We're not sure about you, but when we hear the word 'Titanic', what immediately comes to mind is an image Jack and Rose, falling innocently in love on one of the world's most renowned voyage ships...

But one can't forget that this real-life tragedy from the 20th century still holds a great importance today. Throughout the years, many remains of the ship have been found underwater where the ship sank on April 15 1912, just southeast of Newfoundland. 

What many don't know is that new and rarely seen underwater footage from the wreck has just been released (a whole century after its initial sinking!)

This rarely-seen footage "marks the first time humans set eyes on the ill-fated ship since 1912 and includes many other iconic scenes,” as the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) added. 

The new 80-minute long video captures interior angles of the ship, as well as marine life living around it. The shots in the clip were filmed 3 kilometres below the ocean's surface, giving viewers real up close and personal shots!

"More than a century after the loss of Titanic, the human stories embodied in the great ship continue to resonate," said James Cameron, 1997's Titanic director, in an interview.
