Woah. For all the comments that Cameron had already T&O'd Titanic for the SE DVD, the Blu-ray version decides the issue once and for all. I don't mind it in the least, YMMV.
Stars/no stars in this comparison. http://www.caps-a-holic.com/hd_vergleiche/comparison.php?cap1=14062&cap2=14046&art=full&image=2&cID=1259&action=1&lossless=#vergleich
It could be that DVD resolution couldn't resolve them (and the Euro SE DVD was filtered a bit more than the US one, gonna check my R1 now), but I seem to remember that the background in that shot has always been pitch black. Another little Cameron tweakeroo, perhaps?

Well, duh. Titanic 3D's 4K origination has been well publicised, no?
