Newly released in 3D, 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. Titanic ranked as the most expensive film in Hollywood history at the time of its original release, and became the most successful. Writer-director James Cameron employed state-of-the-art digital special effects for this production. 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 the56-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 fiancĂ© 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.
