Titanic to Sail Again – Will You Get Onboard?

Titanic to Sail Again – But Will You Get Onboard?

It's the biggest Oscar winner of all time, but it's also a code word for disaster: Titanic.

Now, an Australian billionaire plans to recreate the legendary ship, and charge $1 million for a first-class cabin when his replica Titanic II re-traces the original 1912 route of the great ship that went down.

Once the new ship is built in China, its maiden voyage is scheduled for late 2016 and will hopefully go the full distance from England's Southampton to New York's West Side.

Its furnishings, said its financier Clive Palmer, will include a Turkish bath (just like on the original) and the ornate grand staircase which Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet descended in the 1997 James Cameron movie.

It will also have some things the original didn't: air-conditioning and enough lifeboats.

Before Peeta and Katniss broke box-office records, before Edward and Bella set tween hearts swooning, there was Jack and Rose.

Fifteen years ago, the youthful star-crossed lovers in 1997's Titanic – played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet – helped propel James Cameron's epic blockbuster into box-office history. The film earned $1.8 billion worldwide and scored 11 Oscars.

Now Titanic is sailing back into theaters on April 4, this time in 3D. To mark the re-release, which is taking place along with the 100th anniversary of the real sea disaster, PEOPLE spoke with Winslet and Cameron about their memories of the film – including a few surprises:

James Cameron Hits Bottom – of the Ocean

Originally posted 03/26/2012 08:15AM

Hollywood filmmaker James Cameron's career in scientific research went into a steep decline Monday, exactly as he planned it.

The Oscar-winning director of Titanic and Avatar became the first human to make a solo trip to the deepest part of the ocean – the so-called Challenger Deep spot, part of the Mariana Trench in the western Pacific Ocean, near Guam.

Cameron, 57, descended for two hours and 36 minutes and reached the spot at 7:52 a.m. local time Monday (5:52 p.m. ET Sunday), CNN reports. He spent two hours observing and collecting samples of material for research and then resurfaced after a 70-minute ascent.

Birthdays are always meaningful, but this one was particularly deep.

Avatar director James Cameron celebrated his 56th birthday on Monday with an unlikely voyage to the bottom of Russia's Lake Baikal, the world's oldest and deepest lake, Bloomberg reports.

Cameron, an underwater enthusiast since his pioneering work on The Abyss in the 1980s, explored the depths of Lake Baikal in a Mir mini-submarine – the same type of submersible craft he used in filming Titanic in the '90s.
