It's official: They're making Titanic II. No, thankfully, not the movie.
Plans to build an 883ft-long "full-scale re-creation" of the famous ocean liner that sunk in 1912 after striking an iceberg in the North Atlantic were announced at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum this week.
The brainchild of Australian mining magnate/Titanic fanboy Clive Palmer, the 55,800-ton luxury liner (to be built by Chinese firm CSC Jinling Shipyard) will hold 2,435 passengers and 900 crew, and feature Turkish baths, a casino, gym, swimming pool, and a theater -- where they'll be showing the movie Titanic on a continuous loop. Just kidding! That'd be so wrong.
In all seriousness though, the theater will be the ship's primary venue for entertainment, as Palmer's vision of voyaging back in time includes no Wi-Fi or TVs on board at all.
