodhound brothers leading the fight to save endangered species in Africa
“I’m really happy to be part of Superpower Dogs," said Chris Evans. "I am a proud dog owner and completely understand the connection that humans have with these remarkable animals. I love the way this film highlights incredible working dogs who utilize their real-life superpowers to help and protect people."

As a special feature, for the opening of Superpower Dogs, Branson’s own “Diskey The Wonder Dog” will be on-hand performing demonstrations in various roles, showing agility, sensory and service skills. Diskey’s Super Power is Making People Smile!
