‘Titanic’ is returning to cinemas as a remastered version
If the soft, pillowy flutes in Céline Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” still give you chills, well, we’ve got news for you.
Titanic is making a return to cinemas for its 20th (!) anniversary, this time remastered for AMC theatres Dolby Cinemas around the U.S. for one week only.
The screenings will take place from Dec. 1, and will be released in 2D, as well as 20 locations which support 3D.
“We mastered a few minutes of Titanic in Dolby Vision and I was stunned. It was like seeing it for the first time. Now that the entire film has been mastered, I’m excited to share it with audiences across the U.S.,” the film’s director, James Cameron, said in a statement.
“This is beyond 3D, beyond 70mm, it’s beyond anything you’ve seen before. The image leaps off the screen as bright and vibrant as life itself.”
Of course, it’s not the first time Titanic — the highest grossing film ever until Avatar unseated it in 2010 — has had a revamp for the cinema. In 2012, a 3D version of the film was released, which also fixed inaccuracies with the star formation after Cameron was informed by an astrophysicist of the error.
In December, Cameron will release a one-hour documentary that’ll explore the film’s historical accuracy, set to air on National Geographic.
Your heart might not be in it, but you can bet the Titanic brand will go on.
