Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet star (again) in the Titanic 3D trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
In my movie-going lifetime, I don’t think there has ever been a movie as big and cherished as much as TITANIC. Even taking into account the STAR WARS films and AVATAR, I remember TITANIC being loved and obsessed over more than anything else. The question is whether or not the same girls that were crying in theaters in 1997 and couldn’t get enough Leo in their life will return to the theaters in 2012 to see something they’ve seen a dozen times on DVD. And even though we all know we don’t need movies from 15 years ago re-released in 3D, I have to admit that watching the trailer again has reminded me how good this film is. But that really makes me want to watch it on Blu-ray (which it’s not available on), not in theaters.
After THE LION KING 3D made bank at the box office a few months ago, there’s no telling how many more films we’re going to see get re-released in 3D. But I take exception to TITANIC because director James Cameron has been critical of movies converting to 3D rather than shooting originally in 3D. But I guess making more money is enough to change anyone’s mind. See Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet and Billy Zane again in TITANIC 3D on April 6th, 2012.
