A cautionary epic action-romance based on historical facts, James Cameron’s “Titanic” sets sail once again in Philippine cinemas on April 7 (Saturday) in 3D starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. First released in 1997, “Titanic” has remained the 2nd highest-grossing film of all time.
“Titanic” starts its maiden voyage with an agora of British nobility, American industrialists, New York’s and Philadelphia’s best and hopeful poor emigrants in a gilded era where star-crossed lovers Rose Dewitt Bukater (Winslet) and Jack Dawson (DiCaprio) met aboard the ill-fated passenger ship.
The largest and most luxurious moving machine ever built, Titanic is the pride of the White Star Line and at the time. Touted as the ship of dreams, Titanic carried over 1, 500 people to their death at the waters of North Atlantic when it hit an iceberg early morning of April 15, 1912. On board “Titanic,” the journey also sees ambitious fortune hunter (Bill Paxton) who is determined to plumb the treasures of this once-stately ship, only to bring to the surface a story left untold. Amidst the thick crowd of well-wishers before the ship’s sail, Rose and Jack would soon meet that would change their lives forever. Rose, a 17-year-old belonging to the upper class American society is suffocating under the rigid expectations of her time suddenly finds herself drawn to the free-spirited steerage passenger Jack. Rose and Jack's forbidden love begins a powerful mystery that ultimately echoes across the years into the present. Nothing on earth is going to come between them -- not even something as unimaginable as the sinking of Titanic.
Also on board the massive, marvelous Titanic are Cal Hockley (Billy Zane), heir to a huge fortune and Rose's fiancé and Ruth DeWitt Bukater (Frances Fisher), Rose's socially driven mother. Oscar® winner Kathy Bates is featured as the ship's most colorful real-life passenger, Molly Brown. Other historic figures include Captain E.J. Smith (Bernard Hill), White Star Line's managing director J. Bruce Ismay (Jonathan Hyde), and master shipbuilder and primary architect of Titanic, Thomas Andrews (Victor Garber). Also in this devastating hand of fate dealt to the passengers of Titanic are an Italian emigrant named Fabrizio De Rossi (Danny Nucci), Jack's poor but determined best friend; and Spicer Lovejoy (David Warner), Cal Hockley's ruthlessly loyal valet.
