|Home: BigScreen Journal - "Titanic" Being Released on Blu-ray in 2D and 3D on September 14, 2012 - Preorder Your Copy Today!|
James Cameron's epic Titanic was released in 1997 and went on to break all kinds of records, as well as winning 11 Academy Awards. In April of this year, he released a 3D conversion of the movie, and it did pretty well, staying in the top 10 in the box office for three consecutive weeks.
A Blu-ray release was inevitable, and yesterday, the studios involved provided some details about the release and it is already available for pre-order from retailers like Amazon.com:
Commented James Cameron, “Blu-ray extends Titanic’s immersive 3D theatrical experience into audiences’ homes, where their living room becomes the backdrop for big spectacular environments and intense action, as well as profoundly intimate human moments, allowing generations of fans – new and old – to truly become part of the movie like never before.”
According to the press release, the Blu-ray releases will feature more than 2.5 hours of all-new bonus footage including a documentary about the movie with James Cameron. It sounds as though the excellent documentary that was on the National Geographic channel back in April where James Cameron brings together a group of experts to go over the sinking and examine what the movie got right, what theories don't hold water, and just how the sinking happened now that they have the benefit of all the research that has been done.
There will be 29 deleted scenes (maybe in one of them, Rose actually hits the same place twice with that axe), an alternate ending, 60 behind the scenes featurettes, 2,000 photos, and more.
How much would you expect to pay for all this? Well, Amazon has the 3D and 2D combo packs for $29.99 and $22.99 respectively, and their Pre-order Price Guarantee is a good way of hedging your bets against any bargain pricing at Best Buy or WalMart on the week of release.
