Because Titanic sinking was the most infamous event of 1912. I saw Titanic II and I must admit that it wasn't so bad after all.Read more >

There is an upcoming documentary about the six surviving Chinese sailors in Third Class that survived the sinking and were never heard from again (thanks to racial discrimination). This researchers were tasked into finding pictures of the men and find out how long did they live and meet with their relatives.

According to what I have gathered on the James Cameron's Titanic about the movie extras:
- There were a total of 18,000 extras employed for the film.
- 150 stayed the entire six months (October of 1996 to March of 1997) for shooting on the RMS Titanic set, they were the Core Extras.
- 500 of them worked as the people in the water that were there for two weeks (that's how long the open water sequences took to shoot).
- 2,000 extras were hired for three day shoots.
- There were a total of 18,000 extras employed for the film.
Hey guys, just so you know, I am wanting to complete all the Passenger pages myself. I have already done half of them, and now, after embarking on this trial/journey, I want to complete it.Read more >
I created this based on how the script should look like.

For the 2012 mini-series, there were 2,500 extras.
“It took three months to build and dress the main Titanic stage. We can have 250 people on deck at any one time, but once you’ve got 50 to 60 crew members, plus our stuntmen and actors, it adds up to 250 quite quickly” - Producer Chris ThompsonRead more >
DiCaprio and Winslet, unless idiotic with their finances, should be more than financially secure. It would be nice if they could just give the people what they want and work with people, recruiting as many as they can to make a low (or high) budget YouTube video that implements the fire theory that was recently put out.
I just like actors to do things for their fans and it would stretch the actors' creativity.Read more >
I know this theory is pretty much taboo, but it is interesting. What are your thoughts on it? Is the wreck at the bottom of the Atlantic really Olympic, there on purpose all in a big insurance scam? Is it possible? Highly unlikely, but really compelling evidence. Thoughts?...Read more >
When I first gained an interest in the Titanic, I was somewhat younger and less observant of historical accuracy, so I tended not to notice if a work of fiction contained a historical error. At the time, I just read as many books featuring the Titanic as I could.
However, now that I'm older, as I read works of fiction set on the Titanic, I notice a lot of little things, or common errors that seem repetitive among not-fully-researched historical fictions.
Common errors I tend to come across in books:
1. Boat Launch Sequence of Events
Authors seem to like to reorder the launch sequence of the boats. Or maybe it's more that they just don't look it up and get that particular detail straight, I suppose.
But anyways, the example: Character misses boa…Read more >
I am building the largest Titanic model in South Africa called the "TINTANIC" model ship. I am also writing a book about the construction of this most wonderful model which is three phase - called "TINTANIC, Practically Unthinkable!". I am writing the chapters to include 1912 historical events which occured on the Titanic time line featuring passengers and crew of the voyage of importance or relevance, then including historical archival information (story line) from the now closed Titanic Society of South Africa (of which I own all the rights pertaining to documents etc.) and finally writing about the "TINTANIC" model - documenting her meticulous construction down to the rivet.
I have a question though relating to use of public domain..…Read more >

For a few years I thought that the Titanic would have survived if she had hit the Iceberg head-on. However I did not take into account until just a little while ago the force that that would have created. A 46,000 ton ship traveling 22 knots hits an iceberg weighing a minimum of 100,000 tons, the collision would create a powerful force that causes incredible destruction. The impact would cause the ship's structure to flex, popping rivets and splitting seams, just as in the actual collison, but in this case along the ENTIRE length of the hull, opening up several more compartments to the sea. This is a scenario where Titanic would have sunk in minutes, rather than hours. If anyone thinks this therory is wrong please leave a comment. I also f…Read more >

I'll put in on this blog description of unidentified Titanic victims.
Maybe we can see if there will be any contributors who can possibly give an identity for them.Read more >
Happy 101's anniversary, Titanic! It's sad that you had to hit the iceberg and sink below the waters of the Atlantic 101 years ago today, but one thing is for sure: you will never be forgotten as long as I or anyone else lives. In memory of the 1500 people who went down with the ship that fateful, cold night. May you live on forever in the truly unsinkable Titanic known as Heaven! God bless everyone!

Remember back when you first heard of Titanic. Why were you fascinated with a disaster at sea almost a century ago? What got you drawn to it? Did you watch a documentary about it? Did you watch an old black and white film? Or was it a love story where Titanic was the background of the story? If you didn't watch about it, what got you started from either learning it about at school or reading a book about. Love to hear how everyone got their beginning.Read more >
I just found something new out. After watching a special on History Channel about the Titanic, I learned that there were two main suspension joints. The forward suspension joint was near where the bow was. And then the aft suspension joint was where the ship broke in two. This means that if the suspension joint was stronger, the ship may not have broken in two, that it broke in two because of the weak aft suspension joint. Should we put this on the page or not?Read more >

If you're on the Titanic Wiki, you're clearly more than aware that Titanic is being re-released in 3-D on April 4th, 2012. In fact, you've probably already bought your tickets (if not, click here). What you may not know is that Harper Design as just come out with a brand new paperback edition of the best-selling book James Cameron's Titanic. The re-issue features a slick new cover (at right) and a new foreword by Cameron himself, who has been in the news recently for becoming the first man to descend into the Mariana Trench, the deepest and most unexplored part of the ocean and the world. Hmmm, I wonder where he caught the deep-sea exploration bug?
Anyway, the new book's most redeeming feature is the inclusion of 26 never-before-seen images …Read more >
