Titanic in 3-D
More 3-D madness is coming your way. This time one of the highest grossing films ever, is being turned into a 3-D film.
Yes, you will be able to watch Kate, Leo and the Titanic in glorious 3-D.
Titanic broke box office records when it was released in 1997. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as a love struck pair, trying to survive the sinking of the Titanic. Throw in some Celine Dion, and film history was made.
Now though, James Cameron says that he is dimensionalizing Titanic. Taking the film he made, and turning it into a 3-D film. He says that he has already converted some of the film to 3-D, and it is looking great. Jo Blo says it will take at least another year to do the rest.
It seems a strange choice of film to make into 3-D, given Cameron's back catalogue. And hasn't just about everyone who wants to, already seen the film? Will 3-D be enough to get people returning to the cinema to see it? There will obviously be parts of the film, which could look stunning in 3-D. But the vast majority of it, is Jack and Rose swooning over each other.
I have only seen one film in 3-D recently, Ice Age 3, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I think 3-D definitely has a place in those kind of films. But I can't imagine sitting watching Leo and Kate for nearly three hours in 3-D. Mind you, I barely made it through the film first time around.
Would you like to see Titanic in 3-D? Would it add anything new for you? Does the whole 3-D thing interest you at all?
