84 years later, a 100 year-old woman named Rose DeWitt Bukater tells the story to her granddaughter Lizzy Calvert, Brock Lovett, Lewis Bodine, Bobby Buell and Anatoly Mikailavich on the Keldysh about her life set in April 10th 1912, on a ship called Titanic when young Rose boards the departing ship with the upper-class passengers and her mother, Ruth DeWitt Bukater, and her fiancé, Caledon Hockley. Meanwhile, a drifter and artist named Jack Dawson and his best friend Fabrizio De Rossi win third-class tickets to the ship in a game. And she explains the whole story from departure until the death of Titanic on its first and last voyage April 15th, 1912 at 2:20 in the morning.Written by

Captain Smith was entitled to the Royal Naval Reserve (RNR) Decoration (the RD) and the Transport Medal. The actor is wearing the RD suspended from the ribbon of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve (RNVR) Long Service and Good Conduct Medal. His Transport Medal is in fact the Royal Naval Long Service and Good Conduct Medal. See more »

Although a co-production between Paramount Pictures and Twentieth Century Fox, either one of the logos appears at the beginning: Paramount in the US version and Fox in the international version. Yet ironically, Paramount is mentioned first in the international credits while Fox is mentioned first in the US credits. See more »
The 70mm print shown at the Odeon Cinema Leicester Square (London, UK) is rumored to have included a scene of two mariners looking on at the Titanic launching distress flares. They dismiss them/misunderstand by concluding that they are celebratory fireworks. This is not in several 35mm prints. See more »
Firstly and foremostly, I am a guy, which (in most cases) means I did not go see Titanic to see DiCaprio...although I think he can be a great actor. Reading through earlier comments, i grew a bit weary of hearing about lame script and shallow characters. I went to see a ship sink...the plot and the characters were, at least to me, a kind of icing on the Cake. I actually think a lot of the characters were done well; that is, by the time they die in freezing water, you actually felt a tinge of sadness for them. But , by the time Titanic was over, I was sufficiently moved to make me tell people that it was a great movie. Kate Winslet was good, Kathy Bates was perfect, Leo was ok (I'll give you people that - I've seen him shine like I know he can ... Basketball Diaries, Romeo & Juliet). But ultimately, the Titanic sinks...and it was absolutely stunning. Bravo to Cameron. He didn't just show us a large ship sinking, he showed us the back half of it crashing down on a hundred freezing, drowning people; he showed us a third class mother attempting to sing her children to sleep because she knew they were all doomed (broke my heart - i cried the most right there at that point), he showed people who worked extremely hard to get OUT of the bowels of the ship only to be sucked back in when a random window shattered and the water carried them on back in...detail. I like detail in a movie. Very impressive job.
