James Cameron would very very like it if the dialogue surrounding Jack’s dying in “Titanic” didn’t go on. After years of followers debating whether or not or not Jack and Rose each might have match on that floating door within the ocean, the director commissioned a research to show as soon as and for all that Jack needed to die. And not only for cinematic causes.

While on tour to advertise his newest movie, “Avatar: The Way of Water,” Cameron instructed the Toronto Sun that he performed a scientific research to settle the controversy as soon as and for all. The experiment will air as a particular on the National Geographic Channel in February, however the Oscar winner had no drawback spoiling the research’s findings.

“We have executed a scientific research to place this complete factor to relaxation and drive a stake by its coronary heart as soon as and for all,” Cameron mentioned. “We have since executed a radical forensic evaluation with a hypothermia skilled who reproduced the raft from the film, and we will do some particular on it that comes out in February.”

He continued, “We took two stunt individuals who had been the identical physique mass of Kate [Winslet] and Leo [DiCaprio] and we put sensors throughout them and inside them and we put them in ice water and we examined to see whether or not they might have survived by quite a lot of strategies and the reply was, there was no means they each might have survived. Only one might survive.”

Cameron is not the one one who’s standing by Jack’s icy dying. Winslet, who stars within the Avatar sequel, not too long ago appeared on the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast the place she too put one other nail within the Jack-didn’t-have-to-die idea’s coffin.

“Look, all I can let you know is I do have a good understanding of water and the way it behaves,” Winslet mentioned. “If you set two adults on a stand-up paddleboard, it turns into instantly, extraordinarily unstable. That is for certain.”

Winslet added that whereas Jack seemingly might have match on the door, it might have doomed each him and Rose. “I’ve to be trustworthy: I really do not consider that we’d have survived if we had each gotten on that door,” she revealed. “I feel he would have match, however it might have tipped, and it might not have been a sustainable concept. So you heard it right here for the primary time. Yes, he might have match on that door, however it might not have stayed afloat. It would not.”

Both Winslet and Cameron’s assertions contradict the findings of a 2012 “Mythbusters” episode which posited that poor Jack might have survived — however provided that he and Rose had found out how you can use Rose’s lifejacket as a buoy to assist the door maintain their mixed weight.
