James Cameron is Settling That Titanic Raft Debate Once and For All


shutterstock_517605580It’s now time, once and for all, to settle one of the great debates of our time: Was there room for both Jack and Rose on that raft at the end of Titanic? In the almost 20 years since the movie came out, it’s been a hot topic and is discussed and memed pretty much constantly:

Director James Cameron spoke with The Daily Beast, mostly to talk about his new National Geographic documentary Atlantis Rising, which tracks the search for the lost city of Atlantis. Cameron loves deep-sea exploration- he told The Daily Beast that what drew him to Titanic was not only the script and the love story, but also doing a real investigation of the tragedy. And, um, speaking of Titanic, we need that raft debate settled. Cameron said, “We’re gonna go there? Look, it’s very, very simple: you read page 147 of the script and it says, “Jack gets off the board and gives his place to her so that she can survive.” It’s that simple.”

For the whole interview, head over to The Daily Beast.
