It's one of the highest-grossing movies of all time. It has won eleven Oscars, and now it's coming to you in 3-D. James Cameron's Titanic will be re-released in 3-D on April 16, 2012.
The release of the movie coincides with the 100th anniversary of Paramount, which the studio is also celebrating in 2012.
Brad Grey, chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures said, "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."
The April date was chosen to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the historic ship's first and only voyage.
James Cameron, writer and director of the movie, released a statement regarding the re-release of his hit film.
"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."
According to PopEater, the movie is the second highest grossing film of all time (behind another Cameron hit, Avatar). In the United States, the movie made $600 million and overseas has made $1.2 billion.
