titanic trivia


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 have a theory that 80s Joey is basically the Bob Ross of DC. Do you agree with that assessment?

bob ross never really reached my country so i only know about him through memes and gifsets as Kind Afro Artist Dad, but this seems pretty accurate

just call bruce already, dick


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)


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.

anonymous asked:

What's behind the Blue Rabbits Fucking joke?

Patrick sang a song for a short parody of the movie Avatar on the show Robot Chicken, and the song was Blue Rabbits Fucking. That’s it. That’s all it is. Here is the skit and song.

Bonus trivia: Patrick did some other voices for that episode, including the voice of Morpheus in this Matrix parody and Roadblock in this G.I. Joe one.  He also hates the movie Avatar and James Cameron’s films in general (with the exception of Abyss) and has never seen Titanic.


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.

Many of the paintings in the film, were authentic. For example, Pablo Picasso’s «The Guitar Player» was flown in from the Musée National d'Art Moderne in Paris. In addition, most of the decor on the ship, from the carpet to the chandeliers, were reconstructed by, or under the supervision of, the original companies which furnished the Titanic.

Titanic (film) trivia: The steerage party scene was filmed on October 28th 1996 and required one day of shooting only. Both Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio learned how to dance the polka for the shooting. All of the extras were professional dancers and the band seen performing in the film was an actual folkloric band called ‘Gaelic Storm’ who were performing live on set. This was Kate Winslet’s favorite scene to shoot. She says: “It wasn’t about water or anything else that had to do with the film. I didn’t have to look so pristine all the time. I got to be much more relaxed. Leo was throwing me around and I was throwing him around. It was really a tremendous atmosphere down there.”


Titanic (film) trivia: During the scene when Jack is sorrowfully looking at Rose being lowered in the lifeboat, the moment a distress rocket appears right behind Leonardo DiCaprio was a lucky accident. Director James Cameron tried launching the flares hoping they would appear in frame but there was no assured way of knowing where they would specifically explode into the sky, which made it improbable to be precisely in frame with the actor. Cameron was very happy when he discovered, during dailies, the lucky shot made it on film.


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.”


Titanic (film) trivia: The ‘Titanic’ Los Angeles premiere was held on December 14, 1997 at Mann Chinese Theater in Hollywood. 1500 fans and heaps of A-List stars attended the event for the highly anticipated film.

(Kate Winslet was unable to make an appearance since she was in London, attending her childhood sweetheart’s funeral)
