A Box Office Smash Hit

When Titanic came out it was an instant success in the 90s.  The movie Titanic was the highest-grossing movie in box office history grossing more than 1.8 billion dollars worldwide.   According to Titanic held onto this record until 2009 when Avatar grossed more than 2 billion dollars worldwide.


The movie follows the love story of Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet), but unfortunately, the love story ends in tragedy when the Titanic strikes an iceberg.  While the love story from the movie was fictional, the story of the Titanic sinking is not. You can read all about the real-life Titanic tragedy, here.   But for today, we're just talking about James Cameron's box office smash hit, Titanic.
