— The movie "Titanic," was certainly a blockbuster. Now producer James Cameron explores the world's most famous shipwreck in a big-screen documentary and a new Web site.

James Cameron and his brothers are making "Titanic" even more real with a new 3-D IMAX documentary. Cameron's brother, David, has created a Web site,

, that brings the adventure to you, complete with images and sound.

"When I was young, Titanic was a legend. It was a myth. It wasn't until I saw it with my own eyes that it became real," said Cameron.

Cameron and his crew developed a new camera system that will allow IMAX patrons to see Titanic inside and out in 3-D as though they were there.

Cameron, along with a Russian research ship and its two underwater rovers, used special camera-equipped robots to roam the massive wreck, which went down in 1912.

The Web site follows the crew of "Ghosts of the Abyss" through their remarkable journey.
