I can't hold her much longer, Murph. Port bow is heeling. She's taking on way too much water.
In the opening scene when the wire slices through the attendees of the Captain's Ball, everyone but the captain is cut in half. There was no way that the wire could cut the captain's head exclusively, and not cut Katie in half.
The opening logos are tinted brown, and the typical Warner Bros. logo is instead an intentionally chintzy 60s style logo. All this ties into the infamous cruise ship opening.
The film was released in Germany in both its uncut form (rated "Not under 18") and in an edited version ("Not under 16"), which misses many gory shots (i.e. from the wire scene in the beginning, the squashed diver or the "hooked up" singer). For commercial reasons most cinemas showed the cut version.
