Check This Out: First New Poster for James Cameron's 'Sanctum'
Dare I make the pun and say that this official poster for James Cameron's Sanctum is "breathtaking"? Nah, I'll restrain myself, but it is a flashy poster. I realized that they can essentially throw any imagery from the movie on here, over-contrast it and fade it dark blue, slap some bubbles on it and bam -- it's exciting! Anyway, I'm sure we've all seen the trailer and know that this doesn't look that amazing, but it does remind me of one of my guilty pleasures - Deep Blue Sea. And if this movie can be that fun and harmless, then bring it on. The new poster comes from ComingSoon and does actually look pretty damn cool - check it out below!
An underwater cave diving team experiences a crisis during an expedition to an unexplored cave system.
Sanctum is directed by Australian filmmaker Alister Grierson, of only a few other short films and the feature Kokoda previously. The screenplay was co-written by both newcomer John Garvin and Andrew Wight (who produced Cameron's Aliens of the Deep and Ghosts of the Abyss) and is supposedly inspired by a true story. James Cameron and Relativity Media's Ryan Kavanaugh both helped produce the film. Universal is bringing Sanctum to theaters in 3D everywhere starting on February 4th, 2011 early next year. Anyone interested?

Alex, Deep Blue Sea was once one of my guilty pleasures. Even worse Van Helsing is still. There. I said it.

@2. Like #4, I thought Avatar sucked. And no, I don't just like to hate on stuff that's popular. I went into the movie wanting to love it. But nope. Hated it. Had some flashy action, but the movie itself was garbage.

they're milking JC's name, but it looks so bad.

The movie doesn't look that bad at all. If it didn't have JC's name people would be intrigued by it

Am I the only one who thinks it is a little unfair to the director that you're calling this "James Cameron's Sanctum"? And this happens a lot on this site. Just because some big hollywood name is helping the movie doesn't mean it is theirs.

#13 - I agree with you, but heck, they still say Back to the Future is presented by Steven Spielberg. Hasn't Zemeckis done enough now to be the headline creator of this film? All this 25th anniversary stuff that's happened this year still has Spielberg's name prominently displayed more than Zemeckis.
