Titanic sailing onto Blu-Ray September 14th!

If you couldn’t tell by my REVIEW for the new 3D release, I really really love Titanic. It’s been one of my most anticipated Blu-Ray releases since the formats inception, too. The day has finally come! You know when you would get to that point in the DVD where ol’ E.J. says that famous line, “I believe you may get your headlines, Mr. Ismay”, and it cuts to black, so you’d have to get up off your couch and the dozens of used kleenex sitting in your lap would roll all over the floor? NEVER AGAIN! Well.. sorta. It’s split up if you’re watching the film in 3D. But hey, the 2D version is on one disc, and really whats the point of 3D at home? 2D wins forever!

The special features are housed on single BD-disc, and are as follows:

  • In-depth Reflections on Titanic exploration of the film with James Cameron
  • Titanic: The Final Word documentary produced by National Geographic with James Cameron that brings the world’s leading RMS Titanic experts together to discuss why and how the ship sank
  • Three audio commentaries:
  • – Director James Cameron
  • – Selected cast and crew members
  • – Don Lynch and Ken Marshall
  • Sixty behind-the-scenes featurettes
  • Featurette on the visual effects
  • Thirty deleted scenes with optional James Cameron commentary
  • Titanic crew video $200,000,001: A Ship’s Odyssey
  • Deep dive presentation narrated by James Cameron
  • Constuction timelapse
  • Videomatics
  • Still galleries:
  • – Over 2,000 archival photographs
  • – James Cameron’s Titanic scriptment
  • – Storyboard sequences
  • – Production artwork
  • – Ken Marshall’s painting gallery
  • – “By the Numbers”
  • – Bibliography
  • Titanic parodies:
  • – MTV’s 1998 Movie Awards skit
  • Saturday Night Live skit
  • Titanic in 30 Seconds
  • Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” music video
  • Trailers and TV spots
  • The 2D version will be presented in its 2.39:1 original aspect ratio, while the 3D version will receive a new 1.78:1 master with added information on the top and bottom of the frame to best fit the 3D experience. Both viewing modes also get English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio tracks.

Um, so yeah, you’re going to need a full day to pour over those special features. I’m really happy that they’re putting the Final Word documentary in there. It aired on NatGeo back in April and was really interesting. James Cameron uses forensic analysis to determine the most accurate way that the ship sunk, realizing that his film is wrong. I enjoyed it. Obviously, though, the most important inclusion is the Celine Dion music video. I hope cameron gave it a new 4K transfer as well!
