TITANIC 3D Will Crash (Back) Into Theaters On April 6, 2012
As a way to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s maiden (and only) voyage, James Cameron will release TITANIC back into theaters on April 6, 2012. Only this time – brace yourselves Titanic fans – the film will be in 3D!
The Hollywood Reporter states that Cameron will oversee the 3D conversion as well as his partner Jon Landau, who produced the film with Cameron (who also wrote and directed the film). Titanic will be rereleased by Paramount Pictures, Lightstorm Entertainment, and 20th Century Fox.
According to Cameron: “There’s a whole generation that’s never seen Titanic as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen. And this will be Titanic as you’ve never seen it before, digitally remastered 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.”
Not going to lie – I’m a big fan of Titanic, saw it 13 times in the theater when it was released in 1997. Which, if you do the math, adds up to… well… a lot of wasted hours of my life. But hey, I was 15 and in love with Leonardo DiCaprio.
That being said, even as an avid fan, I’m not sure that I’ll be revisiting Jack and Rose on their journey to New York. What are your thoughts Titanic fans? Will you see the new 3D version or have you had enough of the doomed ship?
