120 min

of the sinking.

From iceberg to bottom,

it's never been animated so precisely

and so dramatically.

We're determined, once and for all,

to learn what happened

after Titanic disappeared

beneath the surface 100 years ago.

after Titanic disappeared

beneath the surface 100 years ago.

It's a good, just kind of

drive-a-stake-in-the-ground moment

for us to say, "Let's get the history right."

To me, the exercise of making the movie

and preparing to make the movie

was about understanding history.

Like, what is history?

History is

this kind of consensus hallucination.

There are some people who, they tell

the story like it happened yesterday.

And then there are others who,

over the years, have been telling the story

and the story changes, you know?

So, yeah.

And how much does the telling of the story

become the memory,

as opposed to the memory itself?

Our task here is to

separate perception from truth.

So what is it that we know for sure?

At the time of her construction,

Titanic was the largest ship ever built,

269 meters long

and standing nearly 20 stories high.

Her weight was over 46,000 tons.

Her hull spanned four city blocks.

She had nine decks

encompassing 370 first-class cabins,

168 second-class cabins,

and 297 third-class cabins.

Accommodations for up to 3,547 people.



Mechanically, she was state of the art,

fitted with 29 boilers and 159 furnaces.

Each of her steam engines

was the size of a three-story house.

Over 6,000 tons of coal

filled her coal bunkers.

From her innovative double-bottom keel,

to her 16 water-tight compartments,

Titanic. was considered unsinkable.

Each compartment had doors

that were designed to close automatically

if the water level

rose above a certain height.
