ちょうど昨年の映画アントマンで映画タイタニックが参照されていることを紹介しました。



▪ Scott Lang: Oh, man.
▪ Luis: What is it?
▪ Scott Lang: Well they weren’t kidding, this safe is serious.
▪ Luis: How serious we talkin’, Scotty?
▪ Scott Lang: It’s a Carbondale. It’s from 1910, made from the same steel as the Titanic.
▪ Luis: Wow. Can you crack it?
▪ Scott Lang: Well, here’s the thing. It doesn’t do so well in the cold. Remember what that iceberg did?
▪ Luis: Yeah, man, it killed DiCaprio.
▪ Dave: It killed everybody.
▪ Kurt: But not kill the old lady. She still throw the jewel into the oceans.


トーク番組でケートウィンスレットがタイタニックについて語っていたのですね。

ケイト・ウィンスレット、『タイタニック』でレオ様を見捨てたと認める!
2016年02月04日


1997年の映画『タイタニック』で悲劇の恋人を演じたケイト・ウィンスレットとレオナルド・ディカプリオ。ローズ役のケイトが、自分の役はレオナルド演じるジャックを見捨てたと認めたことが分かった。英Digital Spyが報じている。

People were very excited that you were sitting next to or near Leonardo DiCaprio at the show, even though in a way you let him freeze to death in the water, because the way I see it --"

No, I agree. You know, I think he could have actually fit on that bit of door.

There was plenty of room on the raft!

I know. People are always so excited to see Leo and myself in the same space, which you know at the end of the day that is so lovely, isn’t it It's been 20 years and people still get such a—it's really, you know, quite endearing. And we do laugh about it. We were giggling about last night. I was like, 'My God, can you actually believe it? That people just get so, they just get so overwhelmed by the Jack and Rose thing still.

多くのメディアGuardianやWashington Postなんかも記事にしていて20年経ってもなお話題になっています。タイタニックがコンテンツとして魅力があることを実感できます。いろいろ読み比べてみるのも楽しそうです。

Kate Winslet breaks silence on Titanic raft end: 'He could have actually fitted'
Star of third highest-grossing film of all time voices agreement with fans who felt Leonardo DiCaprio’s character died unnecessarily

Avatar and then Star Wars: The Force Awakens ousted James Cameron’s 1997 weepie from the top of the all-time highest-grossing film charts. Yet the power of the film Titanic to inspire debate remains undimmed, nearly 20 years after its premiere.
In the final scenes of the film, lovers Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet) are parted forever when it becomes apparent there is only room for the latter on a floating door after the shipwreck. Rose remains afloat, and goes on to enjoy a long and happy life; Jack shivers to his death in the icy Atlantic.
Yet from first screenings, fans expressed scepticism about just how much of the raft Jack would have required, and conspiracy theories arose suggesting Rose may have hogged the space maliciously.

Once and for All: Jack Could Totally Have Fit on Rose's Raft
Don’t blame her for his death, though. The constraints of storytelling sealed his fate.

MEGAN GARBER FEB 3, 2016

“I’ll never let go,” she whispered.
Except, uh: She did. She totally did.
Rose DeWitt Bukater, heroine of Titanic, badass proto-feminist, wearer of the Heart of the Ocean and owner of the beating heart Céline sang about, did, in the end, something you wouldn’t expect: She let the love of her life freeze to death in icy waters. Oh, and she did that while 1). wearing a life vest that she could have at least lent to Jack, and 2). floating safely and relatively comfortably upon a wooden door that, science has proven, totally had enough room for Jack to come aboard. As Ross Geller (a fellow who, say what you will about him, never would have let Rachel be swallowed alive into the murky Atlantic) would put it, decades later: “Let’s try scooching.”
