Forget everything you thought you knew... The year is 1915. It's been one year since the tragic events of Titanic. Join Rose (Kate Winslet) as she struggles to adjust to a life without Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio).
But when a mysterious stranger washes up on shore, Rose soon discovers she can't escape the ghosts of her past.
This is a fan trailer (sometimes called a concept trailer). It's a highly edited movie trailer for a fictional film. By using professional voice artists, filmed footage, special effects and creative editing, an entirely original storyline is created.

If you want to hear me talk about the creative process (and how I developed the storyline/plot) then check out my video journal episode of Making The Trailer.
I originally started this trailer way back in 2016. I knew I wanted to make a Titanic 2 trailer that parodied the 90's classic "I Know What You Did Last Summer". In that film, four teenagers mistakenly think they accidentally killed a man. A year later, he turns up alive and wreaks revenge on them.
I wanted to parody that with Jack turning up a year later (after he was assumed dead) and getting his revenge on Rose.
I really struggled to find footage to push this storyline so I ended up putting it to the side. Instead, I focused on a different Titanic plot (which ended up being my trailer for Titanic 2: Jacks Back).
I always wanted to go back and finish this video because I knew it had a strong concept and I really loved the absurdity of it all.
In this trailer I relied heavily on a new technique where I dub actors voices with a professional voice artist. It made it so much easier to push the plot (rather than relying on existing footage) and I'm very happy with the way this trailer turned out.
This trailer is comprised of 15 different movies and uses 4 different voice artists.
