‘Titanic’ Re-released: James Cameron Made Just One Change [VIDEO]

Titanic is back in theaters, this time in 3-D!  You can check out where to see the film locally after the jump. James Cameron has mentioned he didn’t add any new scenes or new dialog as other directors have done when movies get another theater run.  That doesn’t mean the movie you’ll see in theaters is exactly the same, however, although you’d have to be an astrophysicist to notice.

It seems as though during a crucial scene in the original film, the stars in the sky are not accurately shown and that really irritated astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson.  His story is in the video.  His persistence paid off as director James Cameron has fixed the night sky so it is now 100% accurate, based on the information Dr. deGrasse Tyson.  Will you be seeing Titanic 3D?

Not many people could claim director James Cameron’s attention to detail. But with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, the man has met his match.

The director of “Avatar” apparently made only one change to his re-release of the three-hour-plus drama “Titanic”: the sky. And he did this following the incessant lobbying of one very annoying astrophysicist.

As recounted by Tyson, he noticed that in a pivotal scene with (SPOILER ALERT) Kate Winslet as Rose clinging to a piece of the boat under the night sky, the left half of the sky was a reflection of the right half. In other words, not the stars she would have seen that night, but a Hollywood fake-out.

Tyson mentioned the story at a panel discussion back in 2009, saying, “There she is looking up. There is only one sky she should have been looking at … and it was the wrong sky! Worse than that, it was not only the wrong sky; the left half of the sky was a mirror reflection of the right half of the sky! It was not only wrong, it was lazy! And I’m thinking, ‘This is wrong.'”
