FALMOUTH, Mass. - The discovery of two large pieces of Titanic's hull on the ocean's floor indicates that the fabled ocean liner sank more quickly than previously believed -- by about 15 minutes, experts revealed on the anniversary of the famous ship's collision with an iceberg.
In light of the revelation, 20th Century Fox has ordered director James Cameron to trim 15 minutes from his 1997 epic Titanic to maintain the film's historical accuracy.
An irate Cameron fumed that Fox's tampering with his artistic license is an unwelcome throwback to the days when studio bosses had final say over the director's end-product. "This is just another indication that 20th Century [Fox] is still living in the last century," Cameron said.
