James Cameron to Spend $18Million on Converting the Titanic to 3D

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Studios and filmmakers are committed to 3D although there is definite push back from the theaters. Higher ticket prices help the theaters, but they are faced with the studios making them pay for the 3D glasses. An expense the studios have absorbed so far.

Titanic will take a year to convert.
