The 3-D action-thriller Sanctum 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 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 and financier Carl Hurley 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?

In the Spirit of 'The Abyss', Underwater Survival in Extreme Conditions
If you're a Cameron fan, you that 'The Abyss' was one of the a most revolutionary, totally under-rated film of the 1990's. After 'Avatar', Cameron changes the game again with a harrowing, inspired by true events underwater, underground thriller w/ spectacular backdrops only rivaled by photos from the last edition of National Geographic. The characters are well cast, as a thrill seeking, adrenaline fiendish clan, and when things start to unravel, their true forms are revealed. An intense story of survival while examining the human reaction to a sudden, life-threatening situation, all shot in 3-D. See it, experience it!
