'Titanic' fans to relive tragedy in 3D film

THE 3D version of James Cameron's 1997 Oscar-winning film "Titanic" will hit cinema screens in China tomorrow and is expected to rekindle Chinese fans' enthusiasm for the tear-jerking blockbuster.

Since last week, many Shanghai cinemas have begun selling tickets for "Titanic 3D." Theaters with an IMAX 3D screen are particularly popular among film buffs as they can offer a more dramatic experience.

Stellar Cinema City will present two shows -- an IMAX 3D screening and a 3D screening -- at 12am tomorrow. Almost all the 453 seats for the IMAX 3D screening have been sold out, but about 80 percent of the seats for the 3D screening remain unsold, cinema managers said.

Yonghua Cinema, which will also show "Titanic 3D" at 12am tomorrow, has sold half of its 300 tickets.

The original "Titanic" raked in about 360 million yuan (US$58 million) in China when it was shown in 1998 and remained the top Chinese box office earner for 10 years until it was outsold by "Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen" in 2009.

Some film fans are looking forward to a 4D screening of "Titanic." In a 4D theater, seats can vibrate, rotate, rise and fall and the effects of wind, rain, lightning and fog can be simulated. People will feel the same sensations as those in the film.
