When James Cameron launched his passion project Titanic in 1997, Hollywood braced for disaster - it was already legendary for it's wildly expensive production, and they thought they had a classic tale of hubris on their hands, believing it would not just bomb, but that it would be the end of Cameron's career. Instead it was a bona-fide phenomenon, its box office became bigger than any film in history, holding the title until Cameron's own Avatar in 2009. Thron himself saw it over 25 times in the theater, crying at every single go. But Chris has resisted the romantic pull of this legendary melodrama until now - until tonight! Did it sink or swim?!?
