The Titanic’s iconic handprint still exists, but a Terminator is leching at it
One of the most watched, most iconic films happens to the tragic tale of Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet) as they meet aboard the ill-fated luxury ship, Titanic. Directed by James Cameron, the film shared the name of the ship that sank on 15 April 1912. The Titanic inspired several documentaries, but Cameron’s film was perhaps one of the most talked about movies of its time. Twenty years later, Jack and Rose’s story still lives on, on the windshield of the car they were… you know… doing it.
Cameron has a collection of props from the films that he’s made and the old car where the infamous love scene was shot still exists, along with the handprint. The veteran director shared a picture of the car, urging fans to ‘look closely’ at it. The handprint exists alright, but some determined fans looked a little too close. A sizeable number of Cameron’s followers noted a Terminator located close to the ride, keeping a close eye on the vehicle. Quite a few commenters speculated that the bot might’ve been fascinated by the handprint because… reasons. *winks*
Speaking about T-800s, the upcoming robo-film titled Terminator: Dark Fate is slated to release this November. Going back to the handprint, it is generally accepted that the hand in question belonged to Kate Winslet. However, it really is a print of James Cameron’s hand. Reports said that the print was preserved over the years thanks to a spray that stopped it from being wiped off.
