Titanic 3D Trailer Sails Online
Iceberg! Right ahead! Again.

All right, this directorial tinkering about with films that are already hugely popular has got to stop. We’ve had Steven Spielberg making ET even more kiddie friendly. The Lion King roaring back in 3D, and don’t even get us started on George “doesn’t know the meaning of stop” Lucas and Star Wars. But now James Cameron is at it? Producing a newly recut version of Titanic in which the ship merely glances off the iceberg and sails right along without incident? Blasphemy! And also not true. Yes, Titanic is back. And yes, Cameron has once more pored over every shot in his careful fashion. But that was only so he could craft this new 3D version, the trailer for which is below.

 

Of course, you can’t actually see the 3D element in this trailer. And you can’t really appreciate the fine attention to detail that he and his crew have paid to every last shot so that the box office warhorse looks its best for the April re-release. But we got a look at 18 minutes of selected scenes last week and heard from the man himself about the effort that went into bringing Titanic back, so trust us when we say it’s shiny and deep. And we don’t just mean the chilly Atlantic Ocean.

 

But honestly: we can’t believe the trailer includes scenes of the ship sinking, at least not without a spoiler alert flashing first…

You can find out whether the heart really does go on and on when the film arrives back in cinemas on April 6. And good news for anyone who doesn't love 3D – it'll also be out in a sparkling new 2D version.

Blu Ray...
Why doesn't Cameron stop fannying around with this and put his efforts into bringing out 'The Abyss' on Blu Ray! Or 'The Terminator'.... Or 'True Lies' for that matter! He did a bang up job with the Blu Ray releases of Aliens and T2 so why doesn't he stop with all this 3D nonsense and sort it out. More

4-D
anyone who pays to watch this should be hosed in sea water ice at the cinema foyer, followed by a kick in the crotch, for that full "4-D" effect. More

RE: RE:
L: DancingClown L: Whistler Once again, there's absolutely no need for this to be in 3D. The ] Cameron put into converting it should've gone into his next movie, or something more worthwhile, because if there's nothing extra to be gained from most 3D releases, how will there possibly be anything extra from this? However, Titanic still remains a great film, and very worthy of a cinema re-release. Just, you know, in a nicely restored 2D format... e spent 18 dollars on this? More

and this rerelease is not at all an attempt to tie in with the 100 year aniversary of the sinking? More

This just proves one thing, that 3D is a purely to cash in on money and not to add anything to film quality of story telling! More

RE: Titanic 3D Trailer Sails Online
"A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets." If only 3D could paint over one of the most awful lines of dialogue I've ever heard. But it can't. What I fear it can do is exploit a terrible human tragedy. Can it make this guy even remotely believable? s guy I mean Tommy Ryan but Empire is not allowing me to upload his image for some reason)o. Surely one of the most painful national stereotypes ever committed to film. He may as well have been called Paddy McPaddyFiddle. But wh More

I can't wait, never saw big screen and haven't watched the film in five years. I actually think the film will gross a lot of money. It's being released around the Easter holidays, the 100 year anniversary will give it lots of coverage, fans from 1997/98 are now grown up with disposable income and will have nostalgia drawing them in. The film is so much better than /i] and even critics have to admit the film is crafted beautifully, the final shot gliding down the corridor and dissolvi More

RE: Titanic 3D Trailer Sails Online
I'll probably see this in 3D just to see how good a converted 3D movie can look. Since Cameron is so into the format I imagine he'd want to do the best job he can. Saying that, I wish this trailer had taken a leaf out of George Lucas' book when he did the trailer for TPM in 3D, and completely removed all traces of the worst part of the movie from the adverts. In that instance; Jar Jar Binks, in ] instance; Celine Dion! More
