Friendly ‘Ghosts’ haunt ‘Abyss’ bow

Cameron's 3-D footage takes center stage

HOLLYWOOD — Monday night’s preem of James Cameron’s Titanic docu “Ghosts of the Abyss” turned into a reunion for stars from the filmmaker’s biggest blockbusters.

Edward Furlong, Gloria Stuart, Michael Biehn, Lance Henriksen, and Bill Paxton, who serves as the doc’s main narrator, visited with the king-of-the-world director himself during the after-party at Rumba Room on CityWalk.

Yet Cameron’s 3-D footage took center stage.

“He took it (3-D) out of the gimmicky world and set it in reality,” said an almost giddy Robert Rodriguez, who is using similar technology in “Spy Kids 3.”

Cameron admitted being “obsessed with filmmaking, archaeology, diving, the story of the Titanic, and history. In this film, I get to combine them all,” he said. “What could be better than that?”

Also browsing about were Dick Cook, Jon Voight, Tom Arnold, Stan Winston, “T3” helmer Jonathan Mostow and Jessica Alba.
