Titanic (film) trivia: The shooting star was a motif originally meant to be seen a few times throughout the film but ended being omitted in the final cut. Shooting stars became associated with death during a deleted scene as Jack mentions they symbolize a soul going to heaven. A shooting star was meant to be seen later in the film as Rose is lying on the wooden panel looking at the constellation, indicating Jack had passed away and his soul was crossing over.

I finally come to a stop in front of Marco. He looks up at me, eyes glazed and unfocused. His hands rest limp in his lap, the right broken and bruised, but his eyes are back to normal. Almost. The right is still ringed with a thin band of blood.
I call his name. The sound echoes distant and spirals into the rift, but it is not lost on him. His eyes clear a little, focusing on me. I extend my hands to him.
He slides his fingers into mine, weak and shaking, and I pull him gently to me, wrapping him in my arms.

I don’t even have the words to describe just how amazing this fic is. If you haven’t read it, give yourself a treat and do so.

Don Bluth’s Titan A.E. was first released on June 16, 2000, and was Bluth’s final film.

Because Titan A.E. didn’t do well at the box-office, 20th Century Fox closed its animation studios in Arizona after only two feature films, the first being Anastasia (1997). Fox then contacted Blue Sky studios to produce animated films using 3D computer graphics such as Ice Age (2002) and Robots (2005). (x)

Titanic (film) trivia: None of the paintings seen in Rose’s suite were on the Titanic in 1912. James Cameron had written them into the story to reveal character. Picasso for Rose (who admires his courage to try new things), Monet for Jack (who likes his visual truth), and Degas because he almost exclusively painted joyful dancers, indicative of the way Rose wants to feel. Degas’ “The Star - Dancer on the Stage” painting is always present in the room when Rose has confrontations with Cal or her mother.

Titanic (film) trivia: On September 19 1996, Dicaprio arrived on the Titanic set and for his first day of filming was charged with the formidable task of sketching Winslet’s voluptuous form. It just happened to work out that the first scene Kate and Leo shot for the film involved her dropping her clothes, but the timing, the director says, was fortuitous. “It created a kind of tension and nervous-ness between them that served the scene very well.”
