First Poster and Trailer Released for 3-D Titanic
Posted 11.16.11 by Mandy
In 1997, director James Cameron made a sweeping period epic knowing that there could never be a sequel, but it turns out that a 3-D re-release was quite possible.
The first poster for the April re-release of Titanic features Jack and Rose, and reminds audiences that Leonardo DiCaprio was once a teen heartthrob, and that the now sleek and sophisticated Kate Winslet was once a wide-eyed ingenue. In the poster, the two kids cling to each other, proving that even after all this time they've never let go.
We'll see in April if fans of Titanic are still as enchanted by the star-crossed, post-Edwardian-era lovers. We'll also see if the addition of 3-D effects gives any depth to Billy Zane's decidedly uni-dimensional villain, Cal Hockley.
The first trailer for the re-release is exclusively on the the movie's Facebook page and includes an introduction from Cameron, himself. While the trailer doesn't contain any surprises, it does contain a certain Celine Dion song that many, perhaps, had thought they'd already heard for the last time. But like Rose's heart, that song does go on and on.
