‘Ghosts of the Abyss’ Coming to Blu-ray in 2D and 3D September 11, 2012

I’ve always been interested in the Titanic, and what happened that fateful day April 15, 2012. One of my favorite documentaries in recent memory has been Jame Cameron’s ‘Ghosts of the Abyss’.  It’s a breathtaking and beautiful journey down to the grave of the Titanic, something that hasn’t been seen since the night it sank. It’s really an incredible little documentary, and I’m pleased to see that Disney will be releasing a blu-ray in 2D and 3D, including the extended version of the film, on September 11, 2012. I can’t wait to sit down and watch this one in high def, and I really look forward to adding it to my blu-ray collection. How about you?

Hit the jump for the full press release.

Academy Award®-winning Director and master storyteller, James Cameron journey’s back to the site of his greatest inspiration – the legendary wreck of the titanic. With a team of the world’s foremost  historic  and  marine  experts  and  friend  Bill  Paxton,  he  embarks  on an  unscripted adventure back to the final grave where nearly 1,500 souls lost their lives almost a century ago.
