Titanic Netflix: “Titanic,” one of the few new movies accessible on Netflix on July 1, is distressing some viewers in light of the previous week’s disaster that happened onboard the OceanGate Titan submarine.
James Cameron’s “Titanic” is one of the few new movies that will be available. The Titan submarine sank in the Atlantic Ocean when it was on its way to the remains of the Titanic, taking with it the lives of five of its passengers.
People who use social media have voiced their disapproval of Netflix’s decision to make James Cameron’s “Titanic” available on the streaming service so soon after the tragedy that involved the submersible.
One reader expressed their opinion that “Netflix is overstepping the lines of decency on this timing.” Many people believe that the streamer is trying to capitalize on the deaths that occurred on the Titanic by adding “Titanic” to its playlist.
Another user of Twitter said that it is “beyond distasteful” to take advantage of the current situation to attract views. At the site of the Titanic, a terrible disaster claimed many people’s lives.
Even while Netflix’s choice to air “Titanic” on July 1 may not seem like the best idea, it is implausible that the streaming service intends to make money from the disaster. Since the licensing arrangements for the streaming service are worked out well in advance, the timing of the release of “Titanic” on Netflix is a coincidence, according to people familiar with the arrangement.
The streaming service license deals are worked out. On June 22, it was announced to the public that members of the Titan had passed away. If “Titanic” will be available on Netflix on July 1, then the streaming service must have already worked out the licensing specifics far before that date (i.e., much before the Titan submarine disappeared).
OceanGate’s Titan submarine can take up to five guests to the wreckage of the Titanic, which is located at a depth of 4,000 meters. The trip might take up to ten hours and cost around $250,000 for each participant.
The British businessman Hamish Harding, the British Pakistani businessman Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman, who was 19 years old, the former French Navy diver Paul-Henry Nargeolet, and OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush were among the fatalities of the submersible accident.
James Cameron, a long-time member of the diving community who has personally made several trips to the Titanic wreckage, made several appearances in the media when the news broke about the deaths that occurred on the Titanic. Cameron is known for his role in the film Titanic.
Cameron says, “The community was very worried about this sub.” Even significant professionals in deep submergence engineering have sent letters to the company indicating that their technology is too experimental to carry people and must be authorized before it can be used. These letters were addressed to the company.
Cameron said, “I’m struck by the similarities of the actual Titanic catastrophe,” in which “the captain of the ship was constantly warned of ice ahead of his ship, and yet he went at full speed into an ice field on a moonless night, and as a result, many people perished.”
From our point of view, the fact that the warnings were disregarded led to a tragic outcome. It just blows my mind that all of these divers are congregating in the same spot at the same time to do their underwater exploration. It’s odd.
