Titanic in 3D Coming in April 2012

Set to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Titanic's launch on its final tragic voyage, Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment will be releasing the second biggest grossing film on record, Titanic, back in theaters on April 6, 2012 (James Cameron's Avatar holds the number one spot). However, this time around audiences will be able to watch the ship sink in 3D.
Writer/director/producer Cameron and his producing partner Jon Landauare overseeing the 3D conversion. In a statement announcing the release date, Cameron said, "There's a whole generation that's never seen Titanic as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen. And this will be Titanic as you've never seen it before, digitally re-mastered 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."
"This new presentation of Paramount's top-grossing film is particularly special because 2012 is the 100th anniversary of our studio. Paramount has had the pleasure of introducing audiences to some of the all-time classics of cinema during that century of moviemaking and we cannot think of a better way to mark the occasion than with this re-release of Titanic," stated Brad Grey, Chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet,Titanic was originally released on December 19, 1997 and went on to win 11 Academy Awards including Best Cinematography, Best Director (remember Cameron's "I'm the king of the world!" speech?), and Best Picture. Made for an estimated budget of $200 million, Titanic grossed $1.84 billion worldwide before exiting theaters.
