James Cameron’s box office smash “Titanic” is returning to theaters in the next few weeks, and the movie will be the focus of a new National Geographic TV special. The events coincide with the 20th anniversary of the 1997 film.
The movie, which won 11 Academy Awards — including Best Director for Cameron, along with Best Picture — has grossed more than $2 billion worldwide.
Dolby Laboratories, Paramount Pictures and AMC Theaters have announced that a remastered version of the movie — the best-looking “Titanic” ever released, according to Cameron — will hit selected AMC locations across the country starting Dec. 1. Tickets reportedly go on sale today.
In honor of the movie’s 20th anniversary, National Geographic will roll out the one-hour documentary “Titanic: 20 Years Later with James Cameron” on Sunday, Nov. 26. The program will feature some of the world’s leading Titanic experts, including National Geographic explorer-in-residence Dr. Robert Ballard, covering developments in Titanic research during the 20 years since the movie came out.
Cameron will also be featured on a new episode of “StarTalk with Neil DeGrasse Tyson,” leading out from the “Titanic” special.
