It’s been 25 years since Titanic first set sail and captured the hearts of audiences worldwide. To mark the anniversary, James Cameron’s epic romance will be returning to theaters on February 10th with a brand-new 3D 4K HDR high-frame rate version.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater, the film tells the story of the ill-fated lovers aboard the infamous RMS Titanic. The blockbuster film held the number one box office spot for 15 consecutive weeks and went on to become the highest-grossing movie of all time, earning over $2.2 billion worldwide.
Director James Cameron recently reflected on the casting of DiCaprio and Winslet, stating that “I can’t imagine that film without him and without her.” Cameron had to fight for DiCaprio’s casting, as the studio initially didn’t want him, and even had to convince the actor to take on the role of Jack.
Alongside the star-studded cast, the film also made waves for its award-winning soundtrack, featuring the iconic ballad “My Heart Will Go On” performed by Céline Dion.
Cameron has spent a year researching the film to ensure its historical accuracy. He wanted the film to be as authentic as possible, and although there are some inaccuracies, the director believes that overall, they “got it pretty right.”
Fans old and new can experience the magic of Titanic on the big screen once again when it returns to theaters on February 10th. Get ready to experience the heart-wrenching love story and relive the tragic events of the fateful voyage in a way that’s never been seen before.
