Watch James Cameron's new CGI model of the Titanic sinking

As part of an upcoming documentary commemorating the one-hundredth anniversary of the Titanic disaster, National Geographic has released this updated animation of the sea-liner's collapse by noted detail stickler James Cameron. Using forensic data from the wreckage, Cameron and his team have amended the ship's 1912 foundering. The sinking was not adjusted for the Titanic 3D rerelease, unlike certain historical events.

Looks like the main differences is that the back section never got so vertical in this version as it did in the movie/original recreations. Originally they thought it bobbed around for a couple of minutes almost vertical like a cork. That would be something they simply couldn't re-film, too much of the final action (Rose and Jack hanging onto the back railing and all) just can't be redone.
