James Cameron Changes Titanic’s Stars — Astronomers Rejoice!

When James Cameron released Titanic in 3D, he kept the original film intact — except for one very important thing. He changed the stars. As pointed out by astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson, Cameron’s stars in the original film were inaccurate, so Cameron felt compelled to correct it. When Cameron prepared the film, he said, “All right, you son of a bitch, send me the right stars for the exact time, 4:20 a.m. on April 15, 1912, and I’ll put it in the movie.” This certainly proves that James Cameron is nothing if not a perfectionist. Perhaps he’ll also take the time to reduce the size of that damn piece of wood so Jack’s death seems more justified and Rose doesn’t look like she’s hogging it.
