The rumor of a Sequel: Titanic 2

Titanic 2Cut the chitchats on a sequel to James Cameron’s blockbuster hit Titanic. In as much as I wanted one too and was nearly convinced that there is one—well guys—it’s not happening.

Movie records search shows that there is no such thing as a Titanic sequel. The said trailer that took everyone who saw it wondering whether there is a sequel is actually a mash of movies created by a guy named Robert Blankenheim. Using the pseudoname Derek Johnson, Robert used 23 movies, editing scenes and putting them all together, to create the trailer to the so called Sequel Titanic Two the Surface.

This version of the sequel’s plot focuses after the time Rose threw the “heart of the ocean” pendant to the sea.   The same expedition team went underwater to look for it again but found something else instead—a frozen Jack, Rose’s lover. Jack was defrosted and was taken to a medical facility where the government seemed to lock him up for further studies. He then escapes making him a wanted man by the authorities, but as he tries to run from them he also discovers that everything he ever knew was gone—especially Rose.

Records SearchSince the first release of this trailer, Titanic Two the Surface has already gained many visits from curious fans everywhere, especially after it was featured in magazines and other media forms. At present the video can be found at sites such as CNN Headline News, VH1 Best Week Ever Blog, Yahoo, and You Tube (where the creator himself posted the video using his pseudo). The said video in You Tube alone received 9,867,939 views since it was posted April 5. 2006. This also caused people to go instant people search on who is “Derek Johnson”.

Another copy was made by Robert, which is presently posted in You Tube, this time using his own name. He had conceived the idea of the said sequel five years ago but was unfortunate not to make it then due to lack of technical skills in using the software needed in making it like Adobe After Effects and Lightwave.

Rumors to the Sequel 2: there’s a Titanic 3 Trailer on Loose

Titanic: Two the SurfaceThe Titanic Two the Surface trailer by Robert Blankenheim aka Derek Johnson, the 25 year who got every fans of James Cameron’s Titanic wondering if there is a sequel, has gotten great reviews and—here it goes—a follow up. Yup! It’s a trailer for the so called Titanic 3, Titanic Never Let Go.

Background CheckThe said trailer was posted in You Tube, February 26, 2008, by xNightshadex who took the pseudo name Margaret Devaney, which public records search reveals is the name of an actual survivor from Titanic. The plot to the trailer follows Jack Dawson who has been on the run for 10 years. During this time the modern world has taken its toll on Jack and has thus lived a life of a fugitive. What made the said plot more interesting is the fact that records search can’t find his identity anywhere (although the trailer also shows how this happened). As he struggles with the life bestowed on him by the modern world, Jack also realizes that he can’t escape his past and that he has not completely let go of it, especially the memory of Rose.

In the making of the Titanic 3 trailer, the creator asked permission from Robert Blankheim to use clips from his Titanic 2 trailer as an introduction. It, honestly, worked pretty well especially with the new Jack image, gotten from different films. Below is the list where she got portions for her work.

  • Titanic (James Cameron, 1997)
  • Titanic Two the Surface (Derek Johnson, 2002)
  • The Departed (Martin Scorese, 2006)
  • Spider-Man 2 Trailer (for the preview screen only)

For those who have seen The Departed, background check shows how most scenes were taken from it. Some of the said clips were even mashed with that of Titanic’s which indicated Jack struggling with the past which seems to still haunt him.

For the background music, the said creator used the following:

  • Theme from the Spiderman 2 trailer
  • Electric Blue-?
  • Rough Hands- Alexisonfire
  • Titanic Soundtrack- Never an Absolution

The contrast of the beginning and the end of the video was very obvious yet instead of ruining the whole thing it fitted well with her plot. The theme from the Spiderman 2 trailer got a strong hold for an introduction as it fits perfectly to all the drama and chaos that Jack had been dealing with since he got thawed 10 years ago. It also introduced the new him—a criminal and a fugitive. The end part on the other hand, Never an Absolution by James Horner, was a softer tune to fit that give the sense wherein in the end the past is something he cannot escape from nor was able to let go.

To complete the video and for the idea of the plot to sink into the audience, here are her resources:
