Cameron turning 'Titanic' 3D, 'Aliens' and 'Terminator' to follow?

The vertiginous closing scenes as the ship rises out of the sea will be worth seeing in 3D, as will Kate Winslet's cleavage and Billy Zane's scenery-chewing, but it's hardly worth sitting through the whole three hours yet again.

"Terminator 2" could be back...in 3D. Fresh from reinventing 3D filmmaking with "Avatar," James Cameron wants to go back in time to target his own back catalog and convert "Aliens" and the "Terminator" films into 3D--once he's finished adding an extra dimension to "Titanic."

Cameron is currently working on converting his 1997 Oscar-snatcher to three dimensions. He's already revisited the stricken ship in 3D with his IMAX documentary "Ghosts of the Abyss," although he warns viewers that the retro-fitted "Titanic" will be more like "2.8D."

He's certainly wary of the bad press heaped on "Clash of the Titans," which had 3D hastily slapped on just before release. The vertiginous closing scenes as the ship rises out of the sea will be worth seeing in 3D, as will Kate Winslet's cleavage and Billy Zane's scenery-chewing, but it's hardly worth sitting through the whole three hours yet again.
