Titanic: 20 Years Later with James Cameron

I just found out that this documentary is making its debut on Sunday, November 26th at 9 pm Eastern Standard Time on the National Geographic Channel. This is the basic synopsis:

"Titanic: 20 Years Later With James Cameron looks back at all the critical choices made during the film and puts them to the test facing a wealth of new resources — including new underwater footage, computer-generated simulation, and scholarly research. Cameron speaks with the descendants of John Jacob Astor, Molly Brown, and Isidor and Ida Straus, bringing renewed awareness to the generations of families impacted by the loss of the Titanic. Taking audiences through his personal journey in making the film, Cameron creates a living history, giving context to the choices he made during production based on the historical facts and science available at the time. Looking through the filter of the film itself, and the choices Cameron made as writer, producer and director, Titanic: 20 Years Later With James Cameron explores the movie through a fresh lens utilizing intelligence compiled over the past 20 years.

To consider the evolution of knowledge since the film was made, Cameron assembles a team of the world’s leading Titanic experts, including National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Dr. Robert Ballard, who discovered the Titanic in 1985 and is on camera with Cameron in their first joint interview ever. Also included are Parks Stephenson (historian, documentarian and naval systems engineer), Don Lynch (historian and author) and Ken Marschall (visual historian and world’s foremost creator of Titanic artwork)."

And to top it all off, it's also going to feature content that is provided by the developers of the video game "Titanic: Honor and Glory". If you ask me, I'd say I'm pretty excited about this. What do you think?

Now that's a nice preview... That's right, folks, the director of "Titanic" and the discoverer of the real ship itself working side-by-side for the first time!

I’m also very excited about the new sinking simulation. Wondering what will be different about it this time, given that about only five years have passed since the last official one.
Okay I think I found the reason...
I think Samuel Halpern wins this round: The Answer was Money!

This seems really odd however, given as mentioned above they not only did they show ''The Final Word'' documentary back in 2012, but they also released the new 3D version to celebrate the 100 anniversary anyway. Why do it again just a few years later?

The Trailer is literally the same one from 2012!


When has it never been about money? The Titanic museum in Belfast feels like a dedication to the ship and the film.

The 'I'm flying statue' at the entrance of the museum.
