Japanese translations of Hollywood movie titles

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Website RocketNews24 creates posters for Hollywood movies with their Japanese names.
As we’ve seen before, with many international releases the names of films can sometimes be vastly different from the original.

Just for fun, we took 19 movies from other countries that have had their names changed for Japanese audiences, translated them back to English and put them in their original posters.
