Last year we mentioned that Titantic would be re-released in 3D, and now a date has finally been set for April 6, 2012.
The release date coincides with the 100th anniversary of the ill-fated ship embarking on its voyage from England. 2012 is also the 100th anniversary of Paramount Studios, who partnered with Twentieth Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment to release the film.
“There’s a whole generation that’s never seen Titanic as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen,” said Cameron in a press release. “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.”
Titanic tells the story of two star-crossed lovers, Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet), who meet on the maiden voyage of the “Unsinkable Ship.”
