James Cameron, Paramount Preview 'Titanic 3D' Footage

Earlier this morning, James Cameron, in conjunction with Paramount Pictures, presented 17 minutes of footage for the upcoming 3D re-release of the 1997 romantic drama Titanic.

Cameron said that nearly $18 million had been spent so far in converting the second highest grossing movie of all-time (currently sitting on $1.8 billion in ticket sales) into 3D with more than 300 artists meticulously rendering every detail of the movie.
 
Cameron said that he had to resist the impulse to correct things, referring to the advancements that had been made in the past 14 years. "Every film is a snapshot of its time, and we should be satisfied with what effects we were capable of at the time." Take that George Lucas.
 
You can read the full recap over on Movies.com as Christopher Campbell was fortunate enough to get a first-hand look at the new footage. Titanic 3D is slated to sail into theaters April 6, 2012. Whether it sinks like the titular ship will be up to audiences, although judging from the success of recently re-released The Lion King, all signs point to this movie avoiding that iceberg of disappointment.
 
Are you interested in seeing what Cameron, the foremost champion of 3D filmmaking, does with this classic or are you in the camp that says Hollywood has run out of ideas, etc.?
