Titanic 3D: Neil Degrasse Tyson Gets Sky Changed
The night sky in the re-release of James Cameron's epic 1997 film Titanic will be adjusted after astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson criticized Cameron for using the wrong sky scene for what would have been seen in April, when Titanic sank.
James Cameron's epic 1997 movie "Titanic" is about to be re-released and re-packaged in a 3D presentation to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the ocean liner on April 15, 1912. Although few changes have been made to the movie itself, there is one tweak that will impress astronomers.
Spurred on by a "snarky" message from astrophysicist and outspoken science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson, Cameron has addressed Tyson's criticism that the incorrect star field was used during one of the film's most famous scenes, when Rose, played by Kate Winslet, is looking up into the night sky contemplating her survival.
The starfield above Rose, played by Kate Winslet, would not have been the same as the one a real passenger at that latitude and longitude at that time of day in 1912 would have seen it, Tyson noted. He messaged the message to noted perfectionist James Cameron, who adjusted the 3D re-release of the film accordingly, according to Discovery.
The Telegraph notes that the adjustment is the only major technical change to the drama.
So they'll completely ignore the fact that Jack Dawson had plenty of damn room to fit on that floating door and Rose was just a rich, selfish b*tch that wanted the whole thing to herself.
