'Guardians of the Galaxy's' Chinese Title Is Pretty Amazing

Guardians of the Galaxy is poised to open this weekend in China, adding even more money to its staggering $654 million gross. But as director James Gunn revealed on Twitter, the Marvel blockbuster arrives in that market with a decidedly different name.

Entertainment Weekly points out that it actually may be the Taiwanese title, and that some experts contend it more closely translates to either Interstellar Special Ability Team or Interstellar Different Commandos. Whatever the case, it's pretty awesome.


Guardians of the Galaxy arrives Dec. 9 on Blu-ray and DVD in the United States.
