JUST BREAKING: As Titanic returns to theaters worldwide April 4-6, 2012 in 3D (zzzzz), marking the 100th anniversary of the ship’s sinking, a new soundtrack will be issued March 25 on Sony Classical, containing a duet version of Celine Dion’s iconic No. 1 “My Heart Will Go On,” with Spanish tenor Placido Domingo.
Since its launch in 1997, the original soundtrack has sold more than 26 million copies worldwide, while Celine’s “My Heart Will Go On” has moved more than six million copies, becoming her signature song and as identified with the film as the ship itself.
As the new film version premieres around the world, stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, as well as Celine, will be making media appearances to promote its re-release. Two new editions of the original motion picture soundtrack are slated: “Titanic Anniversary Edition” and “Titanic Anniversary Collector’s Edition.”
The first includes a 12-page booklet and vintage stickers, the remastered soundtrack, previously unpublished recorded music by orchestra I Salonisti, and the Dion/Domingo duet… Talk about overkill: The Collector’s Edition comprises the booklet and stickers, along with four CDs: the remastered soundtrack, “Back To Titanic” remastered, I Salonisti’s music with the Dion/Domingo duet, and popular music from the “Titanic” period. *
