El Pasoans Remember Titanic
EL PASO — Their hearts went on... but fans of the 1997 James Cameron film "Titanic" will never let go of the story of two "White Star Line"-crossed lovers... Jack and Rose.
Some El Pasoans got onboard with observing the centennial of the luxury liner's sinking by going to the theatre to watch the 3D version of the Oscar-winning movie.
"I loved when she keeps holding on to him and when the rescue team finally comes for them she tries to wake him up and she finds our he's dead. That was really heartbreaking. It just really caught my attention. Made me cry," said Ruby Rodriguez.
"I just like history. The suspense. Made me want to keep watching it so when I had to use the bathroom I just had to hold it...like this is the good part," said Carlos Flores.
The re-release... "synced" with the 100-year anniversary... has enabled "Titanic" to sail past the $2 billion mark in lifetime ticket sales.
The film took in about $100 million just this weekend.
