We don’t like this movie!
We have two original CDs of the soundtrack, the three-disc Video CD, a DVD and a downloaded copy of the movie. So, yeah.. we don’t like this movie because -WE LOVE IT!
Last April 10 marks the 100th anniversary of the real Titanic voyage and to commemorate this historic event a newly re-mastered TITANIC film in 3D opened in theaters last April 4.
Ivory Music & Video will release a remastered version of the original TITANIC soundtrack with extensive bonus material. Both feature an unreleased disc of period music recorded for the movie by I Salonisti, plus 4 bonus vintage Titanic luggage stickers. I Salonisti is the 5-piece quintet that appears in the film. Director James Cameron painstakingly researched the music that was played on the ship and hired them to record authentic music from the period – specifically, the music that all bands from the White Star Line would have been required to perform when hired to play as employees of the prestigious cruise fleet. Arranger and music historian/advisor John Altman oversaw the process and was tasked with taking the White Star Line official playlist, arranging and recording those songs for the film.
Two of the marquee songs on the disc I Salonisti: Gentlemen, It Has Been a Privilege Playing with You Tonight are “Nearer My God To Thee” which was the last song played by the band as the ship went down, and “Song of Autumn” which does not appear in the movie, but is rumored to be the actual song that the band played as the ship went down.
The music from this blockbuster movie is central to the film and has always been widely embraced by fans. The original TITANIC soundtrack sold over 26 million units worldwide (where we contributed by buying 2 units) and the BACK TO TITANIC soundtrack sold over 3 million units worldwide.
Of the new film version, director James Cameron says, “There’s a whole generation that’s never seen TITANIC as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen. And this will be TITANIC as you’ve never seen it before, digitally re-mastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D. With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike.”
The film is released by Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and Lightstorm. Written, directed and produced by Cameron, TITANIC is the second highest grossing movie of all time. It is one of only three films to have received a record 11 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director; and launched the careers of stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
TITANIC: Anniversary Edition is available in music stores nationwide, only from Ivory Music & Video, the exclusive licensee of Sony Music in the Philippines.
