Titanic 2

Updated on August 20, 2010

Titanic 2- Tempting fate again

 Now most folk would agree that there is just no way that they would get on a ship like the Titanic for a second time around to chance fate on the same route as the original Titanic took on its maiden voyage.

You must be completely nuts to agree to it and I think that why this new release will garner quite a following as its always going to be a topic of much debate and interest around the world by people from all walks of life.

 

 

The Facts of that fateful voyage in 1912

The Titanic was built in an Irish shipyard to the design and specifications of ship designer Mr J.Bruce Ismay (later to become head of White Star Lines) and ship builder Mr Thomas Andrews , both of the Harland and Wolff Shipbuilding Company, who had just taken on the mammoth task of promising the public an affordable mode of transport to America from Europe whilst offering all the creature comforts given to first class passengers.

This meant that 2nd and 3rd class passengers were able to be seated in dining halls for meals whereas all previous shipping companies had never before offered this luxury.

On its maiden voyage to New York, the Titanic which was supposedly indestructable and unsinkable, was subjected to its fate. The design would allow several compartments in the ship to flood whilst still maintaining bouyancy.

But on the fateful night of 14 April 1912, the ship hit the iceberg that sealed its fate and a tear was made down a large length of the starboard(right) side of the forward compartments. The ship was not designed to have damage to multiple compartments at once and thus the ship started to list and eventually sank taking with it a large number of passengers.

Enter Titanic 2

So how do you suppose this movie will start. Well first of all, we need to create the perfect plot.

The plot starts with a bohemoth of a ship being built to sail on the 100th anniversary of that maiden voyage as carried out by its predecessor on the same day 100 years earlier. So on the 12 April 2012, the Titanic 2 sets sail for its maiden voyage.

The Titanic 2 would not be true to its name if it did not travel the same course as the original Titanic and so it does. Southhampton to New York, albeit a little quicker than the first I'm sure.

So what will it take to sink the Titanic 2 in the same vicinity as the first Titanic, a huge iceberg of course. So where do we find a huge iceberg in the twentieth century amidst all this climate change and global warming. The perfect scenario takes this into account and allows for all types of things.

Even though this movie will be a made for TV movie, it will also be available on DVD and will be released on 24th August 2010 in the United States and has already been released in some parts of the world including Europe on the 9th August and Australia on the 7th..

You can order as copy online if your are a Titanic finatic and wish to view it before others do.

It promises to have loads of action and I dont want to spoil the plot for you, but jsut know that there is some great sea footage to expect. The movie is the creation of Asylum Pictures and has some newish actors and actresses that you may recognise form other tv dramas.

      I left a comment but it vanished into thin air - anyhow, probably not the last of the Titanic movies as there have been several but it is good to remember the victims of such an ill-fated journey - and the fact that thanks to that disaster, ships were then required to carry enough lifeboats for all passengers.
