Experience more Titanic than ever before at IMAX
It's been almost a century since the ill-fated Titanic's maiden voyage; and 15 years since Director James Cameron wowed us with his interpretation of its sinking.
The Academy Award-winning movie Titanic now not only returns to the big screen in state-of-the-art 3D, it bounds onto IMAX screens showing even more of the footage than ever seen before - with a taller aspect ratio than seen in the original theatre release.
'Cameron announced that since the film was shot in Super 35, they were able to remaster the entire film at a larger aspect ratio than its original (and normal 3D re-release) theatrical distribution. This means you’ll get more image at the top and the bottom, which hopefully provides a more immersive experience.' (Slashfilm).
In a featurette about Titanic's conversion into 3D, Cameron talks about the painstaking process he went through to get the conversion right.
“We cleaned it up and made it as pristine as possible before we even began the conversion process.” said Cameron.
It's not just the image that will be huge at IMAX Melbourne Museum. The IMAX print is so huge it will be delivered in a pellet and weighs over half a tonne.
Titanic 3D opens at IMAX Melbourne Museum on 5 April 2012. For more information, visit this link.
