'Titanic' in 3-D gets release date

titanic

A 3-D re-release of James Cameron’s Titanic will sail in to theaters April 6, 2012. The release celebrates the 100th anniversary of the ship’s historic first and last voyage. “There’s a whole generation that’s never seen Titanic as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen,” Cameron said in a statement. “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.”

“This new presentation of Paramount’s top-grossing film is particularly special because 2012 is the 100th anniversary of our studio,” said Brad Grey, chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures. “Paramount has had the pleasure of introducing audiences to some of the all-time classics of cinema during that century of moviemaking and we cannot think of a better way to mark the occasion than with this re-release of Titanic.”

    Titanic came out 14 years ago and James Cameron is still milking it. Until recently, he was still milking Avatar as well. Anyone who goes to see this is living in the past.
    He has got to be the greediest man in Hollywood. All those billions of dollars are not enough for him and he is still not satisfied.
    You don’t see Nolan and Abrams milking Batman and Star Trek.

    • Cris

      He learned from the master of greed … George Lucas

    • Meg

      Yeah, that’s why INCEPTION didn’t use “from the director of The Dark Knight” in the marketing at all…;-)

      • whatevs

        That’s obviously a marketing strategy, but he’s not coming up with ways to get people to spend even more money.

      • joblo

        You’re being pretty naive there, whatevs. That’s what MARKETING IS.

      • tony

        LOL Thanks, joblo. The whole purpose of marketing is to get people to spend money. As many people as possible.

      Let me guess, You’re one of those “From those with means to those with needs” kind of people, right?

    • @Kagan

      You are obviously a teen or pre-teen sitting in your room in your parents’ house who thinks you know everything, when in actuality, you don’t. If you weren’t, you’d know the master of milking franchises is George Lucas. The original Star Wars came out 34 years ago and he’s still milking it with an upcoming tv series. In fact, he has done next to nothing other than Star Wars in the last 34 years, other than milk his other franchise: Indiana Jones.

    • james

      Here’s and idea, if you don’t want to spend your money to see it, then don’t. Don’t bash someone for trying to make more money. Wealth envy is so sad, grow up.

  • Phillip

    “You don’t see Nolan and Abrams milking Batman and Star Trek.”

    Exactly. That’s why they declined to have anything to do with the sequels to those films. Oh, wait….

  • Johnny

    Super excited for this!!! I am too young to have seen the film in theatres, and I look forward to this!

  • Titanic

    I am so excited to see this movie. I never saw it in theaters, and when I watched it on VHS two years ago I fell in love with it. Titanic is now my favorite movie, and I am a part of the “generation” to which Cameron is referring. I don’t care if this is just a way to take advantage and make a lot of money, I just want to see this movie in theaters.

    • Bill

      So what if he is “taking advantage” of audiences? When have commercial film directors ever released films NOT to make money? TITANIC is amazing and I can’t wait to see it back on a big screen!

  • Anne

    “Anyone who goes to see this is living in the past.”

    Or…they are too young to have seen the film on the big screen, and since it is a film classic with close to 2 billion dollars at the box office and ELEVEN OSCAR wins (including Best Picture and Best Director), maybe they just wanna experience it in a grand way? You must be a typical Nolan Batloonie…are you jealous cuz Cameron has the top two grossing films of all time, and Nolan has never been nominated for Best Director, let alone win, like Cameron did?

  • Jen

    The word “celebrates” might not be the best one to use here considering the outcome of the voyage. A little tact please.

    • @Jen

      Jen, go back to your knitting,your cats,and your eating vanilla frosting out of the can.

    • @Jen

      The word “celebrating” does not inherently mean party, joy, debauchery and happiness. Although most people associate the term with those things I mentioned, to celebrate something is simply to mark a significant event with a social gathering (which may or may not include musis, etc) and to remember that event with respect and/or deference.

      • chuckyourselv

        commemorate’s the work you douche bags are looking for.

  • Scott

    Is it just me or is “The release celebrates the 100th anniversary of the ship’s historic first and last voyage” a poor choice of words? And nothing says excitement like watching people plummet to their death and drown in 3-D!

    • @Scott

      Moron.

      Why can’t people read a little and once in a while look up words in a dictionary?

      • Scott

        Can the GREAT ONE please give me the definition of “musis”? Since you are such a master of the dictionary you should know how to spell music.
        Why can’t people read and edit their own comments once in a while?

      • @Scott

        At least mine was a typo. Your mistake was totally misusing a word that even a 10-year-old would know how to use in proper context.

      • Scott

        How did I misuse the word? I asked if it was a poor choice of words. Even in your response you said, “Although most people associate the term with those things I mentioned [party, excitement, joy, debauchery and happiness]…”. If “most people” are going to read this a certain way, then could there be a better way to say it?

  • John T.

    I’d love to watch it again on the big screen, but not in 3-D, come on!

    • nana

      amen! Please re-release it in 2d, the true original!!! I frakking hate 3d.

  • JAM

    Just what we need right now in this economy, an uplifting story about tragedy that will cost you $16+ to “enjoy” it in 3D.

  • bob

    A sequel isn’t milking a movie. It’s continuing the story. Milking is when you keep reissuing the same film and call it something different, and are profiting from it. A la Star Wars and all 12 versions of it. And Titanic and soon Avatar is next

    • tony

      LMAO!!! A sequel is not milking a film?? Why do you think they greenlight sequels in the first place? To milk popular properties, duh!

  • Alicia

    I am probably the biggest fan of Titanic ever. I can tell you all he lines in the movie from beginning to end. But I mean…really? Classics like E.T. don’t keep re-releasing right? That would take the magic away. I won’t see it, because my memory of Titanic is in the theater in 1997, crying about how good Titanic was. I don’t want my memory of the movie to be in 2012 in the theater just staring at the screen. That takes away the magic. Come on Cameron!

    • twitter.com/SimbiAni

      @ “biggest fan ever” How can you claim to be such an epic fan of anything if “the magic” isn’t there every. single. time. that you watch such a favorite? Regardless of when & where? But fine, if this experience won’t be for you- that’s your choice. I just don’t get how you can also act like “classic” movies shouldn’t ever be re-released just because YOU would prefer not to make any new memories around them. As the article quotes, it would give ppl who’ve never got a chance to see it on the big screen, a new chance to experience it in the way they would most like to. As someone who didn’t get to see a LOT of my top favorite movies ever back when they were first released- even being from “their generation”!- I’m personally *very* glad for these re-releases! I can only hope that it continues with more of my faves! xoxoxo

      • Pavan

        it looked as good as navtiely-shot 3D films). And you’re right, Cameron closely supervised the conversion process.People will have to wait and see if this 3D conversion is as good as Cameron touts it as. If it’s any comfort, people who don’t want to see the 3D version can opt to see it in 2D.

  • ChrisV

    Alicia, it’s funny you mentioned ‘E.T.,’ because that movie WAS rereleased, and they altered some scenes! Guns were removed from hands, and were replaced by walkie-talkies!

    I have no problem with this re-release whatsoever. As noted, there is a whole generation that hasn’t seen this in theaters. Regardless of what you think of the director, the movie won a LOT of Academy Awards for a REASON.

    • underthefan

      I am psyched!! Can’t wait for April 6!

  • Dana

    Dear Paramount…you aren’t the only one with a 100 year anniversary next year. Maybe THE SHIP’S sinking anniversary would be a better tribute for a re-release than the studio. Ego.

  • Dustu chele moinul
