With the exception of translations to other languages, are there any movies whose name changed after released in theaters? Bonus if there's one that changed WHILE in theaters.
The new Ghostbusters did it. I would guess there are others. Ghostbusters became Ghostbusters Answer the Call
There have been several movies that have changed title in their release in United States and and the UK , which share the same language. This might be stretching the definition of the question a little I know.
This sometimes happens when a film title might be confused with something else that is popular in the other country. For example the film ' Neighbors'was called 'Bad Neighbours' in the UK as the Australian soap 'Neighbours' is a very popular TV series here. It can also happen when a title is considered to obscure for instance the UK title 'Ice Cold In Alex' a popular 1950s war movie was called 'Desert Attack' in the US.
Here's a few:
- Star Wars became Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
- Ghostbusters became Ghostbusters Answer the Call
- Edge of Tomorrow became Live Die Repeat for the home video release (though technically it still used Edge of Tomorrow)
