Overview

This spectacular epic re-creates the ill-fated maiden voyage of the White Star Line's $7.5 million R.M.S Titanic and the tragic sea disaster of April 15, 1912. Running over three hours and made with the combined contributions of two major studios 20th Century-Fox, Paramount at a cost of more than $200 million, Titanic ranked as the most expensive film in Hollywood history at the time of its release, and became the most successful. Writer-director James Cameron employed state-of-the-art digital special effects for this production, realized on a monumental scale and spanning eight decades. Inspired by the 1985 discovery of the Titanic in the North Atlantic, the contemporary storyline involves American treasure-seeker Brock Lovett Bill Paxton retrieving artifacts from the submerged ship. Lovett looks for diamonds but finds a drawing of a young woman, nude except for a necklace. When 102-year-old Rose Gloria Stuart reveals she's the person in the portrait, she is summoned to the wreckage site to tell her story of the 56-carat diamond necklace and her experiences of 84 years earlier. The scene then shifts to 1912 Southampton where passengers boarding the Titanic include penniless Jack Dawson Leonardo DiCaprio and society girl Rose DeWitt Bukater Kate Winslet, returning to Philadelphia with her wealthy fiance Cal Hockley Billy Zane. After the April 10th launch, Rose develops a passionate interest in Jack, and Cal's reaction is vengeful. At midpoint in the film, the Titanic slides against the iceberg and water rushes into the front compartments. Even engulfed, Cal continues to pursue Jack and Rose as the massive liner begins its descent. Cameron launched the project after seeing Robert Ballard's 1987 National Geographic documentary on the wreckage. Blueprints of the real Titanic were followed during construction at Fox's custom-built Rosarito, Mexico studio, where a hydraulics system moved an immense model in a 17-million-gallon water tank. During three weeks aboard the Russian ship Academik Keldysh, underwater sequences were filmed with a 35mm camera in a titanium case mounted on the Russian submersible Mir 1. When the submersible neared the wreck, a video camera inside a remote-operated vehicle was sent into the Titanic's 400-foot bow, bringing back footage of staterooms, furniture and chandeliers. On November 1, 1997, the film had its world premiere at the 10th Tokyo International Film Festival.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
Size of all sorts mattered for James Cameron's blockbuster Titanic, whose magnitude was in all ways unprecedented. Cameron and two studios spent $200 million on a 90% scale Titanic replica at a newly constructed Mexico studio; their efforts included duplicating furnishings from original Titanic designs, diving trips to shoot footage of the wreck with a specially designed underwater camera, and months of post-production on computer effects ranging from overhead "shots" of the Titanic at sea to characters' puffs of freezing breath. Delayed several months and beseiged by negative word-of-mouth, Titanic finally opened to rave reviews, especially for its bravura visuals. A few doubts were expressed over the Jack-Rose romance, but nothing could beat the spectacular recreation of the ship sinking or the powerful image of the floating corpse field. That love story, however, proved a potent draw, as Leonardo Di Caprio fans (many of them teenage girls) came back for repeat viewings, helping to power Titanic to a sojourn of more than 3 months at the top of the U.S. box office; the most expensive film ever made became a titanic moneymaker, grossing over $1.6 billion internationally. Cameron's coronation as blockbuster artist arrived when Titanic received a record-tying 14 Oscar nominations (like 1950's All About Eve) and won a record-tying 11 (like 1959's Ben-Hur). Cameron's screenplay, however, was ignored.

    I LOVE THIS MOVIE!

    This is by far one of my favorite movies. The entire movie is just captivating. This movie really brings the intensity of those who were lost on the Titanic and the ones that lived; it brings their story to life. It's a must have in your movie collection. I've seen this movie a billion times and I'm still counting. The movie has everything romance, love, adventure, heroism, and sorrow. Rose is young woman that is forced into a marriage by her mother, to a wealthy man named Cal. At first she tolerates the match making. But when Rose finds love with a poor painter named Jack, she changes her plans. But Cal and her mom will not allow such a thing. When the Titanic is doomed for sinking Rose, and Jack fight for their survival, determined to have a life together.

    One of the Best Movies EVER

    Titanic is probably one of my favorite movies to watch. I'm so glad I finally got it on DVD after I got rid of my VCR. This movie is a great buy and I 100% definitely and totally recommend it. Leonardo diCaprio is my favorite male actor, because he plays his part so well and he's really cute! Kate Winslet is absolutely gorgeous in the film. The movie was provocative and had a lot of emotion behind it. You cannot miss this film!

    It's the king of the world!

    Titanic is a spectacular movie. Jack and Rose brings you back to what the beauty of falling in love with someone. This love refreshes everything and brings you through the amazing story of the tragic sinking. Everything about the movie is unbelieveable! It touches your soul and brings you to that night in the ship. You feel the terror and the love run through you while watching. It's one of the few movies I've cried at! Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet are brilliant in this and so are the rest of the cast! The greatest movie ever!!

    LOVE IT!!!!!!!

    I luv this movie! i saw it 4 the first time a couple of months ago and fell instantly in love with all the characters. especially Jack! so cute! the only thing that was dissappointing in it was the cussing, nudity, and the scene in the back of the car. I don't recomend this movie for kids under 13. But other than that, a great, fantastic movie! My definite favorite!!!!!*****
