(NEW YORK) — One of the great love stories of all time is now available on Blu-ray for the first time.
A 3D Blu-ray version of Titanic hit stores this week. It contains over two and a half hours of never-before-seen footage.
Titanic director James Cameron is fond of a new documentary in the collection called “The Final Word,” which explores what happened to the ship once it sank.
He says, “If you’re really into kind of how the ship sank, I get the experts together and we sort of work it out and I think we come to some pretty good conclusions.”
Cameron tells ABC News Radio that his love for deep sea exploration was fostered by his research for the film, including his expeditions to the Titanic wreck. That helps to explain why the sequels to another one of his blockbusters, Avatar, will explore the ocean world on the moon Pandora.
What else can we expect from the Avatar sequels?
Cameron reveals, “It’s really going to be the completion of a major story arc that has to do with Jake and Neytiri and their children, and it’s an epic multi-generational story.”
Cameron says Avatar 2 will be released on Christmas 2015 and Avatar 3 on Christmas 2016. The director doesn’t have a release date in mind just yet for a possible fourth Avatar flick, but he says the film could be a prequel.
