外文标题：Chinese firm to build replica of Titanic
A Chinese firm plans to spend $165 million building a full-scale replica of the Titanic — the doomed luxury liner which sank more than a century ago — as the main attraction for a theme park, reports said Tuesday.
The original and supposedly unsinkable luxury passenger liner struck an iceberg and went down in the North Atlantic in 1912, killing more than 1,500 people.
The famous ship is a subject of immense fascination for many in China, particularly after the 1997 release of James Cameron’s film on the liner’s doomed voyage starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Little known Chinese energy company Seven Star Energy Investment said the replica, which is expected to cost 1 billion yuan ($165 million), will be the main attraction for a planned theme park located Sichuan, a landlocked province famous for its spicy food.
The replica will be docked permanently on a river, the South China Morning Post reported.
I trust that the Chinese can recreate every flaw impeccably.
Let’s build a replica of the iceberg and float it toward China.
It’s a metaphor for the Chinese economy.
$165 million seems rather cheap. The real Titanic supposedly had the furnishings and decor of the finest hotels in the world.
The first one was a tragedy… the next one was just made in China.
If china has so much money, why is the US giving them billions in aid?
United States needs to build a smog amusement park.
Are they going to run it into a replica of the iceberg and send it to the bottom too?
there is a saying in the west
if titanic ship was made in china, such disaster could been averted completely.
For only 165 million this is a good way for China to bring in more western tourism. As long as it doesn’t sink I think this is a pretty good idea.
The Chinese have money to “burn” or at least they have our money to burn.
I wonder how many Military bases they have around the world, how many wars they are currently fighting, and how many of their soldiers died fighting in other countries this past year.
It’s probably going to sink before it’s build. Made in China.
The Chinese can barely make a car that meets US safety standards… Thank goodness this is just a replica… Stay out!
You won’t be able to see it through the smog, but I’m sure it will be beautiful
I see that China has run out of ideas on how to spend all of the money they get from the U.S.
all the trips you went to wal mart has helped pay fo rthe project

I would be willing to book a cruise on the new Titanic as long as they kept the poor people out of sight on the lower decks like they did in the old days.
Why are people fascinated with this tragedy? Perhaps build a full scale replica of the twin towers.
Had the Titanic been built by the China originally it would have never sunk being made of cheap plastic and foam board.
What is not made in China nowadays?
No worries, Titanic II will follow the original if it’s being made in China…
