Hi, Do OpenGL and DX have any relation with motion picture ? Do Film producers use them to programming something in movies ?? Thanks.

No, those API's are used for creating applications that display real-time graphics. The CGI you see in movies is all generated offline, which means that the frames are rendered very slowly (usually by multiple computers) and when they're done all the frames are composited into the footage you see. This rendering is done using sophisticated 3D packages such as Autodesk Maya.
