Director James Cameron is no stranger to the realm of sci-fi. Who is responsible for The Terminal franchise and AvatarCameron literally has three of the four highest grossing films of all time thanks to the Avatar series and Titanic. But a lesser triumph of his filmmaking, The Abusegetting his turn in the spotlight.
The 1989 sci-fi blockbuster is returning to theaters for one night only in the United States During the promotional tour for Avatar: The Way of the WaterCameron mentioned out of hand that he had a 4K master The Abuse it was working on a 2023 release at some point. Although the re-release was scheduled to come in the first half of the year, TitanicThe importance of 25 years of re-release was considered more important.
However, the underwater thriller starring Ed Harris, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, and Michael Biehn is getting its time in the sun. To be released in theaters on December 6, The Abuse returning for one night. With the entire film given a fresh coat of paint in the form of a 4K remaster, Cameron is encouraging anyone whether they’ve seen the film or not to enjoy it in this form in the future.
In a video posted on his Twitter account, Cameron said “If you haven’t seen the film before, this is the way to experience it. And if you are, you’ll see the movie I really wanted to make, with some big surprises that weren’t seen in the original release.” Cameron is probably referring to material included in The Abyss: Special Edition, which was a limited release back in 1993 that included about 28 minutes of extra footage in the film. Since that version would be 30 years old in 2023, many believe that this is what motivated Cameron to release the film in theaters again.
For those who have never experienced The Abuse, the film focuses on a US search and rescue team working with an oil platform crew to find a US Navy submarine that has sunk in the Caribbean Sea. However, as they explore deeper into the ocean, they encounter new and unexpected threats to their lives, not to mention their mission. Of course, this is not Cameron’s first take on extraterrestrials, as he ordered the Foreigner sequence Aliens just 3 years before.
He is highly regarded for his special effects (which is not surprising considering he is James Cameron), The Abuse actually won the Oscar for Best Visual Effects in 1990. The film has remained a cult favorite for the past 34 years, praised as an underrated piece of Cameron’s. The Abyss: Special Edition it hit theaters in the United States on December 6.
