At first, Paramount was about to cast Matthew McConaughey as Jack opposite Kate Winslet which Kate confessed on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert that she even auditioned with him too. But then later, Leonardo DiCaprio was cast as per James Cameron's request. See more »

The film's IMAX 3D & 3D Blu-ray release presents the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and home video. For example, more of Rose's naked body is shown, including her full behind when she drops the robe and a clear view of both breasts when she begins to lay down on the couch. Also notably, during the final plunge Jack and Rose are seen on the top of the railing, which wasn't visible in the original theatrical widescreen version. The open matte version also removes boom mics and other camera equipment that was originally noticeable in the original Super 35 camera negative because of James Cameron strapping black gaffe tape on the video monitors during filming. For example, in the scene when Cal yells at Rose, during breakfast, telling her that she's his wife if not yet practiced by law and that she'll honor him, a small shadow of the boom mic is visible.

Despite a lot of plot flaws and conveniences, this really is one of the best films ever made.
Ah, yes, the film that propelled Leonardi DiCapro to super stardom, became the first film to gross $1 billion, and stayed on the top of the box office charts for 12 years (only to be kicked off the top by another James Cameron film, Avatar).
It is said 'Titanic' is the film with the most continuity errors of all films. Despite this, though, the film was indeed a masterpiece. The sheer scale of the sets and entire production were simply mind blowing! The sinking of the Titanic was the greatest ship sinking scene EVER and was done with such meticulous detail that one would think they actually really sunk the ship. Off course, that was not the case, though, as it were all (very elaborate) sets, most of which were destroyed during the making of the film.
Leonardo made for a very likable hero, quite frankly one a lot of guys can relate to. The young lovers were so different and yet so alike, and their love story was almost endearing. I must admit, the jumping backwards and forwards in time was a bit unnecessary and resulted in an overlong epic. They should only have told the 1912 story. Apart from that, the film was thrilling, exciting and fascinating in every sense of the word!
