3D Myth Busters: James Cameron and Vince Pace on the Business of 3D
Co-founders James Cameron and Vince Pace share the secrets that enable them to meet any 3D production need, from small to large. Come see how this team is focused on the business of 3D.
Titanic is sailing back into theaters around the world April 6, 2012. James Cameron's movie is getting rereleased in 3D via Paramount Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment. The date was chosen to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the ship setting sail (April 10).
"There's a whole generation that's never seen Titanic as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen," Cameron said. "And this will be Titanic as you've never seen it before, digitally remastered 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."
On Monday Night IBC's Big Screen is showing an 18-minute reel from James Cameron’s Titanic 3D. This special preview was created from the box office record breaking and multi Oscar winning original movie and demonstrates the state of the art in both image re-mastering and 2D to 3D conversion technology.
The full movie is currently scheduled for release in the Spring 2012 to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
Paramount chairman/CEO Brad Grey noted that the rerelease coincides with the 100th anniversary of the studio, while Fox Filmed Entertainment chairmen/CEOs Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman added that Titanic is "one of the greatest sources of pride" in studio history.
Titanic -- which stars Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio -- is the second-highest-grossing movie of all time, behind Cameron's Avatar.
The movie, which was nominated for a record 14 Oscars and won a record 11 Oscars was first released in 1997.
