“I’ve been looking for years for an opportunity to put Titanic back on the big screen, because that’s really where it belongs,” says James Cameron, Titanic writer and director. The original film has been, according to Cameron “cleaned up” for the conversion to the 3D format.
Cinemablend’s Kelly West comments on the impact of nostalgia in returning viewers to the cinema to relive their original Titanic experiences. It will be interesting to see if the nostalgia factor has any impact on the reception of Titanic 3D especially for those who are seeing it for the first time, away from the hype of its original 1997 release.
I saw Titanic for the first time just recently. I think it’s weak and overrated in everything apart from the visuals. While the lush imagery of Titanic will undoubtedly shine on a 3D release, one hopes the film’s abysmal dialogue was also treated to a clean up. Or at the very least some paring down of the number of times Jack says “Rose”, and vice versa.
Titanic 3D will be released in April 2012, coinciding with the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of RMS Titanic.
