PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
A seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic.
The staircase is not technically accurate, being slightly larger in the film than it was in real life. This is because people in 1997 were a bit taller than in 1912 so they would have looked out of place on a staircase that fit the correct dimensions.
Thirteen meters; you should see it.
Brock Lovett: OK; take her up and over the bow rail.
When Jack asks Rose to dance, Rose's hands change position from in her lap to on the table in-between shots.
There are no opening credits after the title has been shown.
The film's IMAX 3D & 3D Blu-ray release presents the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and home video. For example, more of Rose's naked body is shown, including her full behind when she drops the robe and a clear view of both breasts when she begins to lay down on the couch. Also notably, during the final plunge Jack and Rose are seen on the top of the railing, which wasn't visible in the original theatrical widescreen version. The open matte version also removes boom mics and other camera equipment that was originally noticeable in the original Super 35 camera negative because of James Cameron strapping black gaffe tape on the video monitors during filming. For example, in the scene when Cal yells at Rose, during breakfast, telling her that she's his wife if not yet practiced by law and that she'll honor him, a small shadow of the boom mic is visible.
