"Titanic" was presented to a test audience at a theater in Edina, Minnesota, on July 14, 1997. Tickets to the showing were presented to the audience at the Jodie Foster movie "Contact" on its July 11 opening night at the theater at Mall of America in Bloomington. Because "Titanic" had been receiving considerable industry buzz (much of it bad, due in part to budget concerns), and not wanting to have press at the test showing, ticket recipients were told that they would be seeing an early version of "Great Expectations", starring Ethan Hawke and Gwyneth Paltrow. At the test screening, when Cameron and others were introducing the film, they continued to maintain the ruse by not mentioning the movie by name, only referring to it as "the movie you are about to see", etc. When the movie started, many in the audience were excited that (they thought) they were getting to see a new trailer for "Titanic", not yet realizing they were seeing the whole movie. Film personnel collected feedback in many ways--including handwritten surveys, post-film interviews, and even stationing personnel in the lobbies and restrooms to listen in on guests' conversations.

As the the lifeboat officers scan the water with their electric torches, looking for survivors, the pools of light cast onto the water do not match where they point the torches. The pools of light are obviously coming from off-screen spotlights, and the torch-bearers are frantically moving the torches around to try to point to where the spotlights are pointing. See more »

To all the miserable people who have done everything from complain about the dialogue, the budget, the this and the that....who wants to hear it? IF you missed the point of this beyond-beautiful movie, that's your loss. The rest of us who deeply love this movie do not care what you think. I am a thirthysomething guy who has seen thousands of movies in my life, and this one stands in its own entity, in my book. It was not supposed to be a documentary, or a completely factual account of what happened that night. It is the most amazing love story ever attempted. I know that it is the cynical 90's and the millennium has everyone in a tizzy, but come on. Someone on this comments board complained that it made too much money! How lame is that? It made bundles of money in every civilized country on the planet, and is the top grossing film in the planet. I will gladly side with the majority this time around. Okay, cynics, time to crawl back under your rock, I am done.
