Catch ‘Titanic’ in new Dolby format on Friday


It's still a bit early to predict what movies are going to open on Friday, though a range of options are available — from "The Disaster Artist" to "The Shape of Water."

But for sure, some 87 AMC theaters across the nation on Friday will opt for nostalgia. They'll be celebrating the 20th anniversary of James Cameron's multiple-Oscar-winning film "Titanic" with a week-long screening.

"Titanic," which stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, won 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. It ranks second on all-time world box-office charts with a $2.18 billion total (second only to Cameron's 2009's film "Avatar" with $2.78 billion).

The new version boasts a print, mastered in Dolby Vision technology. Even Cameron was impressed by what he saw.

“We mastered a few minutes of 'Titanic' in Dolby Vision and I was stunned,” Cameron said. “It was like seeing it for the first time. Now that the entire film has been mastered, I’m excited to share it with audiences across the U.S.”
