On the 25th anniversary of director James Cameron’s Titanic, the Oscar-winning and box-office sensation will head back to theaters just in time for Valentine’s Day next year. Disney will release a remastered version in theaters in 3D 4K HDR and with a high frame rate starting on February 10, 2023. The film’s domestic rights are held by Paramount, which is anticipated to announce a release date in the next few days.
Lightstorm Entertainment COO Jon Landau, fresh off a 36-hour flight from New Zealand, teased news of the Titanic rerelease during Disney’s CineEurope presentation in Barcelona on Wednesday. Landau has been Cameron’s longstanding producing partner. He showcases a 3D view of the remastered version there.
The epic film that got off the careers of mega-stars Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio first stormed into theaters in December and stretched out around the globe for many months. The film went on to take home 11 Oscars, including those for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Editing, Best Original Song, and more.
In 2012, a 3D version was rolled out. Titanic is the third highest-grossing film of all time at the worldwide box office, earning $2,2 billion. Out of the total, $659.4 million comes from North America, while $1.542 billion comes from overseas. Avatar, directed by Cameron, is now tied as the best movie of all time around the world.
