The Movie Formerly Known as Starship Dave
07.09.08 by REELZ
Opening this Friday is the comedy Meet Dave, about a miniature race of aliens who travel to Earth in a spaceship built to resemble a full-size human being (played by funnyman Eddie Murphy). You may recall the film was once known by a different -- and perhaps more apt -- title: Starship Dave. What prompted the change?
"The studio," Meet Dave director Brian Robbins revealed to us yesterday at the film's premiere. "Starship Dave is a better title, I agree. Everybody has their theories, but Fox is really good at what they do, marketing-wise, so it's hard to argue with them."
We'll find out if the change pays off this weekend, when Meet Dave takes on Hellboy II and Journey to the Center of the Earth at the Multi-plex.
