‘Titanic’ Going 3-D [VIDEO]
I’m not sure what to think about this one. “Titanic” was a great movie to begin with, in my opinion because it really did happen in history. I like seeing films and shows about history. I find them interesting, and try to imagine what it was like. I didn’t want you to think that I enjoy watching people die. Not at all. It’s the idea that the story did happen. Well, if the original ‘Titanic’ wasn’t epic enough already, we’re going one step further. Paramount announced Thursday that it will re-release the Oscar-winning drama on April 6, 2012 … in 3-D.
In a statement, the film’s director, James 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 3-D. With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike.”
The film’s re-release will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, the real thing, which went down on April 15, 1912. 2012 also marks the 100-year anniversary of Paramount Pictures.
Released in December 1997, ‘Titanic’ went on to win a record-setting 11 Oscars and grossed over $1 billion, worldwide.
I wonder if Hollywood is running out of ideas. I’m not sure if this is a movie I’d like to see in 3-D.
I believe my daughter, Valerie saw the movie 12 times. Can’t wait to see if she’ll go to see the 3-d version. Are you planning to go see it?
