“Titanic” 3D Coming in April 2012
The Titanic could rise again in April 2012 when the blockbuster film is re-released in 3D. Paramount, Fox, and Lightstorm Entertainment are considering bringing the movie back to theaters in 2012, this time in 3D.
“Titanic,” the second highest grossing film of all time behind director James Cameron’s other blockbuster “Avatar,” would be the second major film to rerelease in 3D in 2012 after George Lucas announced the entire “Star Wars” series was getting the 3D treatment. The conversion to 3D would cost anywhere between $10 and $15 million and Cameron and the studios will be looking to get the film into as many 3D theaters as possible.
Paramount is reportedly targeting April because April 15, 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the ship’s sinking. That month in 2012 also marks the 100th anniversary for Paramount.
