How do you make a low-budget Titanic sequel, knowing that the biggest expense in the first one was likely the elaborate water effects? I dunno, but my guess is that there’s a lot of water hoses involved, and a guy named Sven with a pencil mustache who runs around the set with his finger on the nozzle.
Below is the trailer for Titanic II, which comes from The Asylum, the production company behind Transmorphers, The Da Vinci Treasure and Snakes on a Train. I’m still a little confused as to how they manage to make a profit on these productions since video stores barely exist anymore, and obviously, the only way to hoodwink anyone into renting one of the combination of a deceptive DVD-box cover and some really fucking dumb and/or drunk college students trying to kill time on a Friday night.
Anyway, basically the premise is this: To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the original Titanic’s voyage, someone decides its a good idea to create another Titanic ship, which goes on the same exact voyage. “The Same Day. The Same Course. The Same Result.” Only now, you know, with toy ships.
