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.
I love this movie! I can't wait for the 3d version...gonna be epic!
WHY is this being done??? WHY WHY?? Next I guess they'll do Psycho in 3D.
I hope Cameron adds all the deleted scenes that were shown in the 3 disc set a few years ago.
Lucy Thai and/or Jada Fire in 3D? Now there is something worth watching.
Regarless if a movie was shot with 3D equipment like Avatar it still needs 3d conversion...like Avatar... It's funny how some of you call conversion fake but if you watch any of these movies you can't tell the difference, to help you out in this...if it hurts your eyes watching a certain shot it was more than likely shot with 3d cameras, if it doesn't then it was converted, they pay close attention to this, while shooting with 3d cameras you are limited.
why does everything need to be in 3D now? am i really the only one who doesn't see the appeal? obviously i am.
You're not alone sarah, its just a gimmick so they can charge more. It makes sense for some stuff but why is The Great Gatsby remake in 3D?
Man... can't we get a 3d terminator first?
No more political talk, last time I checked there was nothing about Presidents in the movie. Maybe the 3D version is different
Anyone else catch the Obama statment, what an idiot that person is. Oh yes George W is still stealing oil money. Oh speaking of breaking the law didn't he get a DUI, and I believe his lovely wife got drunk and hit someone. Very nice!! Someone to model your life after.
Since the film was never initially shot in 3D, won't the 3D effects in this recycled version suck??
Holy hell... Everyone associated with creating this needs to be shot. Those people excited about it also need to be shot.
Why? James Cameron, you suck!
I thought James Cameron didn't like 2D converted to 3D. He sure complained a lot about it. I guess it's alright when it's his movie. What a waste.
Is he kidding?
The movie is only 14 years old as it is, not a generation.
Do you really need more money Cameron?
I hope he gets the best part of the movie right for 3D .... a naked Kate Winslet!
Other than that .... boooooring ....next.
They need to make some Most Extreme Elimination Challenge in 3D.
Would much rather see an episode of Dangerous Catch in 3D.
MY DOODIE IS MULTICOLORED ! IT IS MULITICULTUTAL LIKE THE UNITED STATES.
Where is the iceberg for this idea?????
Awesome: the bodies will all be falling onto our laps.
made my f–king day man! laughed till they thought i was crazy! thanks for that awesome
made my f–king day man! thanks for that awesome. laughed till they thought i was crazy! tgif!
The Kate Winslet nude scene was originally filmed in 34B.
Taking a film that was shot entirely in 2D, and converting it to some faux 3D, reminds me of when they take a classic black and white film and colorize it (or Turner-ize it).
Am I one of the few who thought this movie had just a terrible script? "You see people, Jack", "I see you". Kate's fiance chasing Jack with a gun. People who would normally never have anything to do with each other falling in deep love in 2 days. The list goes on.
Gawdawful. I remember laughing in the theatre at how bad it was. But I seemed to be the only one (other than my wife, who was right there with me).
Technically a marvel, but come on the love story theme was a complete joke.
I'll wait for 4d.
I heard that in the end the ship sinks.
Hey where's the spoiler alert?! Gah...now whats the point in watching it.
I wish they'd re-do all the computer generated graphics. The shots of the ship with people walking around the deck were just so-so at the time, and look really stilted now. Computer graphics have come a long way since then. I've never thought "digitally added 3D" added enough of a 3D effect to be worthwhile, but if they re-did the computer graphics to present day standards, that would be worth watching!
Oh great, now people can hear her say Jack's name over and over again in 3D!!
Let me spoil the movie for you – the ship sinks in the end.
Next comes the interactive version where they spray the audience with freezing cold water and throw ice cubes at them.
Yay! I get to hear "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine on the big screen again!
Yeah, and this time you get to hear it in 3d!!! So its like celine is all around!!!! I'M KING OF THE 3D WORLD!!!!!! Oh crap.... good thing the world ends tomorrow, I won't have to be subjected to that again!
Please post more press releases verbatim!
I thought the original movie was pretty one-dimensional.
I'm so excited about this! I remember going to see it back in '97 when I was in 2nd grade; my family and I went and saw it 4 times in theatres. It'll be great to see if it has the same impact on this generation as it did on me
laughs @ John, why is there always someone like you? anyway, no need to be stressing over him, he's keeping this interesting lol
3D not if that ship was going down I would snarl every goober insight and let those fuudgepacking idiots ream me a new hole.
This can join religion and sarah palin as things that are unnecesary.
I love leo so 2-d 3-d or 4-d im all for it oh and i met him 2 so charming in person
Wonder if they'll make this one with an alternate ending...
I'll only watch it to see Kate Winslett's nude scene in 3D
Gee....I hope I don't ruin anything.......but the boat sinks at the end!
Well like the one dude said, it's not the same..but I thought the dark knight was number 2? I won't be watching unless my wife wants to be one of the idiots going to pay to watch lol
Spoiler alert: It sinks......
Hey Snooky! My thoughts, exactly !
THE SHIP STILL SINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yea... but have you ever seen it sink in 3D? ;) The only people that did were the ones that were there! lol
Don't ruin it for the rest of us!
But if the world ends this Saturday, I'm totally gonna miss it! NOOOOO!!!!!! Now my whole life has been a wasted on waiting for the 3D version.
Yes, please go back to Fox News, sounds like a perfect place for u! That's where all the idiots hang.
Movies not originally shot with stereoscopic equipment will never have the 3D quality of those which did. It is a lame attempt to generate reveue from an old shoe. But hey, that's good business. You'll not find me wasting a single breath watching it.
Even with stereoscopic cameras, 3D doesn't really add much to the movie. The only movies I've seen that have really been enhanced by 3D have all been CGI...
REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEALLY???!! Honey, that ship has sailed and sunk!
SI. Doodie es muy buuuueeeeeeno !
YEAH ! John is a doodoo toucher ! He got in trouble at school last week for making a bowl out of doodie instead of modeling clay. He didnt get to go outside at recess.
School must be out today.
You're here so it must be true. Don't let your mommy catch you playing with the big kids.
This would be very interesting and exciting, were it not for this whole end of the world thing. Too bad, I would have loved to see this movie..
Yeah, and I really they should have moved the Harry Potter opening forward, just in case.
Hey, no one is forcing you to see this movie again. They're trying to make mone and it's honest work. It's better than the way Obama makes money.
Smith Barney used to have a commercial were they said, "We make money the old fashioned way. We Earrrrrn it.!" Obama's commercial would say, "We make money the King George way. We "Takkkke it!"
Congrats on being the idiot of the day. You're not even rich, you probably benefit the most from him.
I love when Brobama takes back OUR money from the white man.
amazing, an article about showing a film in 3d and you make it political. idiot.
Me or john? He started it, my comment was meant to be a reply to him. And anyway,
"Everything is politics." -Thomas Mann
No, it isn't. It's people who inject politics into everything, whether it belongs there or not. This was an article about a film being re-released in 3D. President Obama didn't direct it, wasn't in it and may have never seen it. Be a troll somewhere else, please.
How can you argue with the wisdom of Thomas Mann? The guy was a genius and hated nazis. What is trolling anyway?
The figure drawing class ought to be interesting in 3D.
I was thinking the same thing! Can't wait for 3D &**&!@%!
Whether it's George Lucas or James Cameron, they will continue to rehash old, tired material in order to milk more money from the idiots.
Where's your 2nd highest grossing movie? Consider me one of the idiots..
OK then. You're an idiot!
@ adrian GMV
dont let amazingly enough fool ya, they're an idiot too
George Lucas and James Cameron has made some great movies, tho they do run them into the ground....
Gawd, it was bad enough in 2D!!!!!!
You have no taste!
No way, it was an awesome movie!
I sure hope you are being facecious. Otherwise you are one sick person. To trivialize a tragedy like that only goes to show why the human race is in so much trouble. Perhaps we should throw you in a tank of water at 29 degrees F and see how the experience works for you!
I hope the Oscar goes to whomever is cast as the iceberg.
@Larry.....Were talking about a movie?
Larry. Im doodee-ing in 3D!!
The only part I would want to see in 3D is Kate Winslet's nude scene.
Only problem is it will be DITIGAL created 3d AKA fake 3d.
If a movie is not FILMED in 3d it should not EVER be marketed as being 3d.
it is bad enough ones filmed in 3D do it badly, the fake 3d ruins the whole market
Honestly, Larry! The deaths were already trivialized anyway by a Hollywood blockbuster being made out of the story! The only point of re-releasing it in 3-D is obvioulsy MORE MONEY, not exactly honoring the dead. Pullease.
So fat naked girl in 3D. Plenty of that in real life. And shut up Larry. Go cry into a pillow if you're so upset about a bunch of people who would be dead by now even if their fancy boat had not smashed into some ice and sunk.
HAHAhahahaha... eunis... I love you!
Forget the Drownings... Bring on the 3d tatas make you want to reach out a grab em..
My name is Larry and I take everything personal. Pleas stop making jokes about the Roman Empire, its insensitive.
Awesome, can't wait....!! Thinking the same thing.
I would like to see Larry commit suicide in 3D that would be awesome, so that we can joke with out all the politically correct idiots out there, because Political Corectness is as a logical as the existence of Heaven. I am sure Larry is out there waiting for the rapture to happen tommorrow.
What's wrong with you? How can anyone say that Kate Winslet is fat? She's beautiful! What a moron you are!
Larry~~The people who have made the sad comments in reference to yours only confirm your statement. Ignore them.
You spelled facetious wrong, the fact that no one noticed is also a good indicator of the human races nosedive into the john.
Yes this should great all the way in and out of water
