To celebrate its future relaunch, the CinePOP made a list with some backstage triviawhich you can check below:

Furthermore, the collision with the iceberg it took 37 seconds – the same time as the collision scene in the movie.
  • During the scene where water invades the Grand Staircase room, the filmmakers only had one shot to shoot it, as the scenery and furniture would be completely destroyed.

  • The hands that draw Rose are not DiCaprio’s, but Cameron’s. In post-production, Cameron, who is left-handed, mirrored the image so that the artist would appear right-handed, like DiCaprio.
  • Cameron did 12 dives for the real Titanic and commented that the experience was very exciting and breathtaking. During his first trip, he was so focused that he was able to shoot all the takes he wanted; however, when he returned to the surface, he burst into tears after realizing the magnitude of the historic tragedy he had witnessed. Eventually, he spent more time with the liner than the passengers.
  • When Jack is getting ready to draw Rose, he tells her: “over there in bed… on the couch”. The original line said “lay on the couch”, but DiCaprio made a mistake and Cameron loved how it turned out, leaving the sequence in the final cut.

  • Reportedly, Cameron talked to each of the extras (approximately 150 people) and gave them names and backstories of passengers from Titanic to adopt and embody in the work.
  • Cameron was determined not to include any songs in the film, not even in the end credits, as he did not believe they would be a good addition to the tone of the work. the composer James Hornerhowever, was struggling to finish the film in an exciting way and secretly met with the lyricist Will Jennings and the singer Celine Dion to write “My Heart Will Go On”, using the film’s central musical theme as a melody. Cameron ended up loving the song and kept it to the end. The result? The track took home the Oscar for best original song.
  • Nominated for the category of Best Supporting Actress at age 87, Gloria Stuart, who played the older version of Rose, became the oldest person to be nominated for an Oscar. Stuart carried that record for nineteen years, until Christopher Plummer be indicated to Best Supporting Actorat 88.

  • A recent investigation has shown that if the Titanic had collided with the iceberg from the front, it would not have sunk. Despite sustaining extensive damage, the liner would not have sunk and would arrive in New York City a day or two late.
  • Johnny Depp had been considered for the role of Jack and even received an offer. However, the actor turned down the project and, to this day, considers it one of the biggest regrets of his career.
