James Cameron wants to help Mythbusters prove that Jack and Rose could not have both occupied that door-raft

For a while now, there’s been a debate among some on the internet regarding one of the near ending scenes in Titanic, where Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) freezes to death in the north Atlantic while Rose (Kate Winslet) is relatively safe, floating on a broken door. Many seem to think that both Jack and Rose could have fit on the door, but James Cameron insists that the scene is correct, and only one person could have fit on the door. And he’s going on Mythbusters to prove it.

Too soon? Really? Plug gets pulled on Titanic drain stopper because it upsets members of Titanic survivor’s family

It’s been 100 years since the Titanic sank… isn’t 100 years plenty of time to turn a disaster into kitschy bathroom items? I think so. Some of the family members of people on the Titanic don’t think so and they got all whiny and bitchy about a company that made a Titanic bath stopper. Waaah.

Titanic… now in SUPER 3D

It’s just like being there, except less dying and hopefully more of Kate Winslet’s warm bosom.

James Cameron and National Geographic put together a new animation of how the Titanic sank

Wait, the Titanic was real and not just a movie? Damn.

Stunning new photos of the Titanic wreck from National Geographic

Oh the sad, sad irony: ‘Titanic’ theme song played as Italian cruise ship capsized

As sad as the sinking of the Italian cruiseliner the Costa Concordia was, there’s an odd bit of sad irony in the story— apparently, as the ship was going down, Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” was playing across the boat as it hit rocks off the Italian island of Giglo. That’s what happens when you play Celine Dion on a cruise. God gets angry.

Images of the Titanic wreck, now in HD 3D
This photo’s not in 3D unfortunately, but there are now quite a few HD 3D photos of the Titanic wreckage, as presented today in a Virginia courtroom as part of a court case to determine who has salvage claim rights.

Scientists who took part in a 2010 expedition to the North Atlantic wreck site said the images are the most extensive and highest quality ever taken of the Titanic. The expedition also fully mapped the 3-by-5-mile wreck site, which is located 2 1/2 miles below the ocean’s surface.
The experts said the entire debris field has now been documented for the first time.   The new images will ultimately be assembled for public viewing, scientists said, and to help oceanographers and archaeologists explain the ship’s violent descent to the ocean bottom. It is also intended to provide answers on the state of the wreck, which scientists say is showing increasing signs of deterioration.
The most striking images involved the 3-D tour of the Titanic’s stern, which lies 2,000 feet from the bow. Attorneys and court visitors donned 3-D glasses as a camera in a remote-controlled submersible vehicle skimmed over the stern, seemingly transporting viewers through scenes of jagged rusticles sprouting from deck, a length of chain, the captain’s bathtub, and wooden elements that scientists had previously believed had disappeared in the harsh, deep ocean environment.

So at some point, Nigeria did a remake of James Cameron’s Titanic

James Cameron’s Titanic made more money worldwide than anything ever, so it’s not surprising that filmmakers in other countries might try a localized version and somewhat replicate the success of James Cameron. But this is Nigeria, so what you’re getting in a Titanic remake here is really awful acting, dismal camera work mixed with some really low rent stock footage.

Sadly, the video is non-embeddable the bastards (Why the hell do people do that?) but you can check out this horror of Nigerian filmmaking here.

Check out the trailer for Titanic II. Yes, a real movie.

The Asylum is a movie studio that seems to want to make itself the Troma of the 21st century, which is an impossible dream, but you can’t fault a movie studio for dreaming. They put out mainly shitty and low-budget films that gratuitously rip off big budget films for the lulz and for the confusion of grandmothers. 

Titanic II takes place 100 years later, where a cruise line decides to tempt fate by naming their ship “Titanic II” and is then surprised when it’s a disaster. “It’s like history repeating itself!”
