WATCH: James Cameron's First Home Movies From Earth's Deepest Spot

The visionary, Oscar-winning director of The Abyss, Titanic and Avatar went to the planet's deepest spot, and all we got were these lousy clips from the bottom of the sea. Don't fret, however! There is much, much more where James Cameron's preliminary submarine footage came from. For now, let the director/explorer fill you in on what he witnessed, right down to shrinking windows under 16,000 pounds of pressure per square inch.

    What, no 3-D? Ugh, pussy.

    • The Winchester says:

      That version will be released next year in an attempt to placate us and grab more of our dollars while pushing back Avatar 2 start date and announcing True Lies 3D.

    Say what you like about his films but he's got a bigger set of balls than the rest of us. I wouldn't go anywhere near that thing.

    By the way, when did we stop adding the 's' to the end of Marianas? I didn't get that memo.

      The missing "S" has been bugging me too. Looks like it goes with or without.

    • S.T. VanAirsdale says:

      The variation has been around forever. I think most scientists go with "Mariana" in accordance with the islands around the trench -- Mariana Islands, Mariana Trench -- but either is technically correct.

  • Patrick Hallstein / McEvoy-Halston says:

    Tom Cruise is atop the tallest building in the world, Cameron at sea-bottom: anyone else have a sense we're in the midst of being triangulated? Regardless, the perameters of existence are somehow seeming reduced and material, with the sweet-spots already claimed.
