After years of rumors, James Cameron has finally remastered The Abyss in 4K and is releasing it in theaters for one night only on December 6th. Here’s the trailer.

I don't think there could be a greater disconnect between how much I enjoy this film, and how much the actors have basically disavowed it. I think I read somewhere that Ed Harris won't even mention it. It guess it was an awfully brutal shoot.

That said, I once got a question to Eric Idle in a Reddit AMA about Baron Munchausen, another favorite, and he said he would rather go back to boarding school than make that film again, so I guess I super enjoy it when actors are actually suffering? 🤷🏻‍♂️

Whenever The Abyss remaster comes up, I always run through three thoughts:

  1. I’ll believe it when I see it.
  2. Would we care this much about The Abyss is James Cameron hadn’t denied it to us for so long? Is it just a good movie that’s taken on an elevated status just because we can’t watch it?

I wish I could secure tickets now so I won't forget, which I will because I know me.

Tickets go on sale on Nov 20; put it in your calendar!

There is a documentary, UNDER PRESSURE: MAKING 'THE ABYSS', which documents the unbelievable rigors of the shoot.

I can not find tickets on sale anywhere or any theaters listed as showing this film.
