Look what James Cameron is up to! The Hollywood veteran and the brain behind many a celluloid opus is all set to dive to the depths of the Mariana Trench. The mission is aimed at shooting the deep sea for his Avatar sequel. As you all know, Avatar had kept you all glued with its masterpiece theme and excellent screen craft.
In case you didn’t know, the veteran film maker is known for his interest in the oceans. Among his many movies with the waters playing a central part is the Academy award winning Titanic, which still continues to rule the minds of the film buffs across the globe.
We hear the Avatar maker has been working for several years to make a two-seater submersible for his adventurous journey. The submersible is currently in the works somewhere inAustralia.
The ocean craft has been provided with heating systems, scientific equipment and also with the 3D cameras to shoot the depths of the ocean. The underwater scenes will make his Avatar sequel a must watch, it is being reported.
Mariana Trench is the deepest part of the earth, located almost 35,994 feet deep in thePacific Ocean. The depth measures more than the total height ofMount Everest. If Cameron and his companions prove to be successful in their venture, then they would be the first to get deep into such amazing depths.
It may be recalled that in 1960, a two-member team descended up to a depth of 35,797 feet in the trench and spent around 20 minutes at there. It took five hours for their submersible named Trieste to reach that level.
At these depths, the pressure is too high and has been estimated to be equal to 16,000 lbssq in (or 2.3 million pounds of pressure per sq ft). Wait for the big move to hit theaters near you. We are sure Cameron and crew will have all the amazing shots ready for you.
