Original Article (February 10, 2012): James Cameron’s underwater documentary film Ghosts of the Abyss will be making an appearance on Blu-ray 3D sometime this year.
The 2003 Disney documentary was produced in 3D and released theatrically in IMAX 3D. It is already available on Blu-ray and DVD.
In the film, Cameron and a group of scientists explores the underwater wreckage of the Titanic. Bill Paxton, who appeared in the film Titanic, joined the expedition and narrates Ghosts of the Abyss, the first film Cameron worked on after the release of Titanic. Footage from the wreck is combined with CGI recreations of the Titanic to paint a before-and-after picture.
Below is an early look at the Ghosts of the Abyss Blu-ray 3D combo back cover art which will no doubt be accompanied by a lenticular sleeve. More details will be shared when they become available.
