Let’s face it, most of us are obsessed with the film. Not only was it a tragic story, it was also a romatic one that featured not only Leonardo Dicaprio but Kate Winslet. I’m obsessed. (Also, no one can forget the theme song, Celine Dion is a legend.)

Titanic Facts, Secrets Of The Titanic
Here are some fun facts about the actual sinking of the Titanic, and the movie:
- The Titanic hit an iceberg shortly before midnight on April 14th, 1912 and sank only a couple hours later on April 15th, 1912. The event happened at an alarmingly fast rate.
- The studios wanted Matthew McConaughey to play Jack instead of Leonardo DiCaprio. (James Cameron really wanted Leonardo Dicaprio.)
- The Titanic cost roughly 7.5 million to build. With the rate of inflation, $7.5 million would convert to over $200 million today.
- There were 20,000 bottles of beer on the Titanic, all for first class passengers.
- James Cameron drew every single sketch in Jack’s binder, including the famous nude one of Rose.
- The titanic was over 52 THOUSAND tons and just under 900 feet long.
- There were only 20 lifeboats…
- The movie was released in video when it was still in theaters. (It was the first movie to do so.)
- Milton S. Hershey had a ticket for the Titanic but didn’t board the ship.
