Not all movies started out as you know them. Besides sometimes major plot and character changes many times they were known by a completely different name. Even after a movies releases sometimes the titles change depending on the country. A good example of this Airplane in USA was known as Flying High in Australia.
So here is my top ten movies that have had name changes.
10) The Rundown - known in some countries as Welcome to the Jungle
9) Blade Runner - of course this movie was going to be known by its book title originally Do Andriods Dream of Electric Sheep?
8) Pretty Woman - at one time called 3000 which was the cost of night with Julia Robert's character
7) American Pie - was known as East Great Falls High and even at one time was known as Teenage Sex Comedy That Can Be Made For Under $10 Million That Your Reader Will Love But the Executive Will Hate
6) The Boat That Rocked - changed in the USA to Pirate Radio
5) The Mighty Ducks - known as Champions in Australia
4) Star Wars: A New Hope - this movie went through several name changes including The Adventures of Luke Starkiller and The Star Wars: From the Adventures of Luke Starkiller
3) Captain America: The First Avenger - some eastern block nations dropped the Captain America bit and just called the movie The First Avenger
2) Airplane - known as Flying High in Australia
1) Cop Out - originally known as A Couple of Dicks among other names
