This fall, Paramount Home Media Distribution and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will bring Titanic to Blu-ray. Director James Cameron's epic romance focuses on the love that blooms between young socialite Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and sensitive drifter Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio, Romeo + Juliet), two passengers on the ill-fated Titanic voyage.
Cutting back and forth between the chaos on the ship and an aged Rose (Gloria Stuart, The Old Dark House) describing her experiences to a treasure hunter (Bill Paxton, Aliens) eighty-four years after the ship sank, Cameron creates a heightened representation of the different intrigues and social classes impacted by the disaster.
Note: For the Blu-ray 3D combo pack, Paramount has split the 3D version across two separate Blu-ray discs. The 2D version fits - along with the three commentaries - on a single Blu-ray in both the Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray 2D editions. Furthermore, the DVD copy in the 2D combo pack is spread out over two DVD discs.
Update: The 2D version will be presented in its 2.39:1 original aspect ratio, while the 3D version will receive a new 1.78:1 master with added information on the top and bottom of the frame to best fit the 3D experience. Both viewing modes also get English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio tracks alongside the following supplements:
