Dino Gangs is a feature length documentary film investigating one of the biggest questions about dinosaurs; did deadly tyrannosaurs hunt in gangs?

Ever since they were discovered, tyrannosaurs have been thought of as one of the most savage killers ever to walk the earth. They’re the one group of dinosaurs that everyone’s heard of but Phil Currie thinks we don’t really know these creatures at all. He is convinced they were more intelligent and far more dangerous than anyone could have imagined.To prove his theory he embarks on a quest that takes him to the dinosaur graveyards of the Gobi desert, the kingdom of the Komodo dragons, and the wilds of the African Kalahari. Along the way he enlists cutting edge technology to analyse tyrannosaur fossils, discover how they developed, how big their brains were and whether they had the intelligence and the finely tuned senses to hunt in an organised pack. By studying modern day animals with similarities to tyrannosaurs, Dr Currie reveals some extraordinary insights into a world that vanished 65 million years ago. A world in which tyrannosaurids ruled. At the end of his journey Dr Currie has the evidence he needs, and what he discovers could change the way we see these dinosaurs forever.Combining stunning CGI with brand new science, DINO GANGS reveals the truth about an animal as ruthless as a Komodo dragon, as fast as the fastest two legged animal on earth, and as cunning as the king of the jungle – but 13 metres long, 4 metres tall, and weighing in at 6 tons!
