Disney has announced that the 20th Century Studios film, “The Abyss: Special Edition”, is going to be re-released in cinemas for one night only on December 6th.
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.
James Cameron said in a statement:
“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.”
Disney has released a new trailer and poster for the re-release:
Back in September, James Cameron took part in a special screening event for the film and confirmed the film will also be released on home media soon, but it’s likely now that’ll be after the re-release in cinemas. Currently, the film isn’t available to purchase on any digital platform, nor is it available on any streaming service, so hopefully, it won’t be too long until “The Abyss” is available to stream on Disney+.
Tickets go on sale beginning November 20 and can be purchased at Fandango or wherever tickets are sold.
