Planet X

I got this through off Mark Stirton director of The Planet and One Day Removals It's the DVD Box for the Japanese release of The Planet for some bizarre reason it's been renamed Planet X.

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.

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.

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.
