James Cameron Talks Titanic 3D!

Remember when people went to see Titanic multiple times? Like…8 times kind of multiple?

Well we wonder if this new generation of love struck kids will give the same response come April 6, 2012 when Titanic 3D hits theaters.

If they think Twilight is romantic, pshh…. then they have another thing coming!

And while we’re all excited about the film’s second cinematic release, 3D conversion hasn’t been a fun process for mastermind James Cameron.

According to him, it’s actually mind numbing!

The auteur painfully explains:

I really don├óΓé¼Γäót enjoy the process. I am five months in so the artists are becoming good and starting to read my mind a little, so it has become easier, but I still sit there with the jog wheel and look through the movie frame by frame and make notes on depth. That should be closer, that should be further back, there’s not enough full depth here, there is not enough volume on that shoulder, a little more volume on that urn in the background, see that chair in the background on the left, no the other one on the left, that one needs to come forward another six inches├óΓé¼┬ª when the captain stands up we have to do an interlocular dynamic, da da, da da, da da├óΓé¼┬ª it’s fricking endless! It’s a mind-numbing process; it’s like mowing the lawn with a toenail clipper.

But it’s all for a good cause, Jim. You know, the cause of true love and learning how to blow a whistle even though your body is an ice cube!

It’s also an $18 million cause! Add that on top of the millions it already took to make the original!

But we’re all for it! We can’t wait to commemorate the 100th year anniversary of Titanic’s tragic sinking by going to the theater…again!
