James Cameron's regular Michael Biehn was nearly cast as Cal Hockley and attended numerous meetings with Cameron to discuss the role. Pierce Brosnan, Rupert Everett, Peter Greene, William Hurt, Jason Isaacs, Rob Lowe, Matthew McConaughey, Adrian Paul and Rufus Sewell were also considered, though ultimately the part went to Billy Zane.
Thirteen meters; you should see it.
Brock Lovett: OK; take her up and over the bow rail.
The underwater shots of the propellers are incorrect. The famous photo of the ship in dry dock and the men standing under the propellers clearly shows that the propellers were bolted together with giant nuts as was the practice at that time. The underwater shots of the propellers show smooth metal (no bolt heads/nuts) suggesting welding, which were not available until WWII.
There are no opening credits after the title has been shown.
