Director James Cameron, arguably the king of 3D, is planning to bring back Titanic, one of his biggest films. Here’s the catch, he’s bringing it back in 3D. Yep, that’s right, according to /Film, Titanic 3D will be hitting theatres April 2012.
Cameron has been talking about converting the film to 3D for a while now and this time it actually looks like it’s going to happen. Apparently the LA Times said that Cameron is:
“converting the blockbuster into 3-D for re-release in April 2012, the 100th anniversary of the ship’s sinking. ”
The only problem I can foresee with this is that in most cases, adding 3D after a film is released, usually makes the film look pretty crummy (Clash of the Titans). Although, Cameron is the man behind Avatar, the film that started the 3D trend, so hopefully he knows the technique and technology well enough to ensure Titanic looks good.
