That's SEVEN MILES DEEP!!!
James Cameron has been wanting to literally hit rock bottom his entire life, and he did it!! He finally did it!!
Plunging 500ft/min in the Deepsea Challenger, the Oscar-winning director found what he describes an "alien, very lunar and desolate" world at the Earth's lowest point.
It took him 2.5 hours to get down there. Then he enjoyed three hours of crazy exploration before a hydraulic leak caused him to ascend sooner than expected. On his way back up, he experienced "one heckuva ride" for 70 minutes!
Watch the exciting video above to get in on the non-fiction action URself!!!
