Became a world-wide pop cultural phenomenon upon its release, with an impressive box office result that was largely due to positive word of mouth and an uninterrupted 15-week streak at the no. 1 position. It was considered the breakthrough role of Leonardo DiCaprio, and this "Leomania" undoubtedly contributed to the fact that over 45% of female attendants of 25 years and younger had seen it twice in theaters at one point. The film renewed interest in Titanic itself, with libraries reporting that they couldn't keep books about Titanic on the shelf for weeks at a time. Some books, like the novel "A Night to Remember" and the official inquiry report, had to be re-printed to meet demand. Some restaurants offered Titanic-themed menus, stores made millions by selling authentic-looking Titanic props, and cruise lines did solid business for several years afterwards. They noted that many couples were disappointed to learn that most ships do not allow a recreation of the famous "I'm flying" scene at the bow, for safety reasons; there were also increased inquiries about the number of lifeboats aboard.

James Cameron made a notable change for the 3-D release in 2012. After being told by Neil deGrasse Tyson that the starfield in the sinking scene would not have been visible from that location at that time of year, Cameron replaced it with a view of the correct starfield. Additions of stars in the background were made for all of the night exterior shots of the ship for the 3-D release in 2012. See more »
Haunting, Powerfully Resonant And Visually Stunning
James Cameron's 'Titanic' shares a similar motto to Marmite, "you either love it or hate it", I for one love this film, yes I know it's got a drawn out romance story, but there's just something about the 3-hour fill of the film that makes its such a spectacularly emotional and beautiful movie. I saw this a lot when I was growing up, this was one of the films of my childhood, it is truly a powerfully resonant and visually stunning movie of epic proportions. Personally I favour the British original 'A Night to Remember', but this is a pretty close contender. Winner of 11 Oscars, James Cameron's romantic-disaster epic is a triumph of cinema that boasts perfect chemistry between Kate and Leo as the lovers bound for tragedy. Many people disregard this film nowadays solely because it's become the most popular film ever made alongside Cameron's other epic 'Avatar', and whilst 'Titanic' is definitely not one of my favourite films, it's just so powerfully amazing and no doubt at all it has once brought a tear to everyone's eyes. The main aspect I love in this film is James Horner's haunting score that was a key ingredient in the film's success, it is simply perfect, too bad Celine Dion had to close this on her awful pop version. Nonetheless, 'Titanic' is a modern classic and a beautifully spectacular film that will live on.
