TITANIC In S3D By Spring Of 2012!! And A RE-RELEASE Of AVATAR In The Fall?!

Jim here. James Cameron has announced his intentions for the release of TITANIC in S3D after he filmed the Black Eyed Peas and their unannounced concert in New York's Times Square (via USAToday). AND he lets us know about a potential re-release of AVATAR!

Cameron said: "We're targeting spring of 2012 for the release (of a 3D version of Titanic), which is the 100 year anniversary of the sailing of the ship."

TITANIC is a gorgeous motion picture. To see it in 3D and get that immersive feeling surrounding you should be amazing. Water rushing toward you while you are hanging on to the bow of the boat as she goes down? Intense stuff.

And just as I had speculated a few times it looks like there is serious potential to re-release AVATAR this coming fall. Cameron tells us this in response to a question of when we might see the release of AVATAR on 3D Blu-ray: "We're not officially announcing it right now but I'm hoping for fall. The wildcard is that we might be re-releasing the movie this fall. It's kind of gotten stomped out (in theaters) because of Alice in Wonderland. The word we're getting back from exhibitors is we probably left a couple of hundred million dollars on the table as a result."

Great to hear these things from the man himself! It makes perfect sense to me - I would have liked to have seen just how far AVATAR could have gone. It certainly deserves an encore don't you think? :-)
