Titanic: A re-release of a timeless classic

By Molly mcGranahan
On April 13, 2012

Where were you Dec. 19, 1997? Probably not in the movie

theaters, given we were only about eight or nine years old and weren't even allowed (or supposed) to see PG-13 movies. Whether you actually waited until you were thirteen or channeled your inner rebellious rulebreaker and saw the movie anyway, each and every one of us has experienced the wonder of the film Titanic. It is a timeless classic that

holds world-breaking records. You don't have to be a film

buff to love Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt-Bukater, appreciate the brilliance of director and writer James Cameron or count down the days until April 4, 2012. I doubt there is a person out there who doesn't know each word to Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On," or who is unable to

quote Jack's last plead to "never let go." An unprecedented opportunity to experience both is here, and I promise you won't want to miss out on this movie event of the year.

Prepare to set sail, yet again, because 15 years after its original release date, Titanic was re-released in theatres nationwide on April 4. In addition to commemorating its

100th anniversary of setting sail, movie-goers get to experience Titanic in a new and breath-taking vision of 3D.

While many people express annoyance when it comes to 3D movies, I promise you won't even have time to complain about how the glasses annoy you. The greatest love story ever told is told again, but now is more aweinspiring and chill-inducing than ever before. Cameron, one of the most

highly respected directors of our generation, held on to his recordbreaking worldwide gross of over $1.8 billion dollars until he broke it himself in 2010 with the release of his film Avatar. The power invested in Titanic through the stunning special effects, cinematography and powerful love triangle

praises it as the sixth most epic film of all time, according

to the American Film Institute. While the special effects

were unlike those typically seen in 1997 Hollywood, they remain spectacular to this day. Seeing the RMS Titanic sink in 3D before right before your eyes is an unforgettable

experience. You may not recall what you were doing

on Dec. 19, 1997, but you can change what you are doing today, in 2012. Join Brock Lovett and his team as they explore the ruins of Titanic down under in search of the "Heart of the Ocean" and explore the story of Jack and Kate

in a mind-blowing 3D presentation of one of the greatest stories ever told. My only advice? Take your bathroom break before the 194 minute film begins because you aren't going to want to miss a single second of this; no matter

how many times you have seen Titanic, it's going to feel like it's your first.
