TOKYO —
Regular RocketNews readers will know doubt have seen articles documenting some of Japan’s weirder translations of Western movie titles (“Malkovich’s Hole,” anyone?), or perhaps caught our collection of English movie posters remade using their Japanese titles. But today’s list of 10 adapted movie titles was nominated by none other than Japanese movie watchers themselves, who felt that the new names their country had given to these feature films were actually pretty cool.
