Using state-of-the-art technology developed expressly for this expedition, Cameron and his crew are able to explore virtually all of the wreckage, inside and out, as never before. With the most advanced 3D photography, moviegoers will experience the ship as if they are part of the crew, right inside the dive subs.

Trivia: The two robotic submarines in the film are named Jake and Elwood, a reference to The Blues Brothers.
