James Cameron’s Titanic was such a hit back in 1997 that some theaters had to be given additional reels, because their original ones were ruined from replaying the movie over and over again. However, it appears that the Chinese remain the biggest fans of the story since they’ve taken up the incredible task of building a full replica of the ill-fated liner.
Seven Star Energy Investment Group will start the building process of the replica this February and the finish is due to 2014. However, the Titanic II won’t be able to sail unlike the famous ocean liner, so history won’t be repeating itself. The Titanic II is planned to be a tourist attraction, part of the Daying County’s theme park, which will be built by 2016. The replica ship will be offering tourists the amazing chance to have an experience of a lifetime as they will be put in situations in which they will have to “fight” for their lives as the Titanic II would be fake sinking.
According to official reports, the original liner cost $7.5 million. The Chinese replica will cost Seven Star $165.
