"There was peace and the world had an even tenor to it’s way. Nothing was revealed in the morning the trend of which was not known the night before. It seems to me that the disaster about to occur was the event that not only made the world rub it’s eyes and awake but woke it with a start keeping it moving at a rapidly accelerating pace ever since with less and less peace, satisfaction and happiness. To my mind the world of today awoke April 15th, 1912."

-Jack B. Thayer, Titanic Survivor





Anonymous asked: [This] GIF ("You jump, I jump, right?"[If you can, please post this GIF; I've been looking for ages...]) inexplicably drove me to see Titanic. Not sorry about my relationship with this film being my most enduring love affair...

You mean this one?

(Apologies to whoever made it - this gif has been reposted so many times I have no clue who to credit…)






Anonymous asked: aaah wait I got it wrong. she would be born in 1895. She died with 100 years, so the movie would have to be set in 1995. no wreck being found here so I have no idea =( did cameron ever talked about this? for some reason I think we should know her birthday but I don't know why it's relevant, I just can't believe he wouldn't talk about it since he's such into details.

(The wreck was found in 1985).

Well, when Rose tells her story she says “It’s been 84 years” which would mean the modern day scenes are set in 1996. Brock says Rose is going to turn 101 the following month so that would mean Rose would have been born in 1895 making her 100 about to turn 101 in 1996.

We don’t know which month the modern day scenes are set in (Though we can presume they are not set in April as that probably would have been mentioned).

The movie was originally supposed to be released in the summer of 1996, and given what the characters are wearing at Rose’s house it looks unlikely to be winter and my guess is it would be May/June time. Which would mean Rose would have turned 17 in May/June 1911 and would have turned 18 after the sinking of the Titanic.
