Where to watch Titanic

As demonstrated by the currently unfolding story about the missing OceanGate submarine, the allure of the Titanic remains strong well over a century after the ship sank beneath the waves in 1912. The ongoing fascination with the ship and its fate reached a crescendo in 1997 when director James Cameron unleashed Titanic, which at the time was the most expensive movie ever made. Stories about Titanic going wildly over budget filled the Hollywood trades of the era, and they hung over the film prior to its release. Critics and industry observers alike believed that the film would be a box-office disaster. Instead, Titanic became the highest-grossing movie of all time, until it lost that honor in 2010 when Cameron’s next movie, Avatar, surpassed it.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet were not unknowns when they were cast in the leading roles of Titanic, but this film catapulted them to even greater stardom thanks to their performances as star-crossed lovers Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater. Their doomed romance is at the heart of the movie. Cameron wisely surrounded DiCaprio and Winslet with a very impressive supporting cast, including Billy Zane, Kathy Bates, Frances Fisher, Bernard Hill, Jonathan Hyde, Danny Nucci, David Warner, and Bill Paxton. Titanic also weaves its original story in and out of the historical events to great effect.

Subsequent theatrical rereleases have demonstrated that viewers are far from done with this film. And now, we’re going to tell you if Titanic is streaming.

Streaming fans have a few different options to watch Titanic, depending upon which services you subscribe to. The most prominent streaming home for Titanic is Netflix. However, since this is a Paramount movie, it is also streaming on Paramount+. The third and final Titanic streaming option at the moment is Fubo TV. That’s a lesser-known service, but Fubo TV has its own benefits.

Is Titanic available digitally?

Titanic didn’t sweep at the Oscars, but it came close. It took home 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Costume Design, Best Original Dramatic Score, Best Original Song, and Best Visual Effects. As a cinematic achievement, it definitely withstands the test of time. However, the thing that keeps drawing Titanic‘s fans back over and over is the love story between Rose and Jack. Some of the dialogue between them is cringey, especially to modern audiences, but Titanic is an epic romance film first and foremost. And that’s why it endures.

Apple Studios hasn't been shy about loading up Apple TV+ with a large number of original films in order to fill out its cinematic library. So when an Apple movie is heading toward theaters with a wide release, it's a big deal. And it doesn't get much bigger than director Martin Scorsese dropping a new crime epic, Killers of the Flower Moon, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro in the leading roles. According to the new trailer's tagline, it's "based on a true American story," and it is. But it's not a happy story that makes the country look good. Instead, this is a dark tale of murder and greed.

In April 1912, the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg and sank to the bottom of the ocean, taking with it the lives of more than 1,500 passengers and crew. The Titanic's fate instantly became iconic thanks to James Cameron's 1997 movie, and the ship's legend has endured to the present, where another tragedy may be currently unfolding. On Sunday, June 18, OceanGate Expeditions' submersible vehicle went missing while on an underwater tour of the Titanic's wreckage. And as rescue efforts are underway, a CBS News report from November 2022 has gone viral because it features the same vessel that is now lost beneath the waves.

Watch these 5 movies before they leave Netflix in July

Each month, a plethora of TV shows and movies are added to and taken away from almost all streaming platforms. It can be hard to keep track of what's available and what's not. Time goes by quickly as the options continue to grow both on streaming services and in theaters, and that's never been more true than this June with Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse dazzling audiences with its groundbreaking animation.

For Netflix subscribers, these five movies will be leaving the popular streamer on July 1. From a 1990s comedy that produced one of pop culture's most enduring characters to an Oscar-winning thriller directed by one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, these films are worth a watch before they leave Netflix forever (or, at the very least, for a long period of time).
