I already knew James Cameron was planning a 3D remake of Titanic. Now we officially know exactly when to expect Cameron’s next attempt to use his favorite technology.
Paramount and Fox, the studio who originally partnered to release Titanic in 1997, announced with Cameron today that the film will be in theaters on April 6, 2012, just 9 days before the 100th anniversary of the ship’s sinking.
Cameron said, “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.”
Personally, I’m not convinced this is a good idea. I’m one of those who have watched Titanic countless of times, but I’m also one of those who think that 3D is not for every movie. The 3D glasses may or may not add a new level, but it will certainly make the ship look giant.
I’m excited though, that Titanic will hit theaters again, for the new generation to watch.
