James Cameron goes down with the ship, again, in "Aliens of the Deep," his latest 3-D IMAX extravaganza. The "Titanic" director, who previously married his loves of filmmaking and underwater exploration in the 2003 documentary "Ghosts of the Abyss," takes his high-tech toys and a team of scientists and dives deep one more time.

Word of the Day
postliminy
  • In Roman antiquity, the return of a person who had been banished, or taken prisoner by an enemy, to his old condition and former privileges.
  • In international law, that right by virtue of which persons and things taken by an enemy in war are restored to their former status when coming again under the power of the nation to which they belonged.
The word 'postliminy' comes from a Latin word meaning 'threshold'.
