A new poster is out for Sanctum, the 3D movie set underwater that is being executive produced by James Cameron.
Sanctum is based on events that happened to one of the film’s co-writers, Andrew Wight and follows a team of underwater divers that are exploring one of the most treacherous cave systems in the world when a massive storm cuts off their means of escape, and begins to flood the caves. The team struggles to survive against the labyrinth-like terrain, the rising water, and their own fears.
Synopsis: The 3-D 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?
Directed by Australian director Alister Grierson who was chosen by Cameron to helm the movie, the movi will be filmed entirely in 3D, using the technology that Cameron helped develop, the Fusion Camera System.
