One of James Cameron’s most important films is getting a theatrical re-release.

If you had to sum up James Cameron’s whole cinematic career with a single one of his works The Abyss would be my choice. It’s one of his most personal films, and its technological achievements, like a whole monster created from water, were astounding in 1989, and remarkable even in 2023.

The film, about a crew of a submersible oil rig forced to partner with the government to recover nuclear warheads, was a famously grueling shoot full of technological innovations, and its returning to theaters December 6, with a remastered 4K print.
