"Titanic" and the Making of James Cameron
The dimensions of this book reflect the blockbusting nature of the movie: 100 hours of interviews with Cameron over 3 years; exclusive interviews with over 50 of his closest creative associates and with all top execs involved in this and Camerons previous movies. Plus full cooperation from Cameron including access to scrip notes and dive diaries. The Author Paula Parisi, for 10 years reporter, editor of the' Hollwood Reporter ' began tracking Cameron's Titanic while he was still in pre production in 1995 and was given open access to the Rosarito beach set in Mexico. Making this film was the equivalent of going up and down Everest on a rollercoaster' said Parisi. I've positioned this book as an adventure story. The movie was released in the US on December 19th 1997. In 7 weeks it clocked up USD 300 million at the box office in the US alone and it is still taking as much in it's7th week as it's 2nd an unheard of phenomenon at the Box Office. By mid february it had reached USD 600m world wide. To top it all the film has received 14 Academy award nominations including Best Picture and Best Director.
