Captivating Trailer for the Documentary DINOSAUR 13

Here's a great trailer to a fascinating looking documentary called Dinosaur 13. The film follows a team of paleontologists in the 1990s and their discovery of a T-rex they named Sue, and how the government used the highest US law enforcement agencies to take it away from them. It looks like it will be a very frustrating story to watch unfold. Here's the synopsis:

When Paleontologist Peter Larson and his team from the Black Hills Institute made the world's greatest dinosaur discovery in 1990, they knew it was the find of a lifetime: the largest, most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex ever found. But during a ten-year battle with the U.S. government, powerful museums, Native American tribes and competing paleontologists, they found themselves not only fighting to keep their dinosaur but fighting for their freedom as well.

 The movie is set to be released on August 15th.
