The film is being re-released almost exactly 100 years after the real Titanic set sail.

Shortly before midnight on 14 April 1912, the passenger liner struck an iceberg on its way from Southampton to New York. It sank less than three hours later, killing 1,517 people.

Director James Cameron rejected suggestions that the re-release was simply an attempt to make money on the 100th anniversary of the tragedy.

“Yeah, you know look – there’s always going to be people that can —- in the soup of anything good. But frankly I think that remembering Titanic, remembering the history – that’s what the film was there for.

That’s why I made it, you know. I was fascinated by the story, I was fascinated by the history, the people that were heroic, the people that lost their lives.
