I just bought the novelization of the 4 Alien movies in a beautiful fancy-box. This is a hungarian edition of the books and released as a freshly translated print of them in 2015.
Nice covers. How do the titles translate from Hungarian to English? I'm seeing the word 'halal' on each of them.
Halál means death in english. When the hungarian translators choose a title for a movie they reflect something from the plot or a significant feature. So the hungarian titles in english:
- ALIEN: 8th passenger is the death (because there are seven passengers on the Nostromo)
- Aliens: The name of the planet is death (because there are many aliens on LV-426 this time and there were a kaboom in the end :-D)
- Alien 3: Final solution is death (because Ripley choose death in the end)
- Alien: Resurrection: The death resurrect (because they resurrect the aliens)
So the 'halál' is indicative of the alien in the titles.
But there are exceptions. For example, Prometheus is Prometheus here too.
Thanks. Those are awesome titles. :)
Igen, magyar vagyok.
