Both Cameron films have now earned over 2 billion dollars.
Was it great acting, writing, and directing that made the movie so outstanding, or was it people’s fascination with the “unsinkable” Titanic?
The RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner operated by the White Star Line.
It struck an iceberg during its maiden voyage on 15 April 1912, and sank, after being billed as impossible to sink.
That tragedy took the lives of over 1500 people (there were 2224 passengers and crew aboard).
It is, to this day, the deadliest peacetime sinking of a cruise liner.
If you haven’t watched the film already, set aside an afternoon or evening, and give it a go.
