    Produced by James Cameron, shot in 3D for an underwater action-adventure released by Universal Pictures. Starts out a lot like The Descent, with an expedition to some amazing caves but everything goes wrong and they must go underwater to escape, and that's when things get intense. It's directed by Alister Grierson, and the film dives into theaters February 4th 2011. Cameron let the crew used some of his high-tech toys that he used to film his 'Titanic 3D: Ghosts of the Abyss' documentary with updated upgrades.

    And by the way, this is actually based on a true event. The co-writer Andrew Wight, went deep-sea cave diving and became trapped with fourteen other people in a cave for two days. Their entrance collapsed and they had to look for another way out. With the recent mine collapse in South America, there's interests in stories like this.

    Plot Outline:
    The 3D action-thriller Sanctum, 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?

    Shot on location off the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, 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.
