Paramount announced yesterday  that it will re-release the Oscar-winning movie 'Titanic'  in 3-D on April 6, 2012.  In a statement, the film's director, James Cameron, said, "There's a whole generation that's never seen 'Titanic' as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen. And this will be 'Titanic' as you've never seen it before, digitally re-mastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D. With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike."

The re-release of the movie  will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the  Titanic, which went down on April 15, 1912. Next year  also marks the 100-year anniversary of Paramount Pictures.

Released in December 1997, 'Titanic' went on to win a record-setting 11 Oscars and grossed over $1 billion, worldwide.
