‘Wrong stars’ force Titanic 3D scene to be reshot

Cameron, a notorious perfectionist, has admitted re-doing a scene in which character Rose lies on a piece of driftwood after leading expert Neil deGrasse Tyson sent him a “snarky” email.

The American astronomer accused the original film of having the wrong star field for the time and date, 4.20am on April 15, 1912, and claimed Cameron should have known better.

In response, Cameron challenged him to send the exact star map and has now included it in the relaunched 3D version of the blockbuster film.

It is the only major technical change to the drama, which will be out in British cinemas on Friday.

Cameron, who recently returned from his voyage to the Mariana Trench, said: “Neil deGrasse Tyson sent me quite a snarky email saying that, at that time of year, in that position in the Atlantic in 1912, when Rose is lying on the piece of driftwood and staring up at the stars, that is not the star field she would have seen.

“And with my reputation as a perfectionist, I should have known that and I should have put the right star field in.”
“So I said ‘All right, send me the right stars for that exact time and I’ll put it in the movie.’
