Near, far, wherever you are Titanic will be converted to 3D and released in 2012

07.06.2010

Oh TITANIC. It only seems like yesterday when those two crazy kids found love aboard that majestic ship.

It's not the last we've seen of it. If you've been pinning for a three-dimensional look of that big ass ship colliding against a glacier, then your prayers have been answered. In April of 2012, TITANIC will be converted to 3D and re-released for the masses to enjoy. This is in honor of the 100th anniversary of the ship's sinking.

Eh. How terribly unnecessary. I'm sure that's exactly how the survivors want to be remembered, with a crappy converted version of a really sappy movie. Don't get me wrong, that shit makes me cry, but the words "3D conversion" are scary. Maybe with James Cameron in charge it will look decent. However, that won't get me off my ass to go see it in theaters when it re-releases. I think the only TITANIC related thing I'm interested in would be the special features on a blu-ray. God knows when that's ever happening either.

This news came from an LA Times article on the 100th birthday of actress Gloria Stuart who played the elder Rose in the film. Cameron was there along with other celebrities to help Stuart blow out her candles. Stuart has been very close to Cameron and even played matchmaker between the director and his wife of 10 years, Suzy Amis (who played her Daughter in the film).

I remember people in middle school seeing this movie like 3 or 4 times in theaters, wonder how many times they'll see it in 3D?

I personally love Titanic and have always thought it's a fantastic story. I've never really understood the hate. Is it considering to be emasculating, to enjoy a movie centered around a love story or something? I found the movie to be pretty epic, but to each their own. As far as the 3D conversion goes, I'm slightly intrigued, but I'm just not sure what can really be enhanced. I can see a few scenes looking cool in 3D, but not the whole thing. We'll see. I would mainly like to own it on

James stupid ass Cameron really changed the movie business, and unfortunately for the worse :(

I don't see why so many are upset about this. It's his movie, who cares what he does with it? You DON'T have to see it. As for me, I think Titanic was a great movie, and I wouldn't mind seeing it on the big screen again. I know a lot of people who would see this again. Cameron has been saying that he was going to re-release it on the anniversary for years, so why does this surprise you? Cameron has also said that he calls post-conversion 3D "2.8D" and that he wouldn't do Titanic if he didn't

It's not like he doesn't understand that post-conversion isn't as good as real 3D.

If you think about it, this movie would be pretty fantastic in 3D.

I can't believe all the hate to the news. Even though Titanic would be considered a 'romance film' to obviously many of you, it's still a pretty bad ass film with amazing scenery and happenings surrounding that said romance. (Like Pearl Harbor-OH NO, MICHAEL BAY! I HATE MICHAEL BAY, BOO MICHAEL BAY, I WOULD RATHER DIE THAN SEE ANOTHER MICHAEL BAY FILM!) THat was my interpretation of many of you schmoes...lol.

Listen,

Listen, Cameron pretty much reinvented the 3D tech. Do you think this will be anything short of amazing and as well done as it could possibly be? Your problem is you are comparing the run of the mill hollywood people doing the 3D conversions to Cameron. It's like comparing beef to salad.

BEEF, it's what's for dinner.

Basic optics...

One camera cannot yield depth. Three-D requires two actual cameras, each operating like an eye. No matter HOW many computers you throw at something, you can't accurately generate the view of the ship from the view of a 2nd camera that WAS NOT THERE.

Fuck Cameron and fuck post-production 3-D conversions.

Keep buildin' up yr coffers Jim! You're gonna need it for the monumental film project that will beckon you in the near future. I believe it'll be called "The Hyksos" or "The Exodus"? Perhaps "James Cameron's : The Ten Commandments"?

Boycott 3D Conversions!

I really enjoyed Titanic, what a spectacle of a movie... but milking old movies in 3D must be stopped before it gets started, particularly when 3D conversion blows.

Just another way to make money for the studios instead of focusing on making good new movies.

i saw Titanic 5 times in the theater. 3 of those times were on dates though, one with the parents, & one with my sister & her then-husband.

As for the 3-D conversion.... meh.

interesting concidering that cameron has openly said that the conversion process is something that he doesnt like, i wonder if there is some sort of barganing going on and this was part of the deal. - and yeh loads of the other girls in my class went to see this over and over when it came out, i though it was cool, but ive always been more interested in the making of movies.

I just don't get it. The guy champions a new way to film in 3D and creates a new market for it. Now he takes his own movie and does what everyone else hates about the 3D: post-conversion. I just doesn't make any sense to me. And I like to think it's not for the money, but what else could it be. Fuck this.

Seems Unnecessary

Though I find myself watching it when it plays on TNT so who knows, I'm sure it will be successful.

I agree, is this really necessary? I mean Star Wars being converted to 3-D is inevitable but James Cameron's Titanic? I don't even know how to respond to this news.......

Jimmy "moneybags" Cameron showed the world how to do 3d right with Avatar. Now, he's gonna show the world how to do 3d conversions right with Titanic. It's just a shame I hate the friggin' movie...

Beleive it or not but I have never seen this movie. If I ever do though I will see it at home on my projector and not in a theater with 3D. Hard to believe Cameron was the guy that gave us Terminator and Aliens when I look at him today.

Ugh...I would have never thought that I would loathe the idea of 3D but with everything hitting theaters(aside from Twilight shockingly) being made into "3D" this doesn't surprise me. I do agree that the ominous 2012 date is not a coincidence

its a love film for goodness sake with in the setting of a sinking ship. What the fuck is there to make 3d?? Its a decent movie, i know its one of those cool things to bash this movie, but it is a pretty good flick. This is just nothing but greed at its finest.

3D & the 100th Anniversary? I think Titanic MIGHT take the Unadjusted record back from Avatar. A ticket for a 3D film will probably be $20-$23 by then.

I don't know, maybe I'd see it if I'm bored. I've never been to a 3D movie yet, except for the Theme Park ones. Cameron will make it look good.

Here is to hoping...

Maybe James Cameron is developing a new style of upconversion... I mean I doubt he will let that movie look like crap and he does have a few years to make good on the release date.

I'll admit it, I'm one of those guys who really like this movie. And even though I though Avatar was overrated, I enjoyed it for what it was, defending Cameron. But no more, the man has gone off the deep end. I can't imagine anyone getting remotely excited about Titanic in 3D. *#@% this idea.

I hope it fails. Massively.

Then maybe we can start making actual films again as opposed to expensive gimmicks and re-released expensive gimmicks.

In all honesty though, most films this summer have been completely underperforming...and I think that's awesome.

Why? Because they're all god awful or gimmicky or both. It'll be interesting to see if Toy Story 3 and Inception, two of the better films released thus far (critically at least) pull in a good amount of cash.

I really hope they do, and that 2010 marks the year that the general public started reading reviews and thinking about their trips to the theater instead of funding
