James Cameron Confirms Titanic 3D Date

Talking to USA Today, James ‘King of the World’ Cameron confirmed the target date for a 3D version of his record-breaking epic Titanic.

“We’re targeting spring of 2012 for the release, which is the 100 year anniversary of the sailing of the ship.”

That’s great and everything but if you go back and watch Titanic again, the CGI doesn’t stand up that well in comparison to Avatar, or anything else for that matter.

The set pieces still look amazing but overall will it hold up under 3D scrutiny?

It also sounds like he’s not finished milking the blue wonder Avatar for all it’s worth just yet. When asked about a re-issue of Avatar, Cameron explained his plans.

“We’re not officially announcing it right now but I’m hoping for fall. The wildcard is that we might be re-releasing the movie this fall. It’s kind of gotten stomped out because of Alice in Wonderland.

The word we’re getting back from exhibitors is we probably left a couple of hundred million dollars on the table as a result. The question is the appetite still going to be there after the summer glut of movies. We’re going to assess that. We’re talking about maybe adding in additional footage and doing something creative.”
