‘Titanic’ is one of the most celebrated romantic movies of all time. A romance that came to a tragic end and left millions of viewers in tears. Over the years, fans have debated over the death of the romantic, tragic hero Jack Dawson. And after all these years, James Cameron has come up with data to justify the heartbreaking death of Jack.
‘Titanic’ fans have always believed that poor Jack could have survived if Ross could have shoved over and made room for her lover on the floating door. And many also advocate the fact that the makeshift raft could also have had plenty of room for Jack. And all through these years, James Cameron has pointed out artistic reasons for his hero’s death. But this time, he is coming up with some scientific evidence.
James Cameron Proves That Jack Couldn’t Have Survived
After 25 years of debates over his hero Jack’s death, James Cameron is coming up with answers to satisfy our minds. “We have done a scientific study to put this whole thing to rest and drive a stake through its heart once and for all,” James Cameron said. he made this new announcement while promoting his latest film, ‘Avatar: The Way Of Water‘ in an interview with Post Media.
“We have since done a thorough forensic analysis with a hypothermia expert who reproduced the raft from the movie and we’re going to do a little special on it that comes out in February,” Cameron mentioned. This is in reference to the documentary coming up on National Geographic that scientifically proves Jack’s death. “We took two stunt people who were the same body mass as Kate and Leo and we put sensors all over them and inside them and we put them in ice water and we tested to see whether they could have survived through a variety of methods and the answer was, there was no way they both could have survived. Only one could survive,” James Cameron has put forward his scientific findings.
No Regrets About Jack’s Death
The tragic love stories have a very large fanbase. And when asked to Cameron if he has regrets about killing off Jack in ‘Titanic’, he answers with a big no. “No, he needed to die. It’s like Romeo and Juliet. It’s a movie about love and sacrifice and mortality. The love is measured by the sacrifice,” the Oscar-winning filmmaker explained.
Many including the cast of the movie have admitted to the fact that Jack could’ve lived. But James Cameron is sure about what he did. “Maybe I didn’t do it in a way that everyone agrees with, but Jack had to die. It’s that simple,” he said. “If I had to make the raft smaller, it would have been smaller,” the director added in the interview with Post Media.
