Titanic script
Titanic (1997)
Synopsis: James Cameron's "Titanic" is an epic, action-packed romance set against the ill-fated maiden voyage of the R.M.S. Titanic; the pride and joy of the White Star Line and, at the time, the largest moving object ever built. She was the most luxurious liner of her era -- the "ship of dreams" -- which ultimately carried over 1,500 people to their death in the ice cold waters of the North Atlantic in the early hours of April 15, 1912.

CUT WIDER, to show that Brock is operating the camera himself, turning it

in his hand so it points at his own face.

LOVETT:

Thanks, Tolya. Work with me, here.

Brock resumes his serious, pensive gaze out the front port, with the camera

aimed at himself at arm's length.

LOVETT:

It still gets me every time... to see the sad ruin of the great ship

sitting here, where she landed at 2:30 in the morning, April 15, 1912,

after her long fall from the world above.

Anatoly rolls his eyes and mutters in Russian. Bodine chuckles and watches

the sonar.

BODINE:

You are so full of shit, boss.

7 Mir Two drives aft down the starboard side, past the huge anchor while

Mir One passes over the seemingly endless forecastle deck, with its massive

anchor chains still laid out in two neat rows, its bronze windlass caps

gleaming. The 22 foot long subs are like white bugs next to the enormous

wreck.

LOVETT (V.O.)

Dive nine. Here we are again on the deck of Titanic... two and a half miles

down. The pressure is three tons per square inch, enough to crush us like a

freight train going over an ant if our hull fails. These windows are nine

inches thick and if they go, it's sayonara in two microseconds.

8 Mir Two lands on the boat deck, next to the ruins of the Officer's

Quarters. Mir One lands on the roof of the deck hous nearby.

LOVETT:

Right. Let's go to work.

Bodine slips on a pair of 3-D electronic goggles, and grabs the joystick

controls of the ROV.

9 OUTSIDE THE SUB, the ROV, a small orange and black robot called SNOOP

DOG, lifts from its cradle and flies forward.

BODINE (V.O.)
