James Cameron stated quite a while ago, back in 2009 whilst promoting Avatar actually, that he was going to convert some of his older movies into 3-D, which seems to be his only style right now.

He said that the first one to get the treatment would be Titanic, and depending on the success of that, he will go on to convert the likes of The Abyss and Terminator 2 into 3-D. Well now that first conversion has a release date. Titanic will be sailing, and sinking, on our cinema screens come April 6th next year. This date also marks the 100th anniversary of the ship setting sail (10th April to be precise). It will also be 15 years since the film came out.

James Cameron had this to say about the release date; “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 remastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D.” 

Excited? Or is this just a mere cash-in? Either way the results could be interesting, and I do quite like the idea of Terminator 2 in 3-D. We shall see the results on April 6th.
