According to EWonline, the release date for James Cameron’s 3D re-release of his Oscar-winning film Titanic has been changed.

Paramount Studios had originally announced that the film would open in theaters on Friday, April 4th. However the studio has now decided it will release the new version of the film on Wednesday, April 2nd.

April will mark the 100th anniversary of the tragic sinking of the ship. The award-winning film starred Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio as fictional passengers aboard the doomed luxury liner. 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.

Called “A spectacular demonstration of what modern technology can contribute to dramatic storytelling” by Variety upon its release in 1997, the long in the works 3D conversion is being overseen by Cameron and his Lightstorm producing partner Jon Landau who produced the hit movie.
Said Cameron, “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.”

Kate Winslet was so determined to complete a book to raise funds for her autism charity, she headed to a star-studded event after surgery in an attempt to meet Bill Clinton.

The actress roped in her famous pals, including Jude Law and Ben Stiller, to pose for photos wearing a “magical” headpiece for the tome in aid of the Golden Hat Foundation, which she set up to help her friend’s autistic son Keli.

Winslet’s mission came to a halt when she underwent a minor operation — but she refused to take doctors’ advice and rest up, and instead headed out to a party in a bid to land former U.S. President Clinton for her book.

She tells Ladies’ Home Journal, “You wouldn’t believe some of the things I did to get that hat to people. Like, I gatecrashed a private function to get the hat to Bill Clinton.

“It was a dinner party of about 30 people, and my friend foolishly gave me a ticket. I’d just had minor surgery and I had stitches, and I was like, ‘I don’t care, I need Bill Clinton, f**k it.’ So I hobbled in to this party in my cocktail dress, and begged. Unfortunately he was surrounded by handlers who wouldn’t let him put it on. But I needed to try. And most of the time it was fine.

“A lot of the time it was just me racing around the city to different events. Once my children and I made a road trip to watch Michael Phelps swim in Baltimore, so we could get him into the hat. I was terrified of losing it — and I was sure I’d lost it several times. See, at some point I want to auction it off to raise more money.”

The book, entitled “The Golden Hat”, is set for release in April, 2012.

Titanic star Kate Winslet graces the March 2012 cover of Ladies’ Home Journal and opens up about motherhood and her new book, “The Golden Hat: Talking Back To Autism”. While Kate’s children — daughter Mia, 11 and son Joe, 8 — don’t have autism, the Oscar-winner is on a mission to dispel myths and raise awareness for people living autism.

On the biggest misunderstanding about children with autism: “That they are not capable of understanding anything, that they are completely locked in their own worlds and aren’t paying attention to anything around them or that they are disinterested. Even those closest to them sometimes believe that. And so often that proves not to be the case.”

On if she’s ever worked with children with disabilities: “Yes, I was a spare pair of hands at a summer camp for disabled children when I was a teenager and there were kids there of varying disabilities. There was this beautiful tall young man who was 20 or 21. I won’t say he was treated unfairly, but because he didn’t speak, moved slowly and had significant sensory issues, nobody knew how to handle him. So it was a case of just managing his day. But there were moments when I would look him in the eye, and he would look at me, and I knew there was somebody in there. And I never forgot that experience. In retrospect, he was probably autistic.”

On feeling the importance of giving back in a profound way: “Well, my father is disabled — he lost his foot in an accident when I was young. It was awful, it caused all sorts of problems, both physically and psychologically — and for a while my family was supported by a charitable trust. So I understand on a very personal level what a charitable organization can do.”

On what motherhood means to her: “For me, motherhood is not about signing the check to get your kids and the best school; it’s about giving them the freedom to be who they are.”
