James Cameron is well aware of the “Titanic” fan theory that says Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet) could have survived the icy waters by climbing on the door with Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio).
The director of “Titanic” is looking into things in the National Geographic special “Titanic: 25 Years Later with James Cameron,” which airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET. He’s already found a big mistake: the lovers who were going to die didn’t hold on to a door.
Cameron told a panel of TV critics in January, “This fan question about Jack and Rose and a floating piece of debris that everyone calls a door will be answered by the new investigation we just did.”
Cameron stated, “This is not a door in the traditional sense.” It is a portion of the wood paneling in the first-class cabin.
Cameron gets one point because he will give the rest of the fan theory “a forensic investigation” in the documentary, which will come out on the same day as the anniversary re-release of “Titanic” in theatres on Feb. 14.

In the film “Titanic: 25 Years Later,” science will be used to demonstrate what might have happened to Jack and Rose in the aftermath of the sinking of the infamous ocean liner into the frigid waters of the North Atlantic. Jack, who was stuck to a piece of debris, died in the movie, but Rose lived.
James Cotter, an expert on hypothermia at the University of Otago, had the scene reenacted in a New Zealand pool with stunt doubles who looked like the movie’s lovers.
The temperature of the water was raised from 28 degrees to 56 degrees, and the doubles did the same thing in 56-degree water for twice as long.
According to the algorithms, that works out pretty well,” Cameron said of the “scientific approach” to figuring out if Jack would have really lived if he had pulled himself onto the floating platform next to Rose. READ–WHEN DOES THE SHARING OF NETFLIX PASSWORDS STOP? HOW MUCH IS IT GOING TO COST?
We merely questioned if doing this would make things better rather than attempting to prove or refute anything. According to Cameron, who created, wrote, and directed the 1998 Best Picture Oscar winner.
We came to some pretty firm conclusions after four tests,” he said, but he didn’t say what they were.
The “door” theory has been a popular fan theory for more than a decade. In 2012, “Mythbusters” even looked into it, and they came to the conclusion that both Jack and Rose could have fit on the floating debris. Cameron didn’t agree with the episode’s results. He declared, “Jack has to die because the screenplay says so. READ–WHEN DOES “UNLOCKED” MAKE ITS NETFLIX DEBUT? AND ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT KOREAN THRILLERS?
But in “Titanic: 25 Years Later,” he will look at the subject from a scientific point of view.
Cameron talked about the documentary at the TV panel after going to an event where his new movie, “Avatar: The Way of Water,” was recognized as one of the best According to the American Film Institute, the top films of 2022.
At the TCA event, Cameron also talked about “Secrets of the Bees” and “Secrets of the Penguins,” two new episodes of National Geographic’s Earth Day franchise.
