Beats me how they keep it straight--Star Wars vs. War of the Worlds.

Here in Japan, Star Wars opens in 5 more days. Since I have already seen the movie, I'm probably not as excited as I should be. However its given me some great opportunities to watch the original movies as one of the TV channels here has been running Episodes 4, 5, and 6 on TV. The posters, of course, are up on all the trains.

Now also, last week, War of the Worlds opened under its Japanese title: 'Space War':

Star Wars Episode III is this in Japanese:

The War of the Worlds title translates literally as "space war". The Star Wars title literally translates as "Star Wars Episode 3 sith's (shisu) revenge" ( the bottom line means road show all over the country....).

Clear as mud, eh what?

I'm glad they can keep it straight..............
