I think Dangerous Days is an awesome title for that film.

Surely, 'Hello Atlantis' would be more appropriate...

'Blue Harvest' sounds like a farmers' special interest film.

About half of these aren't the working title of the film at all - just the decoy name under which the film was shipped to cinemas.

Where's The Avengers? That had a great production name, 'Group Hug'.

Which we made pretty clear in the introductory paragraph. And technically most were a production title used during shooting, not just for delivery.

Darnit, that was on the list but we forgot to do it. Amar's going to add that in.

Not sure I get the Bruce Springsteen reference for Harry Potter. Would be an excellent title for a movie though!

Would be interesting if they actually made a film of Red Sun. Superman is pretty redundant and old fashioned and plain except in that comic

Love the way Cap appears to be looking at his crotch for "Frostbite"

Universal wanted to rename Terry Gilliam's "Brazil" from its working title of "Brazil" as the loony head of the studio, Sid, thought folks would be dischuffed by the lack of South American scenery. So the studio boffins suggested, amongst others, very catchy, "If Osmosis, Who Are You?", glorious "Nude Descending Bathroom Scale" and the Sid James-esque "What A Future!"
