James Cameron‘s Titanic is officially 25 years old. It premiered in theaters on December 19, 1997, and despite concerns it wouldn’t break even after an extensive 2.5 year production, the action romance epic went on to break MULTIPLE records!
With a production budget of $200 million, it was the most extravagant film to be made at that time. Cameron himself even WENT DOWN to the wreckage site of the RMS Titanic, 13,000 feet below the surface of the Atlantic ocean, to get real footage for the disaster flick. It paid off, though. With average ticket prices at the time being around $6, Titanic went on to earn an initial worldwide gross of 1.84 BILLION DOLLARS! Yep, it was the first movie to ever reach billion status. Moviegoers loved watching Leo and Kate Winslet so much, many of them kept going back to watch it again and again. It was #1 at the box office every single week until April 1998, when it was finally dethroned by Lost In Space. Still, even without the top spot, fans were dedicated, keeping Jim’s passion project (LOLz) in the cinema all the way through October 1, 1998.
A true feat!!
On April 4, 2012, a 3D version was released, bringing its total gross to $2.195 billion. Fans were eager to go back and relive the sweeping storyline.
After all, Titanic wasn’t just a commercial success, its critical acclaim landed it 14 Oscar nominations and 11 wins, including Best Picture (if that wasn’t obvious by now). But those are just the boring business facts! On to the fun facts…
