James Cameron now concedes that Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jack “might have survived” in Titanic. It’s the age-old question we’ve been asking since the blockbuster movie was released 25 years ago: Why didn’t Kate Winslet’s Rose pull Jack up onto the float with her? There was definitely enough room, right?
It’s a topic that is tackled in a new one-hour National Geographic special “Titanic: 25 Years Later with James Cameron.” The special is set to air this weekend. Cameron took a couple of stunt actors on a series of tests to see whether or not Rose and Jack could have survived if she had pulled him out of the water. We’ll explain below.
The special airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on National Geographic and streams the next day on Hulu.
