'Titanic' turns 25! Director James Cameron to re-release iconic movie on Valentine's week
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Film is the mirror of the world and 'Titanic' is a perfect example of that. The extraordinary romance drama ruled our hearts for as long as one can remember. It has secured a place in the heart of its fans and still does. Released on December 19, 1997, the love story held a place of 'Highest Grossing Film' in the history of cinema, which was later replaced by 'Avatar', which co-incidentally is made by the same Director, James Cameron.
'The film revolves around how the two characters meet on the RMS Titanic and end up falling in love. The movie was the sole reason that created a household name for Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, who played Rose Dewitt Bukater and Jack Dawson, respectively. 'Titanic' has won many awards after its release that include 11 Oscars.
'Titanic' completed 25 years last year December and to celebrate it, Cameron is in works to re-release it in February for those who haven't seen it and to give a tribute to the masterpiece by going a trip down the memory lane. According to Collider, the director said: "Well, the date that made sense to me was Valentine's Day, because in the original release, which was 1997 into 1998, we came out a few days before Christmas. But the highest-grossing single day of the release was Valentine's Day."
The movie has held its charm even after 25 long years and has remained as one of the top three highest-grossing movies in the history of cinema, with 'Avatar' casually holding the first spot and 'Avengers: Endgame' occupying the second. Titanic was written, produced, and directed by Cameron. Along with DiCaprio and Winslet, stars like Billy Zane, Kathy Bates, Frances Fisher, Jonathan Hyde, Danny Nucci, and David Warner were also a part of the movie.
