Hilarious Japanese Translations Of Hollywood Movie Titles

For some reason movie titles don’t survive the trip across the ocean unscathed, and when international audiences go see a movie they may not be totally sure what they’re going to see because the title has been so badly butchered.

A website called Rocketnews24 has taken it upon themselves to reveal this title butchery by translating Japanese versions of Hollywood movie titles back into English, showing us how easy it is for Being John Malovich to become Malcovich’s Hole, Despicable Me de-evolves into Mysterious Thief Gru’s Moon Theft, and a third Final Destination becomes a ride on a Final Deadcoaster.
