I Attended The Titanic 3D Premiere!

Last night I was lucky enough to attend the world premiere of Titanic 3D. 15 years on from it's original release and almost 100 years to the day after the tragic White Star Line disaster on April 14 1912.


Held at the Royal Albert Hall in London, I was fortunate enough to walk the same red carpet as the film's stars in the London evening sunshine.


Kate Winslet looked every inch the hollywood superstar in her subtlely embellished black floor length Jenny Peckham gown.



Other cast in attendance included Billy Zane who plays controlling fiance Caldone Hockley, Frances Fisher who plays Rose's almost evil mother - who was much more warm and friendlier in real life! 

Bernard Hill who brought the role of Captain Edward Smith to life commented in the auditorium prior to the screening that he was excited to be in attendance as his son was only aged one during the first premiere so never got to witness his Dad's moment on the big screen. 

Jason Barry who plays Irish 3rd class passenger Tommy Ryan, Bill Paxon who plays explorer Brock Loveit and Suzi Cameron who plays older Rose's granddaughter also joined the presidents of Twenthifth Century Fox in taking to the stage alongside director James Cameron for a short speech prior to the feature. 
(I apologise for the photo quality - the stage lighting was very bright!)


Not only we're we lucky enough to be the first people in the world to witness Titanic in 3D, it had also been kept under wraps that we were to be treated to Oscar winning composer James Horner conducting a 30 strong orchestra through the Original Soundtrack score prior to the movie. I'm not a particularly big fan of classical music, but this was a soundtrack I grew up during my teens with! ...it was a pleasure to witness.



A particular favourite being a piece entitled "Hymn To The Sea" - I'm sure you'll recognise it! I always thought the prominent sound you hear during the song was from an instrument, but it was the lady above singing!



Aside the stirling cast with a noteably absent Leo DiCaprio (boohoo), there was also an abundance of other famous-types including new Dr Who Assistant and star of the current ITV 4-part series "Titanic" Jenna-Louise Coleman and the Made In Chelsea mob.

Despite the fact I had seen the film around 7 times at the cinema on it's realease when I was 11(!) and numerous times after, initially on VHS tape then upgrading my purchase to DVD ...last night it was like watching it for the first time all over again.

I was quite dubious how a film not originally shot in 3D could ever work in this format, but Cameron - the pioneer behind 3D cinematic technology - excelled himself again. The movie is much more vivid, upscaled to high definition and the 3D is subtly present - not over the top or constantly in-you-face - but enough to enhance the viewing pleasure of those who originally enjoyed the film in 1997, whilst meeting the expectations of the new, possibly more demanding audience of cinema goers.


So, are you "Ready to go back to Titanic?" ...Will you be making a trip to the cinema to see it in 3D?
