It’s a big year for Director, James Cameron, with the release of Avatar 2 and the quadranscentennial anniversary of the award-winning Titanic.
It’s unbelievable that it’s been 25 years since this timeless romance was released in theatres with a 21-year-old Dicaprio and 20-year-old Winslet. The remastered version of the film was released in theatres on Friday, February 10 for a limited time, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
The 3D remastered version in 4K HDR with a high-frame-rate offers a vast improvement on the once cutting-edge visuals of the original film release. If you wept during the original, bring a box of tissues because this new visual enhancement sets the stage for a real cryfest.
For those who haven’t seen the film(or at least not in theatres), it’s a chance to partake in history. Titanic is the 3rd highest-grossing film of all time after Gone with the Wind and Cameron’s Avatar. In the 111th year of the sinking ship, Titanic, you’ll experience the chemistry of Jack and Rose in a whole new light while getting to feel as though you’re departing from Southhampton with them and the other 2,240 passengers on board.
The true story, with fictional embellishments follows the tale of 2 star-crossed lovers from different backgrounds aboard the same ill-fated ship. The real Titanic, a British cruise ship dubbed the RMS Titanic and recognized as “unsinkable” departed the port without proper safety inspections and left passengers scrambling to find lifeboats and vest when the ship did sink. Nearly 1,000 died on the RMS Titanic 111 years ago on April 15, 1912 and the film humanizes the ones lost by centering on the characters in this iconic love story.
Prepare yourself to endlessly sob during this 3 hour and 16-minute remastered version of the classic romance tragedy film, Titanic. The film premieres in different theatres globally starting Friday, February 10 for a limited time.
