Cameron's "Titantic" Launching In 3D

Further to Sneak Peek's report February 2011, Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment confirm that director James Cameron's "Titanic" will be re-released worldwide, in 3D, April 6, 2012, marking the 100th anniversary of the 'Titanic' setting sail.

Written, directed and produced by Cameron, "Titanic" is the second-highest grossing movie of all time, receiving a record 11 Academy Awards including 'Best Picture' and 'Best Director'.

The 3D conversion is being overseen by Cameron and his Lightstorm producing partner Jon Landau.

"There's a whole generation that's never seen 'Titanic' as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen," said Cameron. "And this will be 'Titanic' as you've never seen it before, digitally re-mastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D. With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike."

"Our 30-plus year relationship with Jim Cameron and Lightstorm has been enormously rewarding, from 'Aliens' to 'Avatar,'" said Fox Filmed Entertainment Chairmen and CEOs, Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman. "The global phenomenon of 'Titanic' remains one of the greatest sources of pride in our history. We are pleased to allow a new generation of audiences to experience the film in its brilliant digital restoration in 3D."
