All right, folks! Last week was busy with big news, and this week will be no different.

We’re going to be back with a larger post later this morning to cover it all, but first we wanted to break in here early with official word that James Cameron’s Titanic (1997) is now available for pre-order on Amazon!

This fulfills at least part of a promise made to us by producer Jon Landau and first reported here at The Bits all the way back in March (see our report from the time here, complete with video we shot of Landau breaking the news). Note that we’ve included the video I shot at Lightstorm that day below the break as well.

Paramount’s street date is 12/5, just as we’ve been predicting for a while now. According to the packaging, which you can see at left and also below the break, the release will be a 2-disc set that includes the film in 4K Ultra HD, along with a Blu-ray disc of bonus features.

The set will include over 15 hours of content (most of it on the Blu-ray), including a new documentary, Titanic: Stories from the Heart, featuring new interviews with James Cameron, Jon Landau, and Kate Winslet, as well as a new fan art gallery. [Read on here...]

You’ll also get three audio commentaries on the 4K disc, plus more legacy extras on the Blu-ray, and a Digital code.

The packaging also confirms that the 4K disc will feature Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio.

I can further confirm that the film is included on a 100GB disc to allow for maximum video and audio data rates. And I’m told reliably by those who have seen the new master that it does feature light photochemical grain—the presentation looks properly cinematic.

We expect the official announcement to follow very soon and we’ll share it here at The Bits as soon as we have it.

Here’s a better look at that cover artwork in the meantime (click on each image to pre-order the title on Amazon and support our work here at the site in the process)…
