Would you choose a movie that bore the title “The Woman in the Cage?
Or, “The Men Who Hate Women“?
No, not likely?
Yet, It IS likely that you have seen at least one of these movies. They are both Scandinavian movies, (successful at the box office), and had their titles changed for releases in English speaking parts of the world.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo had the original title in Swedish: “The Men Who Hate Women”
Another recent Scandinavian movie, “The Keeper of Lost Causes,” was originally called: “The Woman in the Cage!”
Why do you think it was changed? Is it integral for the movie’s success?
Would you investigate further by watching the trailer, or would the violent title put you off completely?
What do you think?
