Overview
Far below the surface in the mid-Pacific, U.S. officials have isolated what may be the greatest discovery in human history. They've found a huge spacecraft that plunged into the depths — 300 years ago.

What is the spacecraft's origin? Could there still be living intelligence aboard? Dustin Hoffman, Sharon Stone and Samuel L. Jackson portray members of an elite underwater team charged with finding the answers in Sphere, the deep-water, deep-suspense science-fiction adventure that shapes a new dimension in thrills. And it brings the underwater squad face to face with a mysterious terror as near as their own thoughts.
