Titanic will turn a quarter of a century this 2022 and James Cameron prepares a very special re-release
It was 1997 when James Cameron brought the most sinking romantic drama in the history of the Seventh Art to the big screen. We are talking, of course, about Titanic.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet starred in the love story that took place on the world’s most famous sunken ship.
Considered “unsinkable,” the RMS Titanic set sail from Southampton on April 10, 1912, bound for New York. On April 14, with 20 minutes to midnight, the Titanic collided sideways with an iceberg in the North Atlantic. The damage caused the ship to sink within hours.
Although Titanic spectacularly recreates the crossing and sinking of the iconic ocean liner, the love story between Rose DeWitt Bukater, first class, and Jack Dawson, third class, is the mainstay of the film. And there’s nothing more beautiful than lighting the flame of love while everything is going down the drain.
Titanic took the box office by storm, raking in $2.2 billion and becoming the highest-grossing film in history for more than 10 years. It was James Cameron himself who unseated his previous film with Avatar.
The 25th anniversary of Titanic will be celebrated at the end of 2022. With 11 Oscars among many other awards, it is one of the most awarded films in the history of cinema. That’s reason enough for there to be a big re-release and James Cameron will re-release Titanic in theaters in February 2023, in time for Valentine’s Day.
The film will return to theaters in 4k HDR 3D, with a remastered version that will take full advantage of modern theaters.
Titanic may be getting on in years, but, at the time, it was a cinematic milestone that dazzled everybody all around the world.
And yes, there was room on the wooden board for both. 😎
