Magazine coverage of "Titanic" : LUSENET : TitanicShack : One Thread

Following on the message about the forthcoming issue of Rolling Stone with Kate Winslet on the cover, it would be great to know about all the various magazines with major "Titanic" coverage!! I don't want to miss anything.

Here's what I'm aware of so far: COVER STORIES >> Entertainment Weekly, November 7, 1997 (Titanic) >> American Cinematographer, December 1997 (Titanic) >> Vanity Fair, January 1998 (Leonardo DiCaprio) >> People, January 26, 1998 (Leonardo DiCaprio) >> Wired, February 1998 (James Cameron) >> Entertainment Weekly, February 6, 1998 (Leonardo DiCaprio) >> Movieline, March 1998 (Kate Winslet) >> Rolling Stone, March 5, 1998 (Kate Winslet)

FEATURE ARTICLES >> Premiere, December 1997 ("Magnificent Obsession," 11pgs.) >> Time, December 8, 1997 ("Trying to Stay Afloat," 3 pgs., plus review and James Cameron true-false guide) >> Movieline, December/January 1998 ("Fantastic Voyage," 8pgs.) >> Entertainment Weekly, January 23, 1998 ("Deep Thoughts: Titanic is making waves...," 4pgs.)

I've also picked up issues of The Hollywood Reporter and Variety just to get the full page advertisements that mention Golden Globe nominations and winners. There are bound to be many of these ads for the "Titanic" nominations as we get closer to the voting deadline.

Can you add to this list? Anything I've overlooked? or anything new that you are aware of? Thanks.

Kathleen: Rest assured, I don't think you could have possibly missed ANYTHING. :) Thank you for the list, though, because I had missed quite a few of them.

I picked up three more magazines today that contain "Titanic" articles:

People, February 23, 2pg article "Women of the Titanic;"

Film Comment, Jan-Feb 1998, 3 pg article "Songe de Titanic" with sidebar "Titanic Movies Recycled;" and

Sight and Sound, February 1998, 4 pg article "Massive Attack" plus a separate movie review.

Don't forget to check out next week's issues of Variety and The Hollywood Reporter for advertisements touting the Oscar nominations!!

Kathleen and all, see Newsweek Feb. 23 '98. ("Our Titanic Love Affair", 6 pages!)

-- Bob Gregorio (, February 20, 1998.

The Newsweek article is very good, overall.

One tidbit from the article that really made me chuckle was the one about how in some French towns the total admissions for 'Titanic' excedes the local population. This means that many French movie goers are seeing the film over and over. This JUST DOES NOT HAPPEN, at least usually.

French intellectuals, as a rule, are very nationalistic about their culture, and they particularly seem to hate importations of American culture (with the weird exception of Jerry Lewis movies). I wonder how these intellectuals are taking all this Titanic mania from their own people. `(:-)

C'e Bon! Full speed ahead!
