First trailer for James Cameron's cave-diving adventure Sanctum

10.27.2010

First there's news that James Cameron will be directing two AVATAR sequels as his next project, now we have the first trailer for the 3D cave diving film that he's executive producing, SANCTUM. I'm sure you're probably more interested in one of those items than the other, but my shift starts after the cooler story dropped, so whatever.

We all know that James Cameron loves underwater filming (TITANIC, THE ABYSS) so it's no surprise to see him attached here. The film itself however? It's like THE DESCENT with more water and less Gollum-like demon creatures. Specifically, no creatures at all.

So it's a battle against earth itself, which I'm sure can be exciting, but nothing about this trailer got me terribly enthused. Check it out here or in HD at Apple

Descent 2 was crap but this looks amazing and like something that would look gorgeous in 3D. I'd imagine that would really lend itself to making you feel claustrophobic. I saw "Buried" this weekend and it had me squirming and this looks like it could do the same. No blue aliens? Bring it on!

It's like THE DESCENT...

except hopefully it doesn't suck. The Descent is a huge pile of crap Blade 2 was much better...

I'll wait for the 8 minute extended re-release. Or the Ultimate Edition on DVD.

I guess it will be better than "Avatar" at least... The actors are not that good but the rest looks good.

This looks good. Clastrophobia and fear of drowning wins out over jump-scare monsters and a crazy guy running around with a knife anyday.
If this trailer had Chris Nolan's name instead of Cameron's you'd all be juicing in your pants over the exact same trailer!

The trailer isn't as claustrophobic as it maybe should be, but Richard Roxburgh sold me on this thing. The trailer itself is too showy. But over all, it looks to be a pretty cool disaster scenario.

So the acting does seem like it could be sketchy as usual but if there is ANYTHING that is perfect for 3D it is bodies of water and caves. And with Cameron's technology onboard, I'm sure it'll be pretty immersive. The shots from the first half of the trailer especially looked like they'd have a crazy depth to them in 3D.

Definitely looks interesting. That shot at the end where he's breathing the air bubbles sold me. I'll definitely see this.

Interesting enough concept, I'll probably see it, but you know its a James Cameron production when you hear that awful dialogue...

Looks wild....

I love man vs. nature and this kind of movie definitely thrills me. I'm stoked for sure and I've heard really good early reviews of it.

Cheesey

This looks like a joke. If Cameron's name wasn't on this no one would even pretend to be interested in it. Regardless of who made this, it just look awful.
