The Cold Blue


I'm thinking that this is a rare typo for the series, and the movie in episode 3 being shown was The Big Blue, directed by Luc Besson. Any thoughts?

Definitely, or else maybe a similarly named/pictured movie to avoid copyright stuff.
If you have a second, please answer some of my questions about the series in the other thread.

I think it would either have been for copyright reasons, or perhaps in Japan it was released as The Cold Blue.

If you go to the "Connections/Referenced In" section in the trivia for The Big Blue it indicates that it is referenced in Eden of the East.

Saki describes it as "the French film with the dolphin" which made me think of The Big Blue. My guess is that they used a different title on the screen to avoid copyright issues or maybe to make people like us curious.

Odd, I wonder why it does not create a reciprocal entry here.

It's skirting a copyright issue.

Something similar occurs at the very start of episode 11 (approx 1:22 here: http://www.dubbedepisodes.ws/eden-of-the-east-episode-11-english-dub) as the posters outside the cinema are for...
* Witness, starring Sammy Stuart
* Butchery Lucy & The Sunset Kids, starring Pearl Norman, Roberto Redhot and Catherine Rose
...with posters that look remarkably similar to those of Rear Window and Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid respectively.
