Serious Colon Disease Sweeps Hollywood

Remember when movies just had one title? These days, it seems as if no summer blockbuster could be complete without a title of ridiculous length, with a colon in the middle. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. It’s not as if the colon is a new thing in film titles, but with the new popularity of franchise films, studios are embracing the chance to squeeze in one more repetition of the franchise title.
