Bryan Bishop, The Verge:
James Cameron’s new Avatar trilogy may have been delayed recently due to production complications, but that isn’t stopping him from signing up people for his other projects. 1
James Cameron is good at many things, but one of the filmmaking aspects I enjoy most of him are his underwater ventures. 2 While most are looking to space for unknown horrors (and of course he has done the same), Cameron has been spending a lot of time looking to the depths of our oceans to provide a bit of cinematic drama.
Jennifer Lawrence being in The Dive is irrelevant to me. She’s a fine actress. I’m sure she’ll perform well in her role as freediver Audrey Mestre. It’s the atmosphere, though, that excites me. The ocean is a massive, scary thing.
Bummer about Avatar, I’m still a big fan of the first film, despite its flaws. ↩
