Titanic is returning to theaters! This time the movie will be in 3D! It will be released in movie theaters on 4th of this April.Now many probably just think this is the movie studios cashing in on the new 3D movie market, however there is more to it.
2011 April marks the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s fateful maiden voyage. It was a century ago that the largest ship of its day, one that was considered unsinkable hit an ice berg and sunk on its first voyage. The Titanic set sail on her maiden voyage on April 10, 1912 out of Southampton, England on her way to New York City.
On the night of April 14, 1912, the ship hit an ice berg on April 15, 1912 the Titanic had sunk beneath the icy waves of the cold, dark Atlantic killing nearly two thirds of her passengers in the process. So here we are 100 years to the month of the sinking of Titanic.
Of course James Cameron’s Titanic was just the latest in a number of movies made about the ship. The infamous A Night to Remember was released in 1958 and starred Kenneth More, Ronald Allen and Robert Ayres. Before A Night to Remember was released, the 1953 film Titanic, starring Barbara Stanwyck, Clifton Webb and Robert Wagner hit the movie theaters.
Then in 1996 the first colored film about the Titanic was released, once again just called Titanic. It was a Television movie series starring Peter Gallagher and Catherine Zeta-Jones.However James Cameron’s Titanic (1997) will bring some awareness to the tragedy a 100 years prior when re-released in April 2012.
The modern scenes were shot on board the Akademik Mstislav Keldysh, which Cameron had used as a base when filming the wreck. A reconstruction of the Titanic was built at Playas de Rosarito, Baja California, and scale models and computer-generated imagery were also used to recreate the sinking.
Upon its release on December 19, 1997,the film achieved critical and commercial success. It equaled records with fourteen Academy Award nominations and eleven wins, receiving the prizes for Best Picture and Best Director.Titanic is also ranked as the sixth best epic film of all time in AFI's 10 Top 10 by the American Film Institute.
