You may have heard the catchphrase “Near, far, wherever you are” in reference to the sensation that is Titanic, which debuted in theatres on December 19, 1997. Prior to the arrival of Avatar, which James Cameron also directed, the romantic drama film directed by James Cameron had long maintained the #1 spot on the list of highest-grossing movies ever made. On February 10, just before Valentine’s Day, Titanic will make a special 25th-anniversary appearance on the big screen in a newly remastered version. The director explained why he decided to rerelease Titanic in February even though it was initially released close to Christmas.

In an interview, The Jess Cagle Show, Cameron said he wanted to re-release Titanic so that anyone who hadn’t seen it before might do so, as well as to give those who had a nostalgic trip down memory lane. When asked why he launched it in February rather than on the actual 25th anniversary of the movie, the director stated: “Since we initially released in 1997 into 1998, Valentine’s Day made the most sense to me as a release date because that was just a few days before Christmas. It was, I believe, [December 19]. Valentine’s Day, however, was the release’s most lucrative single day.”

The director noted that the fact that the film’s best box office performance occurred in February just proves that Titanic is a success after all “celebration of love,” to which he responded: “Kind of obvious why, but very unusual for a film to have its biggest single performing day after being out in theatres for two months. It’s a celebration of love, therefore. At the same time, it’s a celebration of the movie. Additionally, it’s a celebration of the film’s success.”

The R.M.S. Titanic, which sinks after slamming into a sizable iceberg, is the setting for Titanic, a novel about two star-crossed lovers who met there. Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, who portrayed Rose Dewitt Bukater and Jack Dawson, respectively, in the love story, became well-known actors. Following its debut, Titanic received numerous honors, including 11 Oscars. Fans are undoubtedly thrilled about the re-release, but according to Cameron, who spoke with SiriusXM, most of the remastering work was finished ten years ago, and the only new aspect of the movie is the incorporation of Atmos sound, which wasn’t accessible back then. “The movie hasn’t had a single frame modified. There are no Easter eggs or, you know, small end-credits scenes. We don’t need to tease a new film.”

The film is still in the top three highest-grossing films of all time, with Avengers: Endgame taking second place and Avatar firmly holding the top slot, even after 25 years. Cameron was the author, producer, and director of Titanic. Famous actors Billy Zane, Kathy Bates, Frances Fisher, Jonathan Hyde, Danny Nucci, and David Warner also make appearances in the film in addition to DiCaprio and Winslet.
