Titanic is Britain’s favorite period drama – Film News | Film-News.co.uk

‘Titanic’ has been voted Britain’s favorite period drama.

The 1997 blockbuster directed by James Cameron and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet came out on top after being chosen by a quarter of Britons in a survey of 2,000 moviegoers.

Russell Crowe’s ‘Gladiator’ finished second and was followed by ‘The King’s Speech’ and Oscar-winning ‘Downton Abbey’ in the Showcase Cinemas poll.

Family favorites such as “Braveheart” and “Ben-Hur” make the list with “Dunkirk”, “12 Years A Slave”, “Pride and Prejudice” and “1917” also making the top ten.

The company’s Mark Barlow said, “The big screen has provided us with so much incredible drama.”

“Titanic” was helmed by James Cameron, who recently revealed he hopes to make six-hour films for streaming services such as Netflix and enjoys the “chaos” that has been brought to Hollywood in recent years.

The 67-year-old filmmaker said: “I’m not afraid. I like change. I’m a child of the 60s. I like when things are chaotic. I think what we can see is is an expanded form of cinema. I want to make a film that lasts six hours and two and a half hours at the same time. The same film.

“You can stream it for six hours, or you can go and have a more condensed, rollercoaster, immersive version of that experience in a movie theater. Same movie. Just, one is the novel and one is the movie. Why not? use these platforms in a way that has never been done before.”
