Not quite done yet, but it's more a listing of things that are mostly obtainable from the various DVD extras, with very little spice thrown in. Not too exciting a read to be quite honest; a bit too glossy. But then I had been expecting 'Skywalking', but for Cameron.

"The Futurist" confirms my suspicion: James Cameron is the Howard Hughes of our generation, minus the mental illness.

My favorite story from "The Futurist" so far takes place during the 1988 filming of "The Abyss."

James Cameron is directing a scene underwater wearing a helmet. He runs out of oxygen, so he takes off the helmet and swims toward the surface. A diver grabs Cameron, and forces him to use a broken oxygen tank, then gets PUNCHED IN THE FACE by Cameron. The diver is fired that day, while Cameron goes right back down below water to continue filming.
