Titanic 3D Planned For April 6, 2012
DiCaprio and co re-set sail next year

Way back in 2009, we chatted to James Cameron at that year’s Comic-Con when he was out pimping a little movie called Avatar. He told us then that he was all excited about having completed a 90-second test clip of one of his other slightly successful flicks, Titanic, in 3D, and that he had plans to convert the entire movie for a future release. Well, the future is now, folks! Or rather, it’s April 6 next year, which is when the RMS Titanic will once again sail into trouble on cinema screens.

The planned worldwide premiere is significant for several reasons, not the least of which is that 2012 marks the centennial of the giant vessel’s fateful voyage, and April 10 was the date the ship first set off. It’s also 15 years since the film was released to huge success and, eventually, 11 Academy Awards.

"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 release announcing the 3D release date. "And this will be Titanic as you've never seen it before, digitally remastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D." Part of us still sort of wants Terminator 2 instead. What say you, Mr Jim?

RE: Titanic 3D Planned For April 6, 2012
I dont think it will necessarily make lots of money. ET was hugely popular in the 80s and it didnt do so well in re-release. Something like the Wizard of Oz, Star Wars or the Godfather had more cultural impact-being quoted, parodied nonstop--but Titanic doesnt seem to have that kind of currency. I wonder if its initial release coincided with changes in international movie distribution that may account in part for its wild international success (where even old men on Indian mountains had seen it More

Re-released to cash in on the anniversary of a tragedy. Classy move, Fox. More

L: Spaldron I'm sorry Mods but how on earth can a spammer rack up 33 posts in one night without you noticing? Because it's a bot, they come en masse from the main site at the same time, NOT within the forum, and we don't sit here waiting because this isn't a paid service. This isn't something Mods are going to fix - Bauer Media need to start thinking about some basic registration stuff virtually every other site has. More

Converting normal films to 3D is as bad as colourising black and white films.   STOP THIS MADNESS. More
