J.J. Abrams, George Lucas & Michael Bay Unite for 'Titanic Super 3D'
Some of you might have headed back to theaters to experience James Cameron's Best Picture winning historical drama Titanic, but in 3D this time around. Of course, if you haven't yet had the ship sink into the depths of the third dimension, you may want to wait. Why? Well, directors J.J. Abrams, George Lucas and Michael Bay have joined forces with James Cameron to deliver the most epic re-telling of the famous ocean liner tragedy in Titanic Super 3D. I'd like to dive more into the details of this remarkable collaboration, but I'll let this funny trailer from YouTube comedy group PistolShrimps speak for itself.
Here's the spoof trailer for Titanic Super 3D via The Huffington Post:
For those interested, Paramount has re-released Titanic (originally opened in December 1997) in theaters on April 6th, 2012, four days before the 100th Anniversary of the real ship's departure on April 10th, 1912. They've released it in 3D nationwide, IMAX, and also in 2D, featuring a fully digitally re-mastered 4K print that Cameron has said will look better than it ever has before. They spent a painstaking 60 weeks and $18 million at two conversion shops to make Titanic in 3D look like one of the best conversions you'll ever see. Titanic won a total of 11 Oscars, including Best Picture. See Titanic again back in theaters next right now!

Now, if Lucas was truly involved with this re-release, the old lady would've totally been all CGI.
