James Cameron told OTRC.com that the upcoming "Titanic 3D" DVD and Blu-ray release will include a whopping 57 minutes of deleted scenes and two and a half hours of new footage.
"There are two documentaries, they're very separate in subject - one is about the making of the film and the whole phenomenon, like what happened while it was being made, how they crucified us and thought we were complete idiots and then it came out and it was the highest-grossing film in history," Cameron told OTRC.com in a recent interview. "There's a whole, really interesting behind-the-scenes story there and then the other documentary is about all the dives that I've done and that our group has done to the wreck site and all the forensic analysis of the wreck that we've done over the last decade and a half, starting before we even shot the movie."

Kate Winslet praised "Titanic" director James Cameron and said she wasn't surprised by the decision to add a dimension to the blockbuster film.
"My first reaction when Jim called me and told me 'We're going to bring it out in 3D' was 'How wonderful' because a whole 'nother generation who perhaps haven't seen it and certainly haven't seen it on the big screen will have the opportunity and that's great. It's a wonderful film," Winslet said in an interview provided by the studio. "Am I surprised it's coming out in 3D? No, I'm not actually because Jim Cameron - there's no one like him - he's the most capable human being actually that I've ever known and when he puts his mind to something, he does it."
Leonardo DiCaprio might be proud of "Titanic 3D," but director James Cameron said the actor was more than embarrassed to watch himself on the big screen.
"I didn't show him the whole film but I showed him 18 minutes of it a few months ago." Cameron told WENN at the film's premiere. "It was a good reunion for us but great to watch his reaction. He couldn't believe it. He said to me, 'I'm such a young punk. Look at me.' He was practically crawling under the seat. It was a good moment."
James Cameron has safely returned from his journey to the Earth's deepest point.
The "Titanic" and "Avatar" director traveled to the bottom of the sea on Sunday to explore the south Pacific's Mariana Trench. He used a specially designed submarine called "Deepsea Challenger" to dive nearly seven miles as part of a National Geographic Society project.
