Avatar – The Way of Water is currently dominating the cinema charts at will. After only four weeks, the sequel to the most successful film of all time has already grossed over 1.7 billion US dollars at the worldwide box office. In the all-time charts, Avatar 2 is only at number 16 in the USA, but internationally it has already left heavyweights such as Marvel’s Avengers or Jurassic World behind and stalked its predecessor up to number 7. Things are also going extremely well in Germany. In this country, Avatar – The Way of Water could celebrate the best fourth weekend ever. In a few weeks, however, James Cameron will be competing with himself in the cinema.
James Cameron: Highest-grossing filmmaker of all time thanks to Avatar and Titanic
If three blockbusters in the top ten highest-grossing films in the history of cinema come from the same person, then this filmmaker must have got something right. In addition to Avatar – The Way of Water in 7th place, its predecessor is enthroned in 1st place in the all-time list of the best. Titanic, the monumental work by James Cameron, is in third place and also topped the all-time charts for many years.
And it is precisely this blockbuster that is celebrating its comeback on the big screen. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, on February 14, 2023, Titanic can once again be admired on the big screen. For the 25th anniversary, the once most expensive film of all time will once again be released in cinemas from Thursday, February 9th, 2023. For its re-release, the great classic was not only dusted off, but properly polished.
See Titanic again in cinemas for Valentine’s Day – in 3D, 4K, HDR and HFR
When Titanic was released in cinemas in 1997, the world’s cinemas were still completely analogue. Real rolls of film, which could tear, get fuzzy and had to be changed during the performance, were the technical standard at the time. Thanks to laser projection, we now see films with unprecedented sharpness and brightness.

In order to be able to offer viewers something unique again, James Cameron had his classic Titanic adapted to the current conditions of modern cinema. The film was subsequently digitized in 4K, converted to 3D and rendered at 48 frames per second. So, similar to Avatar – The Way of Water, we will be able to enjoy Titanic in HDR and HFR. However, the most successful filmmaker of all time still has to prove whether the result is as convincing as the breathtaking scenes on Pandora.
