    Thought this may be of interest to a few of you :wink:

    The 3-D 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

    Can't wait for this to be released on 4th Feb :D

    Hm ... the writeup says, "a team of underwater cave divers," is there another kind of cave diver?:D

    The trailer didn't seem like much of a cave diving diving movie but rather it appeared to be a dry cave exploration until the flood came.

    If the divers are struggling against "raging" waters the diver the the left utilizing the split fins is in deep do-do. :)

    It also says "inspired by true events". Which were those?

    Key word here is "inspired." Inspired could mean he drove by a flooded drainage ditch and thought "wow, this would make a great movie."

    "Based on true events" is a different animal.

    The movie is based on an event that happened in an Australian cave. The opening did cave in with explorers in the cave.
