Before She Was Sue

Opening today in theaters and newly available online and on demand is the documentary Dinosaur 13. (H/T Vulture)  It may not be your first exposure to the titular dinosaur, as she’s traveled the world.

But before Sue could be shipped to museums around the world, there was the matter of ownership.  Dinosaur 13 chronicles her discovery (though her gender is apparently not a certainty), the fight surrounding her ownership, and the associated legal battles.  Here’s the trailer:

For a written version of the story told in Dinosaur 13, check out Rex Appeal.  Both are informed by a particular perspective in the fight.  For a less partial perspective, Tyrannosaurus Sue may be the place to go.
