In between doing a live cross here from L.A, attending the “Due Date” junket, mixing it up with some of Clint’s lovely friends, and getting just a ‘wee’ bit of sleep… I’ve been checking email, albeit sporadically. Lucky I checked it just now!
Universal have given us the heads up that “Sanctum”, the film James Cameron produced (that was filmed here in Australia), has unveiled its first trailer. It’s over at Apple in glorious HD!. Looks like a lot of fun this one! (not at all unlike Cameron’s “The Abyss”)
The 3-D action-thriller, from executive producer James Cameron, follows a team of underwater cave divers on a treacherous expedition to the largest, most beautiful and least accessible cave system on Earth. When a tropical storm forces them deep into the caverns, they must fight raging water, deadly terrain and creeping panic as they search for an unknown escape route to the sea.
Master diver Frank McGuire (Richard Roxburgh) has explored the South Pacific’s Esa-ala Caves for months. But when his exit is cut off in a flash flood, Frank’s team—including 17-year-old son Josh (Rhys Wakefield) and financier Carl Hurley (Ioan Gruffudd)—are forced to radically alter plans. With dwindling supplies, the crew must navigate an underwater labyrinth to make it out. Soon, they are confronted with the unavoidable question: Can they survive, or will they be trapped forever?
“Sanctum” employs 3-D photography techniques Cameron developed to lens Avatar. Designed to operate in extreme environments, the technology used to shoot the action-thriller will bring audiences on a breathless journey across plunging cliffs and into the furthest reaches of our subterranean world.
Look forward to seeing it!
