Trailer for “Deepsea Challenge 3D” takes us seven miles down

New documentary film takes us along James Cameron’s record-breaking solo dive to the ocean’s deepest point.

When director James Cameron made his record-setting solo dive to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, he brought with him an innovative six-camera high-definition 3-D system to capture the void — and any life within it.

“We created a tiny camera that fits in a very small housing to sit out at the end of a camera boom on a one-person sub that was going down to 36,000 feet,” The Hollywood Reporter quoted Cameron as saying. “We developed a 1080p [pixel] camera that was about the size of your thumb that sat inside a little titanium housing, and we generated 3-D from it by essentially putting two housings side by side, because the interocular was small enough.”
While we’ve seen small moments of footage from that historic expedition, the full amazing story of the feat – from engineering to construction to the dive itself — will now be told in the upcoming theatrical release of “Deepsea Challenge 3D.” Directed by John Bruno, Ray Quint and Andrew Wight, the film “tells the story of Cameron’s journey to fulfill his boyhood dream of becoming an explorer.”

For Fox, Much Is Riding on 3 Sequels to ‘Avatar’

Like the deep-sea craft James Cameron used to dive nearly seven miles down in the Pacific, the long-awaited screenplays for his three sequels to “Avatar” will soon pop to the surface, probably within weeks.

Mr. Cameron, an avid adventurer as well as one of Hollywood’s most successful directors, has been working for much of the last several years on the “Avatar” films, when he was not indulging his other passion and exploring the deepest parts of the ocean.

For those who share Mr. Cameron’s moviemaking adventures — particularly executives at 20th Century Fox, which released “Avatar” to about $2.8 billion in worldwide ticket sales almost five years ago — delivery of finished scripts will signal the beginning of perhaps their grandest enterprise.

Fox, as well as Mr. Cameron and his cohorts at Lightstorm Entertainment, his production company, are expecting the three successive “Avatar” films — set for release in three straight Decembers beginning in 2016 — to transform their companies and possibly once again to set a new standard for large-scale, multimedia entertainment.

‘James Cameron’s Deepsea Challenge 3D’ to open in August

The documentary “James Cameron’s Deepsea Challenge 3D” will drop anchor in theaters nationwide Aug. 8, distributor DisruptiveLA announced Tuesday.

Directed by John Bruno, Andrew Wight and Ray Quint, the movie follows James Cameron, the Academy Award-winning filmmaker and undersea enthusiast, as he embarks on a scientific expedition in a manned submersible to the Challenger Deep, the deepest known point in Earth’s seabed.

During a series of 13 dives in 2012 in the Mariana Trench, 200 miles southwest of Guam, the single-pilot Deepsea Challenger collected samples and identified 68 new species; on one dive, Cameron piloted the craft to a depth of nearly seven miles below surface.

DisruptiveLA is releasing the film with National Geographic, which helped to execute the dives.

Though Cameron is best known as the director of blockbusters such as“Titanic,” “Terminator 2” and “Avatar,” he is a veteran deep-sea explorer and has created a number of documentaries on the subject, including “Aliens of the Deep” and “Ghosts of the Abyss.”

On March 26, 2012, the expedition culminated in Cameron’s historic solo dive 35,787 feet — nearly seven miles — beneath the ocean’s surface.

Confronting the enormity of the dive to the Challenger Deep, the deepest part of the Mariana Trench, Cameron recalled thinking, “I’ve had years to contemplate this moment, and I won’t say there hasn’t been dread.”
