Apart from the long, grueling and technically difficult shoot, director James Cameron stated that one of the biggest obstacles he faced was the increasingly negative press coverage. When the industry trade papers got wind of the epic delays, cost overruns, set safety issues and missed delivery dates, they started to relentlessly characterize the production as a waste of money and a sure box office bomb. Cameron suggested to the studios not to go into aggressive defense, but remain silent, in the hope that the press would run out of stories to print before the movie's premiere (or, in his own words, "step back and let them go flying past, and fall because of their own inertia"). Cameron also organized two premieres outside the USA, one in Tokyo and one in the UK (with Prince Charles in attendance), in the hopes that positive word of mouth from the still unbiased foreign press would force the American press to put aside their prejudices. Both strategies worked, as Titanic opened in the USA to rave reviews. See more »

Jack and Fabrizio are on the ship's bow) are Pacific white-sided dolphins. The Titanic was in the North Atlantic. See more »

This movie re-wrote film history in every way. No one cares what anyone thinks about this movie, because it transcends criticism. Every flaw in the movie is easily overcome by the many amazing things the movie has going for it. It is an extremely beautiful movie, and I doubt many of us will see anything like it again. I've seen it more times than I care to count, and I still become transfixed every time, with a feeling which is hard to describe. One for the ages.
