WC: Now that it’s graduated from just sharing cat pictures, the internet lives off movie facts. It’s just a shame so many of them are completely made up.
Did you know the run-time of Titanic is the same as the time it took for the ship itself to sink? That little factoid’s recently done the rounds, despite being categorically false – the ship went down in two hours, forty minutes, while James Cameron’s Oscar sweeping blockbuster goes on for another half an hour. A quick fact check would have revealed that, but instead people run around shouting it just so they can make jokes about how long the movie is.
