Jame’s Cameron is releasing a new movie within the next month called Ghosts of the Abyss. I had an opportunity to meet Cameron at his production company Lightstorm Entertainment last month and got a once in a lifetime opportunity to see him review and comment on this film in the Lightstorm screening room. Cameron makes a habit of pushing the bounds of technology and film and this film is no different. The 3D technology in this film is very impressive. It isn’t some animated feature that has been generated in 3D, it is the representation of real actors and film sequences in three dimensions. The combination of this technolgoy IMAX will create a very unique experience. Check it out and see if it is playing near you.
As a side note, this movie has nothing to do with Cameron’s science fiction film The Abyss. Ghosts of the Abyss is about an underwater expedition to the Titantic. The Abyss, which is now over 15 years old, remains one of the best science fiction movies of all time. It is about the discovery of an unknown life-form at the bottom of the ocean and is one of the few movies that can point to a plot line where a single text message saves the world.
