Titanic’s 20th anniversary is truly the gift that keeps on giving, if you consider a “gift” to be 20-year-old, behind-the-scenes gossip from a sappy movie about a literal sinking ship. This week’s treasure? Leonardo DiCaprio was worried that his now-iconic role of Jack would be “too easy.”
Every year, the Library of Congress selects 25 movies to be added to the National Film Registry. These movies are chosen for their “cultural, historic and/or aesthetic importance” and I am happy to say that Titanic is FINALLY getting its due!!!
Kate Winslet nearly tore a hole in the space-time continuum on Thursday with a Huge Reveal: Matthew McConaughey, not Leonardo DiCaprio, was almost Jack Dawson, the soulful midwestern artist whose sex appeal was as central to the movie Titanic as the actual Titanic. She says that Paramount wanted McConaughey, but James…
I never had the privilege of seeing Titanic in theaters during its initial run. Given that I wasn’t yet 13 at the time, my parents—beholden to the MPAA—forbade me from seeing it. They did, however, allow me to rent it the following summer (it was released on two-tape VHS in September of 1998). So the first time I saw…
James Cameron, an easily-irritable man who is also kind of a dick, sounds like he’s sick and tired of answering questions about Titanic—arguably the best movie he’s made in his entire career.
It’s almost the 20th anniversary of Titanic. Don’t let that info make you feel old. You’re not old; you’re mature enough to sit through the entire film, for three hours and 15 minutes, without peeing your pants when it is re-released in theaters on December first.
Anyone with eyes and a brain can see that Jack could have gotten on the door with Rose and survived. Whether or not their relationship could have lived beyond a weekend cruise ship fuckfest will never be determined, but we finally have mathematical confirmation of what fans and Jezebel staffers have been screaming for…
Do you ever watch Titanic and whisper, yes, I want to be there, on one of the deadliest cruise ship disasters, as you gently caress your laptop screen on a paused shot of Leo DiCaprio’s face?
A water-stained letter from the Titanic written by an admirably realistic first class passenger on the ship’s stationary just sold for £126,000 at auction, a record sale for a note written on the ship.
We have literally known the answer to this question for twenty years, but we still cast it across the oceans of time. Did Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio do it???, I clicked this morning, and forever will.
Two decades after playing the legendary Wisconsin artist and philosopher Jack Dawson in James Cameron’s 1997 stunning biopic Titanic, Leonardo DiCaprio has been cast in the title role in Leonardo Da Vinci, based on Walter Isaacson’s upcoming biography of the same name.
If you are not a billionaire or mid-tier millionaire, please skip to the story about Evan Rachel Wood carrying around demon-repellant, as this only concerns the extremely rich who wouldn’t mind throwing at least ten million dollars to charity sometime in the near future.
Glad you asked.
It’s a tale as old as time (to quote another song by the chanteuse this post is about): Kate Winslet, star of Titanic, does not enjoy hearing Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” love theme of Titanic. In 2012, Winslet told MTV News that the song made her feel “like throwing up.” She then clarified: “No, I shouldn’t…
In case the heart wrenching spectacle of Cher singing “Believe” live at the Billboard Music Awards wasn’t enough to get you to actually tune in this year, the show runners have another Vegas-approved diva who will be taking the stage.
Almost every letter from the Titanic probably arrived coated in a fine layer of irony; however, nothing quite matches the ones where somebody describes their fine surroundings and says that everybody misses you and was so sorry you couldn’t come.
I love you, The Weeknd.
Beloved Emmy-winning actor Bill Paxton died at 61 on Sunday due to complications from surgery, People reports.
James Cameron, the man responsible for my favorite movie of all time, has decided to comment on a 5-year-old episode of Mythbusters in which the show’s team of scientists and mathematicians claimed that both Rose DeWitt-Bukater Calvert Dawson and her third class piece of ass Jack Dawson could have fit on that damn…
On April 19, 1912, a subcommittee of the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee held hearings on the sinking of the RMS Titanic in the newly built Kennedy Caucus Room of the Russell Senate Office Building. In the same room, 107 years later, Sen. Jeff Sessions is facing questioning from the Senate Judiciary Committee to be…
