Am I the only person who hasn’t seen this movie yet, I mean it is the second highest grossing film of all time but I’m not one of the people who has seen it. It is good to see that after 15 years this film is still managing to pull in a large crowd and that it is still interesting people to this day.

Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster Titanic sailed beyond the $2 billion mark in lifetime ticket sales, thanks to a 3-D re-release of the film that was timed to the centennial of the ship’s sinking.
Only one other movie has topped $2 billion, and it’s also Cameron’s. His 2009 sci-fi smash Avatar earned $2.8 billion worldwide.
The Titanic reissue took in about $100 million this weekend — $11.6 million domestically and a whopping $88.2 million in 69 overseas markets. That included a $58 million debut in China and put the re-release total worldwide at $190.8 million.
