James Cameron is a visionary. Yes, he’s known for Aliens, Terminator and Avatar, but perhaps the thing he’ll be best remembered for is Titanic. And the pioneering work he did in getting down to the wreck of that great ship and bringing the audience up close and personal with it.
Last week Cameron flew into Belfast to visit the world’s greatest Titanic musuem, and to talk about the ship, the movie and the legacy. FTN has the interviews and the footage.
Renowned director James Cameron has visited the wreck of the RMS Titanic 33 times and will continue his exploration of the “ship of dreams” with his very first trip to the birthplace of the legendary ship in Belfast where the Titanic was built. The spectacular new Titanic Belfast Museum is located 100 yards in front of where Titanic’s hull was launched; to its right is the drawing office where she was designed and to the left is the River Lagan where she first set sail.
Cameron and producer Jon Landau will induct an original exhibit at the world’s largest Titanic museum. The new exhibit will feature props and costumes from some of the film’s most memorable scenes including Jack’s corduroy pants, Rose’s “sinking” dress and First Officer Murdoch’s uniform, along with a deckhand’s outfit. The Titanic film exhibit will also feature the steering wheel and telegraph, part of Cameron’s personal collection of props used in the film.
