James Cameron’s Titanic coming out in 3D

20 May 2011

Just in time for the 100th anniversary of Titanic sinking comes the Academy Award-winning film on 3D.

Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox have announced that Titanic, starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, will be re-released in cinemas on 6 April 2012. The film was originally released in 1997.

The Belfast-built Titanic set sail on its maiden voyage on 10 April 1912. Five days later, the passenger ship hit an iceberg and sank in the Atlantic Ocean, claiming more than 1,500 lives.

Titanic had been on its way to New York after leaving Southampton, England.

The film, Cameron said, was “painstakingly” converted to 3D and promises “an epic experience”.
