If you were a billionaire, how would you spend your vast fortune? Installing clean water systems in developing communities? Shopping sprees at Prada? Building an exact replica of a ship that sunk and killed 1500 people? If you chose the latter option, you’re on the same page as Australian billionaire Clive Palmer, who has contracted a Chinese shipbuilding company to make his dream come true, and just released artist renderings (shown above) and details about his plans for “Titanic II.” We’ve got the full scoop after the jump… Keep reading »
Lou Lou P’s Delights is a baker and culinary artist who creates painstakingly detailed reproductions of pop culture icons … in cake pop form. For example, here is the cast of “Titanic” made out of cake batter and popsicle sticks.

I saw ”Titanic” 10 times in 1997 when it came out in the theaters. Granted, I was 19 and living in Florence, Italy and I had a lot of time on my hands (clearly, since I spent more than 31 hours staring at it over a 12-week period), but it was a good movie.
Sure, now it seems cheesy and silly in parts — “I’m the king of the world!” — but I was still first in line on the opening day of “Titanic 3D.” It did not disappoint. Even though I am older and wiser now, I have been in love (I hadn’t then), and I generally think dying for someone you have known three days is kind of dumb (why couldn’t they BOTH get on that damn door?), it’s still a romantic weep-fest. Sigh.
Here are five reasons to see “Titanic 3D.” Read more…
James Cameron’s films always make a stylistic impact, from “Titanic”‘s Heart of the Ocean to the blue-skinned, pseudo-feline Na’vi people in “Avatar,” so it’s only natural that someone would eventually arrange to depict his instantly recognizable scenes in a high fashion way. In celebration of “Titanic”‘s 3D re-release, Harper’s Bazaar welcomes us to the world of James Cameron, in which model Hailey Clauson (yes, that Hailey Clauson) poses alongside the director’s most iconic images. I can’t help but feel that it’s a little strange to have Clauson, swathed in a pale pink fur and silk gown, leaning against a model of the Titanic (the tragedy of which, you know, actually happened), but the photo is beautifully striking nonetheless. My favorite, though? The model in a sequined ombre Blumarine dress, her skin fading into CGI as Neytiri looks on. [Harper's Bazaar]
Love it or hate it, “Titanic” is definitely back, and this time in 3-D. The stars of the film turned out to support the premiere in London this week, and it’s incredible to see that Kate Winslet seems to hardly have aged at all. What has changed — the media landscape around her. One in which a slew of strange reality stars with rainbow-tinged hair are now permitted to show up to the premieres of hit films and traipse the red carpet. But what you want to know is … what were they wearing? Check out their shining moments and sartorial mishaps in the slideshow above!
“I would really find it hard being as famous as I was so immediately when ‘Titanic’ came out. If that was happening today, I really don’t know how I would cope because there’s so much media exposure and so much scrutiny. I mean, there was [media exposure] back then, but now it’s just a little out of control. So I do feel there’s this responsibility in myself to speak steadfast and true, at least be something that a younger generation can look up to and go, ‘Oh she’s alright,’ and, ‘She hasn’t injected her face with anything,’ and ‘She’s got a normal figure.’ It’s important.”
Who says things like “speak steadfast and true” in ordinary conversation? Kate Winslet, I love you. Don’t go changing, ever. [Stylelist] Keep reading »
It’s been 14 years since “Titanic” came out, and I’m not sure about you, but I’ve spent most of that time quietly sobbing, practicing the chorus of “My Heart Will Go On,” and asking anyone with a pencil to draw me like one of their French girls. Looks like our hearts will go on: Paramount just released the official poster for “Titanic: 3D,” which will hit theaters April 6th, 2012 (the 100-year anniversary of the actual Titanic’s voyage). This gives us five months to emotionally prepare — better start now! [via The Hitlist]
We’ll never forget the scene in “Titanic” where Jack Dawson (Leo DiCaprio) sketches Rose Calvert (Kate Winslet) nude on a couch wearing the Heart of the Ocean. So sexy. Now one lucky bidder will be able to own the sketch, actually drawn by director James Cameron. The charming piece of memorabilia is expected to go for somewhere between $10,000 and $15,000 at auction. Do I hear $10,000 for naked Kate? [Telegraph UK] Keep reading »
I want to read Richard Yates’ “Revolutionary Road” before I see the film starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, but I hope I can get through it quickly, based on this adorable interview with the pair on “The Today Show” last week. I was never a “Titantic” fan — absolute crap script, for starters (this coming from the woman who watched “Must Love Dogs” and “Two Weeks Notice” back to back last night — but these two did have lovely chemistry.

While we aren’t exactly jumping in line to see the newly released “Nights in Rodanthe” — even the trailers for it give us a cavity — we bet there are plenty of people — like maybe our moms? — who are excited to see Diane Lane and Richard Gere reunite on screen for the first time since their 2002 flick, “Unfaithful.” We also feel pretty “eh” about Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio’s upcoming film “Revolutionary Road,” the first time they’ve teamed up since their epic, over-the-top blockbuster, “Titanic,” robbed us of three hours [...and 14 minutes! -- Editor] back in 1997. There are, however, some other cinematic couples we would love to see share some screen time again, if not some hot and steamy sex scenes, too (well, some of them, anyway). After the jump, the top ten movie couples we’re dying to see reunite on-screen:
