I saw a trailer for Titanic on front of Alien: Resurrection and couldn't believe how good it looked. The last shot in the trailer of the camera looking down the stern as it's sinking was amazing on a giant screen and I was not prepared to see that.
That money was well worth it in the end since they were integral in the movie becoming a cultural phenomenon but I'm surprised either of them were making that much money back then.$2,000,000: Kate Winslet's salary for "Titanic."
$2,500,000: Leonardo DiCaprio's salary for "Titanic."
Yes those CGI people on the ship stick out like a sore thumb now, especially if you have a big monitor.The 1958 film A NIGHT TO REMEMBER was far superior to James Cameron's TITANIC which bordered on soap opera.All those digital people walking on the ship in the opening scenes looked terrible. Turning a historical and very tragic story into one that was mostly fiction ,was not the way to make a film on the TITANIC. I have watched A NIGHT TO REMEMBER numerous times and it always packs a punch.A Brilliant and very moving film . Cameron's version was A NIGHT TO FORGET.
And none of the model work in A Night To Remember looks terrible? Both movies did the best they could with the tools they had at the time they were made.The 1958 film A NIGHT TO REMEMBER was far superior to James Cameron's TITANIC which bordered on soap opera.All those digital people walking on the ship in the opening scenes looked terrible.
There's plenty of good scenes that got dropped (alot of the historical stuff) but the only one that I wish was still in the movie was the scene with Jack and Rose walking back to First Class while singing "Come Josephine". Using the song and her looking up at the stars earlier in the movie plays nicely into her floating on the wood after the ship sinks (the song coming back still works with the 'I'm flying' scene but the third time's the charm? ). Plus, seeing them having fun and being kids is an enjoyable character moment.I'm just watching the c. 45 minutes of deleted scenes on the extra blu-ray. Most of the time I agree with the scenes that are cut, but there are maybe a total of 10 minutes or so I might include in an alternate extended cut...
Yep.Was this slug that Jack gives to Lovejoy in one of the tv commercials?
