'Dinosaur 13': See the trailer for the Sundance T. rex doc that roared -- EXCLUSIVE

In 1990, paleontologist Peter Larson and his team discovered the biggest and most complete T. rex skeleton ever recorded in the badlands of South Dakota. Named Sue — after Susan Hendrickson, the woman who initially found the first fossils — the skeleton became a major tourist attraction for Larson’s Black Hill Institute. But in 1992, the FBI arrived with a warrant and the National Guard — and confiscated Sue, claiming that the scientists had stolen her off private property. It seems everyone wanted a piece of Sue. Over the next 10 years, Larson’s team would have to fight in court, not only for their right to keep Sue but also for their own freedom.

Directed by Todd Douglas Miller, Dinosaur 13 was a crowd-pleaser at Sundance, where it debuted earlier this year. It was quickly picked up by Lionsgate and CNN Films, and it will open in theaters and VOD on Aug. 15.

Sundance 2014: With tons of movies sold, the lack of a mega deal was no big deal

I can testify that when you go to a film festival, and someone inquires about how the movies were that year, the answer you end up giving — “Really terrific!” “Lousy!” “They were okay!” — is often dictated by exactly one movie. If you saw something that totally knocked you out, the sort of film that you think is going to get major play in the real world, and you’re already dusting off a place on your 10 Best list for it, then that¬†one movie can determine your entire perception of the festival. That’s what happened to me last year at Sundance when I saw Fruitvale (they hadn’t added the Station yet). The fact that you’ve witnessed a certified home run makes the festival feel to you, in hindsight, like…well, a baseball game in which your team hit a home run. It’s more than a good movie; it’s why you came — to see an unheralded filmmaker knock one out of the park. A single movie that rocks your world can define, year in and year out, the Sundance experience — the reason that a festival like this one exists. Some of the films I’ve seen at Sundance that have had that effect include Crumb (1995), Welcome to the Dollhouse (1995), I Shot Andy Warhol (1996), Buffalo 66 (1998), The Blair Witch Project (1999), Chuck & Buck (2000), Wet Hot American Summer (2001), American Splendor (2003), Capturing the Friedmans (2003), Thirteen (2003), Hustle & Flow (2005), Precious (2009), and Fruitvale (2013).
