Box Office Mojo Inflation Adjusted totals
There is talk about re-releasing Titanic in 3D in late 2010 There is no uncertainty that a 3D release of Titanic will happen. The only uncertainty is the release date.
Titanic 3D box office added to Titanic’s total will easily move it up to 3rd place on the all time inflation adjusted list.
All six Star Wars movies will be released in 3D.
I would guess the new Star Wars 3D movies will start releasing on May 16, 2012 for the 35th anniversary of Star Wars original release. The first major re-release of a special edition was in 1997 for the 20th anniversary. The latest the release would occur is 2017 for the 40th anniversary.
Star Wars will have solid box office as there is a generation of new fans of the new Clone Wars TV series. Plus people under 20 who will have never seen the movies on the big screen.
Star Wars will pass Gone with the Wind to become the top grossing movie of all time.
The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi should both move into the top 10 all time upon the 3D re-release.
