** A variation with Wallace Hartley, the bandleader. He had recently proposed to his fiancée, and although he was hesitant to leave her so soon, he signed on for entertaining on ''Titanic'' in the hope that it would provide potential contacts for future work.

* ''Film/GhostsOfTheAbyss'': (2003) A follow-up by James Cameron on the ''Titanic'', once again operating from the ''Keldysh'' (the third movie ''Titanic'' focused to use this ship after Cameron's film and ''Titanica''), which was his base of operations for ''Titanic 1997'' regarding dives (and was featured in the film) and had previously been the base of operations for ''Titanica'' 5 years earlier. This one also had a dive on TooSoon/SeptemberEleventh, which got woven into the film.

* ''Titanica'': (1992) An IMAX documentary by Stephen Low and originally narrated by Creator/LeonardNimoy, this was also the second ever IMAX exclusive film, done when the format was in complete infancy. This film features how the deep-dives to the ''Titanic'' work, and also features interviews from survivors Frank Goldsmith and Eva Hart. This is also the first of several films featuring the ''Titanic'' to also feature the research vessel ''Akademik Mstislav Keldysh'', which is one of the primary vessels dealing with the ''Titanic'' wreck and would be featured again in both of James Cameron's ''Titanic'' films: the 1997 smash, and Disney's ''Ghosts of the Abyss''.



* ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}'': (1997), Creator/JamesCameron's multi-billion blockbuster that launched Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio and Creator/KateWinslet into super stardom. Unlike other films, which generally use an existing ocean liner for the set, Cameron worked to literally build the ship itself and get every possible detail right, from the layout of the boat deck to the patterns on the fine china. Currently rivals ''A Night to Remember'' as the most accurate depiction of the sinking, as it includes the ship visibly breaking in two.

The second of at least 3 films about the ''Titanic'' to use the research/submersible vessel ''Akademik Mstislav Keldysh''; like ''Titanica'', deep dives are shown in detail at the very beginning of the movie, and the main character retells her story on board the ''Keldysh''.

** Arthur Rostron of the ''Carpathia'', acclaimed as a hero because he ''immediately'' ordered full steam ahead ([[TimTaylorTechnology and then some) the instant he got word about ''Titanic'', with only the sheer distance between the ships preventing him from saving hundreds more lives.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfTheTitanic'': ''Another'' cartoonified version, featuring another ripoff romance, singing mice, a giant octopus who saves the ship, [[CriticalResearchFailure and everyone lives]]. And it has a sequel, ''In Search of the Titanic''. You can't make this stuff up. All three movies earned scathing reviews from WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic.

** Adding to the awesome, one of the engineers put his hat over the gauge showing the steam pressure. If they couldn't see how dangerously high above maximum safe level the pressure was, ''they didn't have to worry about it.''

** Lastly, many shipbuilding experts and engineers say that the Titanic would have had so much momentum from her size and speed that the inertial forces caused by an instantaneous stop from a head-on collision could have ripped the engines of the Titanic completely free of their bases, causing them to probably tear completely through the hull. The resultant damage (several large holes open to the sea, each the size of a school bus) would have caused the Titanic to go down in seconds with probably all hands being lost. Anyone who escaped the boat would have either drowned or died of hypothermia in minutes.

* ''From Time to Time'', sequel to ''Literature/TimeAndAgain'', has the protagonist aboard the Titanic to try to [[spoiler:prevent the collision. Another time agent's actions cause it.]]
* In ''Literature/{{Millennium}}'' (written in 1983, before the wreck was found in 1985), co-protagonist Louise says the wreckage was never found because the whole ship was brought forward in time.

* ''Titanic'': "TheyJustDidntCare" would be a good way to describe this 1953 Clifton Webb and Creator/BarbaraStanwyck movie, which concerns itself more with a fictional custody battle between two catty first class passengers than the actual ship and the subsequent disaster.
