James Cameron has been talking about rereleasing Titanic in a post converted 3D for years now, and it looks like it might finally happen in 2012 (that is, if the world doesn’t end before then).
Cameron has previously stated that Fox is targeting Spring 2012 release for the 3D version, to coincide with the “100 year anniversary of the sailing of the ship.” The Los Angeles Times confirms this, stating that the director is currently “converting the blockbuster into 3-D for re-release in April 2012, the 100th anniversary of the ship’s sinking. ”
The RMS Titanic she set off on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England, on April 10th 1912, and struck an iceberg and sank four days into the trip, on April 14th 1912. Judging from those historical dates, the movie will be released in the second week of April 2012, likely on Friday April 13th. It’s also possible that Fox will open the film on Tuesday, April 10th to mark the historical date, although a Friday release seems more likely.
