Deadly Killer Whale Documentary Blackfish Bought At Sundance

Filed under: Film FlickersWhales

A new documentary called Blackfish had the interest of several buyers at Sundance.

The film is about Tilikum, the killer whale who is responsible for the deaths of three people.

We previously mentioned that a highly skilled trainer was killed at SeaWorld when Tilikum dragged her underwater and wouldn't let her go.

Now, this documentary seeks to expose the cruelty that these creatures suffer at SeaWorld and how their living conditions can drive them to madness!

The doc is apparently so good that both Magnolia Pictures and CNN Films bought the rights to the film together.

Magnolia is going to release it July 19th while CNN is going to air it sometime this fall.

Check out the video (above) to see the trailer for Blackfish!
