Fifteen years ago, James Cameron brought us TITANIC – an epic, action-packed romance set against the ill-fated maiden voyage of the R.M.S. Titanic.
On the eve of the centenary of the ship’s sinking, TITANIC, James Cameron’s ground-breaking and uniquely powerful emotional and visual epic is back on the big screen, for a limited time only, like never before – digitally re-mastered and in stunning 3D
“I’ve been looking for years for an opportunity to put TITANIC back on the big screen,” said writer/director, James Cameron. “Because that’s really where it belongs. It’s a different experience in a movie theatre. And I never doubted for a second that TITANIC was right for 3D so I though, well this could be a way to do it.”
The National Geographic Society and National Geographic Channel also have announced a major cross-platform initiative to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, to take place in April 2012. At the centrepiece of the plans are two world premiere films featuring National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence Robert Ballard and James Cameron and the April 2012 cover story of National Geographic magazine, the first magazine to fully chronicle Ballad’s 1985 discovery of the wreck. The Titanic specials will be shown in South Africa on DStv Channel 260.
Paramount Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox present a Lightstorm Entertainment Production, TITANIC which will be sub-distributed by Nu Metro Films and released in 3-D at cinemas around the country on 5 April 2012.
