TITANIC and T2 in 3D?

From MTV Movie Blog:

"Even if James Cameron's Avatar somehow doesn't hit big with audiences this December, the filmmaker may soon have a couple more 3-D movies in theaters. Proven successes no less. Cameron's production company, Lightstorm Entertainment, believes it will be ready to announce a 3-D re-release for Titanic within the next six months, and they have been doing tests on Terminator 2: Judgment Day for a similar reissue.

Imagine: Leonardo DiCaprio saying 'I'm the king of the world' while seemingly sitting on your lap. Okay, so the first section of Titanic doesn't seem to lend themselves to 3-D in an exciting way, but you know it'll look cool when the boat starts going down. Scary too. Bodies that originally fell towards the camera on their way into the icy water will now likely be headed into the audience thanks to the added dimension.

As for T2, it's not definite that the sequel will be given a 3-D re-release. Visitors to Universal Studios have been able to see a Terminator-based 3-D film with T2 3D: Battle Across Time since the mid-90s.

Still, other studios and production companies are beginning to think more about 3-D conversions. Just look at Toy Story and Toy Story 2, which are about to be re-released in the format next week. George Lucas has always teased about doing 3-D versions of the Star Wars movies, while a Universal exec says his studio is waiting to see how the Pixar re-releases do before planning anything (will we see Back to the Future 3-D if they're a success?).

Reportedly, some in Hollywood don't see the profit being there for 3-D re-releases until the same tech for home entertainment is widely available to and popular with consumers. The goods are already there, with Cameron even shilling for Panasonic's 3-D TVs with Avatar footage. But obviously it will be awhile before there's one of these products in enough American homes."

I could honestly care less about Titanic BUT TERMINATOR 2 IN 3D?! THAT'S SWEET!!

EVEN SWEETER - someone's even considering BACK TO THE FUTURE IN 3D?! AWESOME!!!
