Five ‘Sanctum’ Clips and Two Behind-the-Scenes Videos

Universal Pictures has released five new clips and two behind-the-scenes featurettes from the upcoming 3D adventure Sanctum, which arrives in theaters nationwide on February 4. Click on the video below to delve deeper into this thriller, which is executive produced by James Cameron:









The 3D 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?

Shot on location off the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, Sanctum employs 3D photography techniques Cameron developed to lens Avatar. Designed to operate in extreme environments, the technology used to shoot the action-thriller will bring audiences on a breathless journey across plunging cliffs and into the furthest reaches of our subterranean world.

Sanctum was released February 4th, 2011.

                  yeah this movie looke really stupid. the whole 'we're experts but gonna die in a cave anyway' thing has been done to death over the last few years. and that stupid ass line "what could go wrong diving in caves" just shows how badly written it is. sorry JC you're not getting my money on this one. i wont even watch it in a dollar theatre, as someone stated below.
