Director: James Cameron
Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, Kathy Bates
James Cameron isn't just King of the World. He's King of 3D, too. The guy just can't seem to leave well enough alone. So following the unprecedented success of his box office behemoth Avatar, the three-time Oscar winner decided to gather up a team of 300 artists and give his previous record-holder, Titanic, a 3D overhaul.
It would be easy to call this a cheap attempt to turn a quick buck, but the word "cheap" isn't in Cameron's vocabulary. While the original film was already a technological breakthrough, the 3D version—released 15 years after the film's initial release—boasts an additional layer of depth that only intensifies the flat version, making the action more pulse-pounding and the character development more visceral.
