MarketSaw Post No. 2000!! TITANIC Has A Release Date!

We are hitting another milestone today as MarketSaw hits 2000 posts! And suitably we have an exciting announcement for the occasion: James Cameron, Fox and Paramount have set the date for the re-release of TITANIC in converted stereoscopic 3D, April 6, 2012.

For you history buffs, yes - that is the same date that the actual Titanic set sail for the first and only time.

Here are some quotes from the official press release:

"There's a whole generation that's never seen 'Titanic' as it was meant to be seen, on the bigscreen," said Cameron in a release announcing the 3D release date. "And this will be 'Titanic' as you've never seen it before, digitally remastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D."

"Our 30-plus year relationship with Jim Cameron and Lightstorm has been enormously rewarding, from 'Aliens' to 'Avatar', and the global phenomenon of 'Titanic' remains one of the greatest sources of pride in our history," said Fox Filmed Entertainment chairmen and CEOs, Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman.

"This new presentation of Paramount's top-grossing film is particularly special because 2012 is the 100th anniversary of our studio," said Brad Grey, chairman and CEO of Paramount Pictures. "Paramount has had the pleasure of introducing audiences to some of the all-time classics of cinema during that century of moviemaking and we cannot think of a better way to mark the occasion than with this re-release of 'Titanic'?"

So we finally get a release date for the much anticipated conversion and we should look forward to one heckuva good job on it. I can assure you that this conversion is being done RIGHT. And it is suiting to have such an announcement for our 2000th post as well!
