Australian mining magnate (apparently, a thing) Clive Palmer has unveiled the blueprints of his replica of the doomed ship that killed Leonardo DiCaprio.
What could go wrong? It's set to sail the Atlantic by 2016. Will there be costumes, you ask? Sure! Passengers, dress in your finest! Go downstairs and dance with the poor people if you'd like!
As you can probably tell, the ship has garnered mixed reaction on Twitter. Here are some of our favorites:
"They are building the Titanic II. Hopefully it works out better than the Death Star II." — @DepressedDarth
"I was so pissed when I saw Titanic II trending, but then I realized it's a remake of the boat and not the movie and then I felt better." — @nickcaroselli
"China begins work on Titanic II cruise ship. James Cameron immediately invests in cryogenic freezing so he can film the sequel in 100 years." — @bradelliott23
"I'm creeped out by the idea of Titanic II, but mainly because I hear there won’t be any TV’s in the staterooms." — @ItsMeAdriane
"Some Australian billionaire is building the Titanic II. The doors will be bigger and extra floaty, because really Rose, Leo could have fit." — @kelkulus
"Thanks to global warming, the Titanic II has nothing to worry about." — @christianjmeyer
"Not sure about Titanic II but pretty sure Kate Winslet would be naked in it." — @BlakieB0Y
"My new goal in life is to win tickets to the Titanic II in a bet." — @Himynameisjd
"So Titanic II. Insert Irish still made to sleep in the bottom of the ship joke here." — @JenniferKeegin
"I've got this weird, sinking feeling about the Titanic II being built." — @ghero46
