April 15, 2012 marked the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. It was celebrated by the 3D special re-release of the 1997 James Cameron blockbuster Titanic, which earned the film an additional $343 million worldwide, pushing Titanic's worldwide total to an incredible $2.18 billion! As my own personal commemoration to the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, I'm going to share 10 facts about the movie Titanic you didn't know!
1. Matthew McConaughey to Play Jack
I will never trust Hollywood studios to make the right choices when it comes to making a blockbuster hit film. The reason for this being that they originally wanted Matthew McConaughey to play Jack Dawson instead of Leonardo DiCaprio. Titanic without Leonardo DiCaprio is like peanut butter without jelly, it just wouldn't have been as good!
