Deepsea Challenge 3D

It's been over two years since we heard anything about James Cameron's documentary Deepsea Challenge 3D, a film following the filmmaker's journey in his own Deepsea Challenger submersible on 13 dives into the New Britain Trench off Papua New Guinea and the Mariana Trench, where he explored the deepest part of the ocean. In fact, Cameron became the first person to travel solo to this part of the planet with a little help from National Geographic (who showed off his dive in 2012), Rolex and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Now DisruptiveLA has announced they will release the doc in US theaters on August 8th.

As the press release explains, Cameron collected various samples throughout his dives, which allowed him to identify 68 new species underwater. And there's likely plenty more to be found 35,787 feet (almost seven miles) beneath the ocean's surface. In the film, Cameron is quoted as saying, "As you approach the bottom, with barely a warning sign, the sphere buckles suddenly. Faster than you can scream, you’re smashed into jam.” This should truly be something to behold on the big screen, and what makes this better than traveling to a fictional place like Cameron's Avatar planet Pandora is that it's all real. Cool?

    It is a prerequisite for any sea explorer to wear one of those cute little knit caps.
