Yes, it’s meh.


Some people have called this preliminary footage underwhelming. That’s up for debate. Sure, there were no deep-sea behemoths waiting to gobble Cameron up the moment he hit the seafloor, but just think for a second about what you’re seeing here: this video was shot almost seven miles below the ocean surface, and reveals a vast alien landscape (located right here on Earth) that we know almost nothing about.

In 1997, George Lucas purchased a full-page ad in Variety for James Cameron when Titanic surpassed Star Wars as the highest-grossing movie of all time.

Apparently, it’s a long-standing tradition in Hollywood. Lucas himself received the bottom two plaudits from Stephen Spielberg when Star Wars outdid Jaws and E.T at the box-office. Since then, of course, Avatar has taken the crown from Titanic.

So far, Cameron hasn’t sent himself a card.
