With March Madness over, we’ve transitioned to April (or Titanic) madness. Titanic 3D opens today to kick it off. The reviews are in and they’re good/borderline great. The film’s stars have appropriately reminisced. Its scarlet has compared her role to a “bit of a shipwreck.” Unfortunately, I don’t think my grad-student expense account can handle those 3D tickets. Tell me what ya’ll think about it!
Elsewhere in Titanic-land things are heating up.
- Archaeologists are reporting fascinating finds from the wreck site. My favorite is a pipe, possibly from the liner’s bridge officer William Murdoch, who was harshly portrayed in Cameron’s Titanic.
- A new Titanic museum is opening in Southampton, England next week.
- MTV is actively promoting its Titanic Sounds festival set for April 13th in Belfast, Ireland. Its touted as a “pop festival” with acts including Pixie Lott, Katy B, Olly Murs, Sean Paul and Rizzle Kicks performing. (Why Belfast? Because the Titanic was built there).
- The winning bid for the titanic Titanic auction will be unveiled two days before the Belfast shindig.
There’s more… lots more. I’ll post all I come across in the days to come. (If you find something interesting — please pass it along!) What ever will we do after April 15th?
