Sounds like the joke about the guy who killed himself because he was so sick about eating a Tuna sandwich for lunch everyday. Thing is he packed his own lunch.

The answer is simple. Cameron just wants to make sure he'll always have the 2 biggest movies ever. Extending the box office number is the ONLY reason. If it was really about enhancing a movie with 3D, he would've converted a movie that would benefit more from the 3D, like, you know, TERMINATOR 2...

Oh they'll "extend" them alright.

Actually I think Fox is financing the conversion and needs to recoup it's investment and make a profit.

And those scenes are in the last 30 minutes of a 3 hour movie.

I think there are plenty of scenes actually. The whole sequence where the ship leaves port ending in the flyover shot where you see the whole ship go by for example. The iceberg scene...

What about all the hall scenes, especially with the water poring towards you and away? Even early scenes would benefit greatly since there are so many narrow and long shots (halls, decks,...).

It made quite an impression apparently:

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=81022

Yeah...

"Opening on the crowd scene in the docks as the ship is boarding, the most noticeable thing about the footage is how much detail there is. When a film is converted to 3D, objects are rotoscoped and separated out onto layers. Ordinarily there are only a few layers in a shot, but with Titanic, it would seem that stereographers have put every single object onto a separate plane. The effect is astonishing - and completely justifies a 3D version of the film."

I'm looking forward to it

I get that sinking feeling it will be a good conversion due to the prep time and director involved.

Some really positive reactions after the latest preview; people are calling it the best 3D conversion ever- would have fooled them if they were told it was native.

I agree, and with Lee's suggestion of blade runner.

I'd watch The Predator, Alien/s, Terminator 4, Lord of the Rings, War of the worlds, Saving Private Ryan, Matrix, Serenity, Final Fantasy, Naughty neighbors 6, The Abyss, Total Recall, The fifth Element...

He does say hes going to build in more 3D depth, hopefully approaching real world values, I really want to see how that turns out.

I would also agree that Ridley Scotts "BladeRunner" would be awesome... one of my all time favorites. I'm hoping Cameron does a 3D conversion of "Abyss"... Russian water tenticles anyone??? (I know its on his "to do" list for Bluray release, hopefully 3D at the same time, not later!)

Me, I'm sick of these big-shot directors always after another money grab. First the sequels, then the special editions, now 3D (grumble, grumble)... Personally I'm not gonna fall for shelling out more...

of my hard-earned...

(grudgingly reaches into wallet)

...oh, FINE!

(huff)

I lol'ed. So true, isn't it?

At any rate, I'd go to see it. In some ways, I think this is what drama needs in order to make it more immersive. There are some really good dramas out there with amazing cinematography and I would love to see more good conversions and future ones shot in 3D. As it stands, fast action scenes tend to get too blurry in 3D and my eyes often can't resolve the image. So much so, that sometimes I have to turn my head away.

I watched Captain America (which, to me looked like a pretty good conversion on my setup) and the 3D pop was greater to me in the slower scenes. Fast action comes along with people running everywhere and it all becomes a blur. Maybe it was just that movie, but...

PS - I would love to see Moulin Rouge in 3D

Is it OK if I also imagine it's in 4K with 11.2 sound?

Sure, but since it wasn't native, it'll seem more like 3.5k and 10.1 channel.

Saw it in front of hugo. Looks even better than I imagined. Great clean conversion work, none of that garbage embossed or bumped out look so many other conversions settle for.

Beauty and the Beast however, well... Looked pretty blotchy.

Agreed, the trailer for Titanic I saw when watching Hugo last evening was terrific, with great sense of depth not seen in the original. Cameron has been doing a great job with the conversion.
