Nowadays it seems that iconic movie romances have a supernatural or superhero element to them. (Twilight anyone?) But in the past, some of the greatest love stories to hit the silver screen actually involved real-life human beings, especially those who find themselves in extraordinary situations. Like the two total opposites who fell for each other on a ship with a doomed destiny of Titanic proportions. And soon, we’ll be seeing them again. That’s right, the 1998 worldwide smash which forever imprinted the names “Jack and Rose” into our minds is headed back to the big screen in 2012.
The once highest grossing film of all time will hit movie theaters everywhere on April 6, 2012, giving audiences another chance to follow the tragic love story of two individuals from completely different worlds, as beautifully portrayed by Academy Award nominee Leonardo DiCaprio and Oscar winner Kate Winslet. Only this time around, moviegoers will get the chance to experience this voyage in 3D.
“There’s a whole generation that’s never seen Titanic as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen,” said director James Cameron in a press release. “This will be Titanic as you’ve never seen it before, digitally re-mastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D.”
While this re-release will draw audiences both young and old back to the local multiplex for this sure-to-be memorable occasion, the April 6 release date conveniently marks the 100th anniversary of Titanic’s first (and final) expedition. The voyage this time around is one that Cameron assures us will be more powerful than ever before.
“With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever,” says Cameron, “this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike.”Tags: 3D, Jack Dawson, James Cameron, Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio, re-release, Titanic, Twilight
