Titanic re-released in 3D to coincide with the 100th year of the tragedy

One of the biggest films in the history of Hollywood is set to return to the silver screen in 3D. Titanic was the highest grossing film with $1.843 billion until Avatar, directed by the same director grossed $2.77 billion.

Titanic was first released in 1997. It is a movie based on the real event of a passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean when it collided with an iceberg. The same movie is being re-released in 3D on the 100th anniversary of the tragedy.

Director James Cameron said the movie in 3D would crank up the experience. He said this is his way of paying tribute and added that, 3D would make the experience more real.

When criticized that he was cashing in on the disaster, he said he made the movie in the first place so that the unfortunate incident could be remembered and he says re-releasing the movie is doing just that. He also said “I think the film is a good focusing agent for that at this time when we should be remembering the wreck and its message, the disaster and its message for all of us”

Kate Winslet, the actress of the film caught her biggest break after this film. She has said several times that this is one of the most important films of her career.  She attended the premier of the film on 28th March along with the director.

On the red carpet, Actor Leonardo DiCaprio was sorely missed; he was unable to attend the premier as he was shooting for another movie. When asked about her experience of watching herself on 3D, Winslet said it was weird. She said it felt like she was going through an old photo album for hours. She found it strange.

When the movie re-releases next week, it will include two previously deleted scenes. When the movie was first released in 1997, two scenes were cut from it. But, this time they have been included and the movie will make it to the theatres with a U/A censor rating by the CBFC.

Titanic fans across the world have a lot to look forward to.
