Titanic Will Be Re-released in 3D Worldwide on April 6th 2012

May 19th, 2011 · 13 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos

Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment have just announced that James Cameron’s movie TITANIC will be re-released in 3D worldwide on April 6th in 2012. The release date marks the 100th anniversary of the Titanic setting sail (April 10th) and 2012 is also the 100th anniversary of the Paramount and of course we are talking about a 2D to 3D conversion of the original movie, not re-shooting it in 3D. The new “3D” version of Titanic will be digitally re-mastered at 4K and converted to 3D, and knowing how James Cameron loves to take the time to make things properly and loves precision of details we can expect a very convincing conversion. But we’ll have to wait and see what will James Cameron present with this conversion of Titanic and will it be able to make for 2D to 3D movie conversions what Avatar did for the 3D movies…

So what is your opinion on that and would you go and watch Ttianinc re-released in 3D next year?

    May be in 3D the viewers will finally realize that it was actually the Olympic that went down.

    havent seen a conversion I like at all yet. Star wars is coming out in 3d too, so maybe one of these will show what the best 2d to 3d conversion can do. I have very little faith.

    last movie i saw in 3d at movie theater was avatar. for the most part the 3d effect barely did anything and bothered me. has 3d in movie theaters gotten better over time? has it gotten close to the quality of nvidia 3d vision

    It will never be like nVidia becasue of totally distorted geometry due to parallax optimization.
    With nVidia’s IO and toe-in control one get get fully realistic immersion in 3D scene without compromises.

    Never was a huge Titanic fan, but it was certainly a good movie. I’m sure Cameron will do a good job on the conversion. Just saw Priest in the theaters, and the 3D conversion was very good. Of course, you can only do so much, but it can look nice.

    I would love to see a 3D conversion of the Lord of the Rings trilogy if someone took their time and did it right.

    Does someone have information about the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie? Converted 3D? Directly shot in 3D? Good/Bad 3D?

    Mathew, I read a text that explained how different stereo camera rigs affected the geometry and found it very interesting, but now I can’t find it anymore. Could you please recommend me a text that covers the subject?

    Pirates of the Caribbean is real 3D, not a conversion. I’ve seen it in threaters last wednesday and looked really awesome in 3D, worth watching it.

    I’m super excited about this movie !!! I was one year old when this movie came out, so i really never got a chance to watch it in a movie theatre. Its probably gonna do well, just because its a classic and a lot of people want to watch it again. Just one question. Are you absolutely SURE that this movie is releasing WORLDWIDE on the 6th of April, coz I live in India, so yeah.
