NEW YORK (AP) — “Titanic” is coming back to theaters in 3-D.
Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox announced Thursday that James Cameron’s Oscar-winning film will be re-released April 6 next year.
It will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Titanic setting sail on April 10.
Cameron says the film was “painstakingly” converted to 3-D and promises “an epic experience.”
“Titanic” was released in 1997 and won 11 Academy Awards and grossed more than $1.8 billion worldwide. That gross is second only to Cameron’s “Avatar.”
