Titanic 3D's London Premiere
Cameron & Winslet reunited

Prior to its release in 1997, the prevailing wisdom had it that you're as like have angels fly outta yer arse as see Titanic back on the big screen 15 years later, and in 3D. How times change, both for the film and the format. Titanic became the biggest film of all time* and the stereoscopic version premiered in London last night to huge excitement.

The premiere last night, in the somehow appropriate surroundings of the Royal Albert Hall, saw James Cameron, Billy Zane and Kate Winslet reunite to show that, far across the spaces and distance between them, their collective heart goes on. So that's nice. It was good, too, to see that Cameron wasn't suffering any agoraphobia after his record-breaking trip to the lowest point on the Earth's surface when he descended the Marianas Trench last weekend.

For those feeling nostalgic about the film, we've thrown in a couple of pictures from Titanic's original 1997 premiere below.

Titanic 3D is out on April 6. To pass your time in the meantime, may we suggest life-drawing classes, swimming lessons and/or a course in safer ship design?

*At least until its director made another feature.

RE: titanic
Glad to see the crew reunited. The 3D Revolution is undoubtedly the most important cinematic innovation since the development of sound, but these "converted" 3D films - even with Cameron's direct involvement - are to my mind as anti revolutionary as the worst most carelessly "converted" run of the mill blockbuster. You cannot convert a 2D image to a 3D one. You can slice and separate the layers of an image in a computer, creating a moving motion picture diorama display, but without on set More
