The much-anticipated 3-D version of James Cameron's "Titanic" will officially sail into theaters on April 6, 2012.
According to a statement from Paramount, the release date for the revamped edition of the Leonardo DiCaprio-Kate Winslet blockbuster was chosen to mark the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's voyage, which began April 10.
"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 re-mastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D," Cameron says of the 1997 film. "With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike."
"Titanic" is the second highest-grossing movie of all time, raking in over $600 million in the U.S. and $1.2 billion overseas.
