Watch: Kate Winslet’s ‘Titanic’ Screen Test With Jeremy Sisto | Moviefone
1. THERE IS A FEATURED #SAILING TUMBLR TAG.
Hope you’re free during the first half of 2012 because you’re going to be seeing a lot of 3D rereleases. (Okay just two, but still).
Gloria Stuart, who played an older Kate Winslet in “Titanic,” died Sunday in Los Angeles. She turned 100 last July 4.
She was diagnosed with lung cancer several years ago, said her daughter, Sylvia Thompson, who confirmed her death to The Washington Post.
Stuart became the oldest Oscar nominee in history when she received a nod at age 87 for the 1997 role.
Stuart joked at the time that she was one of the few actresses who was “still viable, not alcoholic, rheumatic or falling down.”
She starred in more than 40 films in the 1930s - but was best known for her role of Rose in “Titanic.
“When I graduated from Santa Monica High in 1927, I was voted the girl most likely to succeed. I didn’t realize it would take so long,” she joked in her 1999 memoir, “I Just Kept Hoping.”
I’m still mad about her dropping that necklace into the ocean.

James Cameron has been talking about rereleasing Titanic in a post converted 3D for years now, and it looks like it might finally happen in 2012 (that is, if the world doesn’t end before then).
Cameron has previously stated that Fox is targeting Spring 2012 release for the 3D version, to coincide with the “100 year anniversary of the sailing of the ship.” The Los Angeles Times confirms this, stating that the director is currently “converting the blockbuster into 3-D for re-release in April 2012, the 100th anniversary of the ship’s sinking. ”
Hope we’re not sick of 3D by April ‘12.
Avatar is only $6 million behind Titanic’s all time box office record. Within the next two days we will definitely see Titanic dethroned. While Avatar is an amazing movie, does anyone else feel that Titanic was a more genuine fit for the top grossing film of all time?
This is not what I thought Obama meant when he promised Change.
