James Cameron's 'Titanic' Lands 20th Anniversary Rerelease in Theaters
The classic film will be shown in AMC Theatres equipped with Dolby Cinema.
James Cameron's Titanic will be released in select AMC Theatres to celebrate its 20-year anniversary, Dolby Laboratories announced Wednesday in partnership with Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox.
The Oscar-winning movie — starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio — will play in 87 theaters equipped with Dolby Cinema for an exclusive one-week run, beginning Dec. 1. It will be shown in both 2D and 3D.
Titanic, which first sailed into theaters Dec. 19, 1997, remains the No. 2 top-grossing film of all time ($2.19 billion) behind Cameron's Avatar, not accounting for inflation.
"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 as been mastered, I'm excited to share it with audiences across the U.S.," Cameron said in a statement. "This is beyond 3D, beyond 70mm, it's beyond anything you've ever seen before."
Added Dolby senior vp Doug Darrow: "Our partnership with James and Paramount has enabled us to showcase a masterpiece of theater in the most incredible way."
Tickets go on sale Nov. 15.
