Titanic 3D gets release date

Cameron to take time with conversion


Titanic 3D will be released in April 2012, according to director James Cameron and Fox Studios, to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the ship's voyage.

That gives Cameron a little under 2 years to show us all how a proper 3-D conversion is done.

Back in March, following the release of Clash of the Titans, the director voiced his displeasure at the lucrative process of converting previously 2D footage into 3D:

"They ignore the fact that we natively authored the film (Avatar) in 3-D, and decide that what we accomplished in several years of production could be done in an eight week conversion."

"They'll be putting out an inferior product."

Look's like Cameron's set himself quite a challenge to justify converting his own film. But if anybody can do 3-D right, surely it's the Avatar man.

Will Cameron do it? Tell us what you think...

      Is it really Cameron doing it? I mean come on! Really. He'll pay for it, no doubt oversee it ("yes" "no" "do it a little different") but he's not the man behind the wizardry really. I'm tired of hearing about people like Cameron and Lucas, who stand on the shoulders of all these hard working special effects technicians etc, and are put on a pedestal as though it's actually them doing the hard work.

      Clearwater old bean I'm afraid your comments about Cameron don't hold up to scrutiny. Check your facts then come back and apologise for your ignorance about Cameron's input into the design and construction of, say, stereo cameras or the full-face-with-coms diving helmets in The Abyss.

      If James Cameron says he can do it, he can do it. And yes Im sure he'll be overseeing the whole conversion himself.

      It's not ingorance. My god, don't be so naive. He's contributed financially and raised finances for these things. He's not the guy designing the tech behind it. And when he apologises for the awful scripts to Avatar and Titanic, then I'll consider rewording my post.
