Bradley Cooper  is playing a sexy celebrity chef in the restaurant-world-set drama in the trailer for Burnt , but before giving you a look at it, the movie's title went through a classic Hollywood makeover: a name change. It's a common practice — lots of well-known films have had their titles changed before they landed on the right one — and, of course, we couldn't imagine these movies any other way now. Find out what Burnt and these films could have been known as.
The To Do List
Aubrey Plaza's sexual education comedy The To Do List was originally titled The Handjob, but the racier-sounding movie allegedly couldn't get filming locations, because it sounded like they were shooting a porn film.
The Seth Rogen /Zac Efron  comedy was previously known as Townies, which was appropriate for the college-town setting.
The award season juggernaut was originally only known as the Untitled David O. Russell Project, then was called American Bullsh*t, before settling on the no-censorship-necessary American Hustle.
No Strings Attached
The 2012 Ashton Kutcher /Natalie Portman  romantic comedy was originally titled Friends With Benefits, which obviously had to be changed because the Justin Timberlake /Mila Kunis  film with the same title (and same premise) was coming out the same year.
The Julia Roberts  classic was almost called $3,000, a reference to how much Vivian is initially paid for her time.
John Krasinski  and Drew Barrymore 's whale-saving 2012 movie was first titled the very on-the-nose Everybody Loves Whales.
The third Adam Sandler /Drew Barrymore  romantic comedy was first called Blended, then changed to The Familymoon, before going back to its original title.
50 First Dates
Another Drew Barrymore /Adam Sandler  flick, 50 First Dates, was retitled from the very similar 50 First Kisses.
How Do You Know
The Paul Rudd  and Reese Witherspoon  comedy went back and forth from How Do You Know to Everything You've Got and back again.
This Is the End
This 2013 comedy went through a few changes before settling on its final title. Based on the short film Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse, it was first known as The Apocalypse, then became The End of the World, after which Simon Pegg requested from Seth Rogen  that it be changed to avoid sounding too similar to Pegg's film The World's End, which also came out in the Summer of 2013.
The 1999 comedy could have been known as East Great Falls High, the name of the school that Jim and the gang attend.
The Will Smith  matchmaker drama was originally known as The Last First Kiss, but market testing determined that it didn't appeal to men as much.
That Awkward Moment
This dating comedy was originally titled Are We Officially Dating?, which is pretty similar in tone to the new title, which refers to that awkward moment when the person you're dating would like to know if you're officially dating.
This romantic indie was originally titled The F Word — the F word referring to "friends," which is what Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan's characters are.
The Keira Knightley  musical drama was previously titled Can a Song Save Your Life?
Edge of Tomorrow
The Tom Cruise  action vehicle was originally titled All You Need Is Kill, the name of the graphic novel it's based on.
The crime thriller, which stars Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini, was originally known as Animal Rescue, taking its name from the Dennis Lehane short story it was based on.
The Bill Murray  comedy was originally known as the longer St. Vincent De Van Nuys before shortening its title.
This 2012 movie starring Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf  was once titled the same as the book as it was based on: The Wettest County in the World.
Bradley Cooper 's movie about a bad-boy chef, Burnt , was originally known by the name of Cooper's character: Adam Jones. Now it's known by a name that is unsettlingly close to Seth Meyers's best late-night bit .
