Titanic posterAnyone remember the summer of 1997? The Labour party sweeping into power? The signing of the Russian-Chechen peace treaty? Handing the sovereignty of Hong Kong over to China? If so... lucky you, because all we can recall is the never ending thunderous monotony of Celine Dion on the radio and endless lines of teenage girls outside cinemas waiting to see Titanic for the 15th time.

Well, get ready to relive it (the Titanic bit anyway) as James Cameron plans to re-release a 3D version of his big boat epic in 2012, tastefully coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the disaster. Which means that, if you want to, you could watch the film exactly a hundred years on from when people were really dying horrible deaths in the freezing waters of the Atlantic ocean, like, for real!

We've already had new films rushed into 3D (Clash of the Titans), old 2D films re released in 3D (Toy Story), and classic films apparently going to be remade in 3D (Jaws), so it seems the 3D revolution is happening whether you like it or not.

We can only hope they never start broadcasting the Oscars in 3D because if Cameron gets to win another one, the last thing anyone needs is him shoving his triumphant head into their living rooms and screaming about being king of the world or whatever his next low key non triumphant acceptance speech is going to consist of.

Here's a trailer for Titanic, try and enjoy it in boring old 2D for now...
