Amazing CGI Footage Shows How the Titanic Crash Really Happened

On April 15th, it will be exactly 100 years since the sinking of the “unsinkable” RMS Titanic ocean liner. To mark the occasion, you can go to your local IMAX and watch James Cameron’s 3D re-release of his 1997 smash hit ‘Titanic, which opens today. Or, if you want to pay tribute while avoiding Celine Dion, you can check out this brand new CGI rendering of the notorious iceberg-induced disaster.

Alas, James Cameron is directing this sinking, too. Just call him “king of the Titanic.” (No, don’t call him that.) It’s all part of a National Geographic special, featuring Cameron, which will air on Sunday.

What this new examination really drives home is that the Titanic sunk. It goes down hard and fast and then smacks the ocean floor. It’s actually somewhat terrifying to watch, even though it’s clearly a simulation.

We know there has been 100 years of advances in ship safety since the disaster, but it’s still going to be a while before we can think about taking a cruise.
