Pale Blue Dot was an infinitely better title

This guy's done a brilliant job with Fargo, something that had no right to be as great as it's been in all three of its iterations. And this looks great. So - great!

From Rolling Stone:
The film is loosely based on the 2007 tabloid saga of Lisa Nowak, who famously drove from Houston to Orlando, wearing an adult diaper, to kidnap her ex-boyfriend’s new lover.
Okay, I'm 1000% in

Someone on reddit claimed to have seen it already. Says it's very good and follows the Nowak story closely. But alas, no diapers.

Pale Blue Dot was also the working title of Jason Reitman's Men, Women, & Children, when it was filming here in Austin, and also didn't stick with it.

I find it difficult not to prefer Lucy in the Sky just because it means the movie will surely pull in more box office based on a more eye-catching title to the general filmgoing population. I'm sure the actress who just had a movie called Vox Lux bomb will appreciate it

Or maybe casual moviegoers will go see it during opening weekend thinking it's a Beatles musical, then realize it's an artsy drama/sci-fi movie, and the ensuing negative word-of-mouth will kill it instantly!

Maybe studios are iffy about the word "pale" in the title. Two of the definitions of the word are "deficient in color or intensity of color" and "not bright or brilliant". They practically read like negative movie reviews on their own.

What was Sagan thinking not naming this after a Beatles song?

If only we lived in a world where naming a film after that Pavement album would sell tickets

I mean, Portman's problem in this is when she's grounded...
