Twenty years after James Cameron released a fictionalized account of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, it will once again return to theaters to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
When Titanic was originally released to theaters on December 19, 1997 it would go on to spend 15 consecutive weeks as the number one movie in North America, a record that still stands. The film would stay in theaters for almost 10 months before finally closing on October 1st.
Starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, Titanic is set to return to a select number theaters on December 1st in celebration of the movie’s 20th anniversary. For one week only, beginning December 1st, Titanic can be seen across the United States in all Dolby Cinema at select AMC locations.
James Cameron had the film remastered and had this to say about the films restoration.
“We mastered a few minutes of ‘Titanic’ in Dolby Vision and I was stunned. It was like seeing it for the first time. Now that the entire film has been mastered, I’m excited to share it with audiences across the U.S. This is beyond 3D, beyond 70mm, it’s beyond anything you’ve seen before. The image leaps off the screen as bright and vibrant as life itself. This is the way all movies should be seen and without a doubt, ‘Titanic’ has NEVER looked better.”
You can check out the trailer that was created just for its 20th Anniversary with an introduction by James Cameron himself.
