Star cast: Richard Roxburgh, Rhys Wakefield, Ioan Gruffudd, Alice Parkinson and Dan Wyllie.
Director: Alister Grierson
Plot: The 3-D action-thriller Sanctum follows a team of underwater cave divers on a treacherous expedition to the largest, most beautiful and least accessible cave system on Earth. When a tropical storm forces them deep into the caverns, they must fight raging water, deadly terrain and creeping panic as they search for an unknown escape route to the sea. Master diver Richard Roxburgh has explored the South Pacific’s Esa-ala Caves for months. But when his exit is cut off in a flash flood, Richard’s team-including 17-year-old son Rhys Wakefield and financier Ioan Gruffudd are forced to radically alter plans. With dwindling supplies, the crew must navigate an underwater labyrinth to make it out. Soon, they are confronted with the unavoidable question: Can they survive, or will they be trapped forever?
Indian Box-Office Expectations: James Cameron’s latest offering, Sanctum, will be attractive to Hollywood buffs, especially after Avatar.
