Near, far, wherever you are, Titanic in 3-D is coming to a theater near you earlier than planned. James Cameron’s 3-D re-release of his Oscar-winning smash was initially going to sail on Friday, April 6, but Paramount has opted to have the epic Kate and Leo love saga arrive on Wednesday, April 4 instead. This April will mark the 100th anniversary of the legendary ship’s first and final, tragic voyage.
But the digitally remastered 3-D version of 1997’s Titanic (which will compete at the box office with fellow revisiting-the-90s film American Reunion) won’t be the only film hitting theaters earlier than scheduled. Eddie Murphy’s latest comedy, A Thousand Words, has been moved up from April 20 to March 9, where it will face off against competing family-friendly fare John Carter and the decidedly less friendly Silent House.
