Proceeds from Arctic Tale To Benefit Nature Funds
(released 7/12/2007)


Paramount Classics has established the "Arctic Fund" to coincide with the release of their film, Arctic Tale, on July 25. Four groups working to protect the Arctic and its inhabitants -- The National Geographic Polar Fund, World Wildlife Fund, National Wildlife Federation and Wildlife Conservation Society -- will receive equal shares from a percentage of the domestic box office revenue.

From National Geographic Films, the people that brought you March of the Penguins and Paramount Classics, the studio that brought you An Inconvenient Truth, Arctic Tale is an epic wildlife adventure that explores the vast world of the Great North. The movie tells the story of a walrus pup and a polar bear cub on their life's journey from birth to adolescence to maturity and parenthood in the frozen Arctic wilderness. Once an almost perpetual winter wonderland, the walrus and the polar bear are losing their beautiful icebound world as it melts from underneath them. Queen Latifah is the Storyteller of Arctic Tale, and the movie features music from Ben Harper, Brian Wilson, Aimee Mann and The Shins.
