London, England (PRWEB) May 15, 2005
Opening this week in London's IMAX 3D Cinema, James Cameron's "Aliens of the Deep" is a phenomenal excursion to the ocean floor, where extreme life forms thrive in temperatures up to 176Â°F. Dramatically stunning, and well-served by 3D, some of the strangest creatures of earth, and otherwise familiar-looking shrimp and mussels, thrive in super-hot water.
"So what is it about their constitution that would enable those mussels to survive a pasta sauce?" Hollywood writer-actress Vanna Bonta (FLIGHT) was overheard asking the film's star marine biologist, Dijanna Figueroa. Apparently, it's about the protein breakdown, and precisely what Figueroa is studying.
The stunningly dramatic film with prize footage takes the audience from the wonders of Earth's depths to speculative exploration of Space, and what lifeforms might exist extreme conditions on other planets.
The ocean floor, with hydrothermal vents heated by Earth's volcanic core, is also home to creatures unique in their capacity to survive extremely hot temperatures. As vent water bursts out into the ocean, it can be as hot as 750Â°F -- 538Â° above boiling point.
"Aliens of the Deep" is showing at British Film Institute's IMAX 3D Cinema May 13-31.
