James Cameron says, “If you haven’t seen the film before, this is the way to experience it, and if you have, it will be like the first time all over again. So, get out to the theaters and enjoy.”

In this underwater sci-fi adventure written and directed by James Cameron, a nuclear sub mysteriously sinks and a private oil rig crew, led by foreman Bud Brigman (Ed Harris), is recruited to join a team of Navy SEALs on a search and rescue effort.

The group soon finds themselves on a spectacular life-and-death odyssey 25,000 feet below the ocean’s surface, where they find a mysterious force that could either change the world – or destroy it.

The Abyss stars Ed Harris, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, and Michael Biehn. The movie was written and directed by James Cameron and produced by Gale Anne Hurd. It features music by Alan Silvestri.

The Abyss was originally released in theaters on August 9, 1989 and grossed $90 million worldwide, with $54.5 million coming from domestic theaters and $35.5 million from international markets.
