James Cameron’s Remastered ‘Titanic’ to Bow on 4K Ultra HD Disc for First Time Dec. 5

Paramount Home Entertainment will release James Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster Titanic — the first movie to earn more than $1 billion at the global box office — for the first time on 4K Ultra HD disc Dec. 5.

The two-disc set will include the film on 4K Ultra HD and a Blu-ray Disc with more than five hours of new and legacy bonus content, including new interviews with Cameron, star Kate Winslet and producer Jon Landau. The set also includes access to a digital Ultra HD copy of the film.

Titanic will also debut in a limited-edition collector’s boxed set that includes all of the above along with the following exclusive collectibles in a slipcase:

  • A hardcover coffee table book detailing the making of the film’s most iconic scenes
  • A detailed schematic inspired by the actual ship blueprint, highlighting locations of key scenes
  • Movie prop reproductions of a boarding pass, launch viewing ticket, ship menus, and notes from Jack to Rose and Rose to Cal
  • Sheet music for the multi-award-winning hit “My Heart Will Go On”
     

The film follows the story of star-crossed lovers Cal and Rose (played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet) set against the backdrop of the legendary and ill-fated maiden voyage of the “unsinkable” ship Titanic. The film has generated more than $2.2 billion at the global box office to date.

  1. Finally! It’s about time for this modern classic to be released on 4K UHD Blu-ray (and 4K streaming, for those willing to accept lesser quality 4K images and lower quality audio). Mr. Cameron is certainly taking his time with his films when it comes to home video. Maybe we’ll finally see films like True Lies and The Abyss at last make it onto Blu-ray (or, preferably, 4K). Don’t know why he takes so unbelievably long to approve home video versions of his films. He certainly keeps his fans waiting, doesn’t he?
