The James Cameron produced Sanctum is a film that does not have big name stars (with the possible exception of Ioan Gruffudd), isn’t based on a book/comic/older movie, but might be one of the sleeper hits of 2011.
Sanctum follows a team of underwater divers that are exploring one of the most treacherous cave systems in the world when a massive storm cuts off their means of escape, and begins to flood the caves. The team struggles to survive against the labyrinth-like terrain, the rising water, and their own fears.
Directed by Australian director Alister Grierson who was chosen by Cameron to helm the movie, Sanctum will be filmed entirely in 3D, using the technology that Cameron helped develop, the Fusion Camera System.
Sanctum hits theaters in 3D on February 4, 2011.
