    Default Director James Cameron dives to bottom of Mariana Trench

    First, he directed the two highest-grossing movies of all time. Now, he's the third person in history to visit the deepest part of the oceans and the first since 1960. He took a solo dive in a specially-built sub.

    Looks like he's making a documentary about it too.

    Will he later make a high-grossing blockbuster based on Mariana Trench after the documentary?

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    Wouldn't Titanic: 2 the Surface make a better title?

    Here's hoping we'll find some new species! The Marianas Trench is a good place to look for stuff like that.

    I found out about this earlier today in my Journalism class. The whole idea seems pretty intruiging, though I would never dive that deep on my own. Even if a high-grossing movie or documentary doesn't result from his adventure, that's got to be an amazing expereince.

    Going to space and the bottom of the ocean are not on my bucket list. But I have to give him credit, not only did he get to see a sight only 2 other people in the world saw but he's going to make millions from it!

    Next he should get a private team to build a space ship and go to the moon. That would be a lot more expensive though =(
    That's nice.

    Nah, he already did The Abyss.

    Granted it wasn't a high grossing blockbuster...

    Best part is that his submarine was designed and built in Australia.

    I'm happy for him! He got to do something very few humans do. I'd love to see that documentary.
