Well of course its been renamed planet X because...uh...well, there's the whole, er...thing...you see in Japan X means...um...At least the movie is getting distributed.
Another indie sci-fi The Men Who Fell was released on dvd as Biohazard X in Japan. From this we can obviously deduce that in japanese X is a direct translation of F.U.B.A.R.! i.e.,:Planet F.U.B.A.R. and Biohazard F.U.B.A.R.http://www.quietearth.us/articles/2007/12/01/The-Men-Who-Fell-released-as-Biohazard-X-in-Japan-in-December
Hmmm...Planet X is an excellent bicycle and component manufacturer here in good old blighty.Not sure if any copyright infringements are being stepped on there.http://www.planet-x-warehouse.co.uk/
There's also a band called Planet X. I'll just have to make sure all tags lead to our site.It is a totally mad cover, I wonder what the film's like?
Ha - I found the trailer for the Japanese release. It's like the whole movie in a minute, some would say it's better that way.I've got a copy coming over, I just have to find a machine to play it on.http://www.interfilm.co.jp/Detail/08/IP08-0486/IP08-0486.html
