Here's the first trailer for the James Cameron produced film Sanctum, which looks like a fun and intense film. It kind of reminds me of the horror film The Decent, but without the monsters. I enjoy watching these kinds of films, so I'm looking forward to it. I've always been interested in deep dark exploration. I tried sperlunking (cave diving) once, had fun, almost died, and I haven't done it since. I feel much safer experiencing it on the big screen these days.
Sanctum was directed by Alister Grierson (Kokoda), and shot in 3D. The film stars Richard Roxburgh, Rhys Wakefield, Ioan Gruffudd, Alice Parkinson and Dan Wyllie.
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?
