8 GREAT TITANIC GENRE MOMENTS

In 1912 when the Titanic set sail, it was called the “Ship of Dreams”. Since that time it has sparked the imagination of millions. Countless TV Shows, Movies, and even Cartoons about the Titanic have found their way into our collective pop culture. Films such as James Cameron’s Titanic (1997) have wrapped fictional characters around factual events. This has all been in attempt to illustrate what indeed happened from April 10th, 1912 (the day it set sail) to April 15th, 1912. Other films like Roy Ward Baker’s A Night to Remember (1958) are based on actual accounts of survivors. Several even served as technical consultants on his film. Outside of these two great films, there are several instances when the Titanic has found its way into the genre of sci-fi and fantasy. It is a perfect tragic moment in time to travel back to and stop. Films and TV shows have even paid homage to the passengers on the vessel in one way or another. Here are “8 Great Titanic Genre Moments”.
