TORONTO – The blockbuster film Titanic is returning
to theatres today in eye-popping 3D.

Producer Jon Landau says director James Cameron spent more

Landau says he hopes the movie finds a whole new audience
now that it’s returning to theatres, calling it “a big-screen
experience.”

The reworking comes 15 years after the original film broke
box office records, and 100 years after the ocean liner sank on its maiden
voyage across the Atlantic
