“Titanic” 3D release gets trailer, poster


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The “King of the World” is about to soar off of the screen and into your lap.

James Cameron has been preparing a 3D retrofit of his Academy Award-winning epic “Titanic” for years. And now, with the film’s re-release inching closer, Paramount is mounting a campaign to lure audiences back to the ship of dreams to experience it like they never have before.

The updated “Titanic” sails into theaters on April 6. A new trailer celebrating the high-tech conversion recently landed online. The studio also shared the below poster, with an original design featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

Released in 1997, Cameron’s masterpiece recreated the legendary ocean liner … just so it could be damaged and sunk to the bottom of the ocean. The film earned $600.7M domestically, making it the highest-grossing picture of all time. (Cameron surpassed his own record with “Avatar” in 2009.) Maybe this “Titanic” re-release can reposition the romance ahead of Cameron’s sci-fi thriller?

Here’s the trailer and poster.
