December 19 - Titanic hits the theaters

The 2nd highest grossing movie of all time (thank you Avatar) hit the theaters on this day, 13 years ago. The film that grossed over 1.8 billion dollars was a huge phenomenon and would go on to win every award in its site. The movie picked up a record 11 Academy Awards and even managed to win 3 Grammy Awards for the Titanic Soundtrack.

The film starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet as Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater. While DiCaprio had done a few movies prior to Titanic, this movie was instrumental in launching his career. He has since starred in several blockbuster movies including "Gangs of New York", "Catch Me If You Can", and "Inception" to name a few.

The movie was produced and directed by James Cameron, who is planning a theatrical re-release of Titanic in 2012 that will be viewable in 3D.
