"There's a whole generation that's never seen Titanic as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen," Cameron said. "And this will be 'Titanic' as you've never seen it before, digitally remastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3-D. With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike."

Paramount chairman/CEO Brad Grey noted that the rerelease coincides with the 100th anniversary of the studio, while Fox Filmed Entertainment chairmen/CEOs Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman added that 'Titanic' is "one of the greatest sources of pride" in studio history.

The movie, which was nominated for a record 11 Oscars, was first released in 1997.
