    Default 3D version of James Cameron's 'Titanic' gets official release date

    3D version of James Cameron's 'Titanic' gets official release date

    By Dave Lewis - Re-issue arrives two months after 3D re-release of 'Star Wars: Episode 1"





    'Titanic'

    Remember "Titanic" mania? When your 12-year-old sister saw the film in the theater over and over and over again? When people couldn't stop yelling "I'm king of the world!" every thirty seconds? Now we can do it all again -- in 3D!

    James Cameron's epic Oscar-winner "Titanic" (it picked up something like 812 Academy Awards) will be re-released in a brand new 3D version worldwide on April 6, 2012 by Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment.

    The date coincides with the 100th anniversary of the Titanic setting sail from England (April 10, 1912). Kinda morbid.

    This is just two months after the George Lucas-supervised 3D-converted re-release of the first of six "Star Wars" films. "Star Wars: Episode 1 -- The Phantom Menace" hits theaters February 10, 2012.

    "Titanic's" 3D conversion is currently being overseen by Cameron and his Lightstorm producing partner Jon Landau.

    With "Titanic" sailing along as the second highest grossing movie of all time (No. 1 would be Cameron's 3D groundbreaker "Avatar"), the re-release (with higher ticker prices, natch) will ensure that Cameron continues to dominate worldwide box office records for some time.

    "Titanic," of course, is about an inter-class love affair between Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, set against the back drop if the infamous maritime disaster in which 1,517 people died.

    "There's a whole generation that's never seen 'Titanic' as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen," said Cameron in a press release. "And this will be 'Titanic' as you've never seen it before, digitally re‐mastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D. With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike."

    "This new presentation of Paramount’s top-grossing film is particularly special because 2012 is the 100th anniversary of our studio," said Paramount CEO Brad Grey. "Paramount has had the pleasure of introducing audiences to some of the all-time classics of cinema during that century of moviemaking and we cannot think of a better way to mark the occasion than with this re-release of 'Titanic.'"

    "Our 30‐plus year relationship with Jim Cameron and Lightstorm has been enormously rewarding, from 'Aliens' to 'Avatar,' and the global phenomenon of 'Titanic' remains one of the greatest sources of pride in our history," added Fox execs Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman. "We are pleased to allow a new generation of audiences to experience the film in its brilliant digital restoration in 3D.”

    Di Caprio will also be seen in 3D in Baz Luhrmann's upcoming "Great Gatsby" adaptation, co-starring Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Isla Fisher and Joel Edgerton.

    As for Cameron, he's slowly ramping up a sequel to "Avatar."

    This is necessary why? Do we really need to see that little old couple lay down to die in 3D, really?

    Cool

    Yeah, because we haven't seen enough of this movie already. It's a great movie, but seriously? Releasing the 3D version on the 100th anniversary of the tragedy? Exploit much, Cameron?

    It's not going to make the crappy screenplay any better.

    I feel like Hollywood is seriously stretching, I mean obviously they have been for a few years now but, really? Do we really need to start re-releasing shit in 3D?

    With that said, I really love this movie. I don't care what ya'll say.

    I hate 3D I especially hate movies that only come out in 3D, because I don't have any depth perception, and I can't see it. (At best, they're blurry. At worst, it's like a bad acid trip in Dolby stereo.) I have to wait for the DVD. And I know I'm not the only person in the world with that problem.

    Sad thing is, it will probably make a gizillion dollars.
    James Cameron needs to be tossed off a ship into the Atlantic. I wuld pay to see that in 3d.

    I'd even pay the 3D & IMAX fee for that!

    There was supposed to be a director's cut at one point, where Cameron promised that the added bits would address some of the film's numerous shortcomings. Guess not.

    I hate this movie. Hate. Hate. Hate. I especially hate the idea of it in 3D.

    James Cameron should stay away from historical tragedies.

    I loathed this movie. Piece of crap.
