We already have a thread about if you like 3-D or not. But this one is about the new direction 3-D films are taking. Sure nearly everything recent is being released in 3-D. Nothing new of course but what about the recreation of past accomplishments?
Titanic is due to be re-released in theaters on April 6th 2012. For the Titanic's 100th anniversary. But the catch is..... It'll be in 3D. It'll be awkward for those who are against the 3-D movie but it'll give others a chance to see the #1 highest grossing film of all time the way it earned that title. Back in theaters. Which is an opportunity a few generations have missed.
Following this news. Another famous Oscar winning title is also being brought back to the big screen. But int he form of 3-D. The Lion king. Which will be released sooner than the Titanic.. September 16th 2011. But only for 2 weeks.
Your opinions of bringing the classics back into light? But at the cost of re-mastering them into 3-D. Do you think it'll shed a whole new light on the experience of seeing something we already know and love?
Personally I'm going to see them. I was only about 5 years old when the Titanic came into theaters and about 2 years old when The Lion king was released into theaters. I think the magic of seeing the films i grew up on but was too young to understand while in theaters is worth it being in 3-D. Hopefully they don't screw it up.
