Director James Cameron will return to the red carpet fresh from the success of his latest deep sea venture. The filmmaker reached the ocean's deepest point on Earth- a place where only two men had gone before - early on Sunday.

And now he will be joining the stars of his other watery success, Titanic, which re-launches tonight in 3D. Cameron said: "The 3D enriches all of Titanic's most thrilling moments and its most emotional moments.

"More than ever, you feel you're right there going through all the jeopardy that Jack and Rose go through. The 3D kicks the whole experience up to another level."

Cameron may miss London premiere

Film director James Cameron has said that the delay to his deep sea dive in the Mariana Trench means that he may not arrive in London in time for the premiere of the 3D version of Titanic. He said that it would be very close.

It seemed like the ocean presented me with a choice...I decided to stay with my team who have worked so hard to make the vehicle ready to dive.
