It’s a good day to be James Cameron. The director of The Abyss and Avatar successfully manned a solo submarine to the bottom of the Mariana trench. No one had ever done that before.
The timing is good because the world is gearing up to recieve the Titanic in 3D. This is James Cameron’s very successful Titanic movie enhanced for today’s 3D capabilities.
It’s perhaps easy to forget that the 1997 film was a visual feast although its easy to imagine how cool some of the water effects will look.
To support the film’s re-release, and perhaps to remind us of how detailed the movie was, an expanded collector’s edition photo gallery has gone on sale. James Cameron’s Titantic is a large softback with a 3D front cover and an extra 18 pages. This include a new introduction from James Cameron itself as well as never-before-seen images from the studio. There’s also images from Cameron’s personal archive.
It’s almost impossible to review a collection of photos and do them justice – so Geek Native has managed to win permission to show a sampling of the images from the book. I’ve had to convert them from high quality print files to web safe formats which has added plenty of fuzz to a few.
