A movie review



By Andrew Hesner

GREENSBURG, Pa. -- "Every shipwreck is a human story," said "Titanic" director, writer and shipwreck explorer James Cameron during his 1995 exploration of the "unsinkable" luxury liner. After embarking on his fifth trip to the wreckage, he started production of the  film which the American Film Institute deemed the sixth best epic of all time. 


The 3-D "supercharged" 2012 re-release of the 1997 Oscar-winning film proved to be even more visually amazing than the original. Cameron waited for the 100th anniversary of the  sinking to resurrect what critics called "the love-story that stole the world's heart," and clearly succeeded.


Cameron's 3-D conversion debuted April 4 and grossed $4.4 million on its opening night. It took in an additional $17.4 million over Easter weekend. The global profits, as of April 10, total $61 million.
