Sometimes the title of a film doesn't really seem to match what occurs in the film. I'm speaking of films like Naked Lunch, Quantum of Solace or My Own Private Idaho... Which of these famous movie titles with new plots would you most like to see?

Jen,

For your consideration:

A Star Is Born (1954)
Segment on Nova (1974) (TV Series) which documents a recent discovery by astronomers of interstellar gases collapsing into a new born star.

A Star Is Born (1954)
Astrologers in ancient China were surprised when they observed a new star, Supernova SN 1054 around 1054 CE (AKA 1054 BC). Alarmed they warned the current emperor that his reign would soon be threatened by unexpected invaders. The emperor reacted poorly and palace intrigue ran rampant.

Dan, do you mean astrologers or astronomers?

Jess,

I meant astrologers.

In 1054 BC (AKA 1054 CE), there was no real distinction between astrologers and astronomers. Since these star gazers used the night time sky to predict the future, they would most properly be called astrologers.
