Infographic: The United States of Movie Titles


The new movie “The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia,” which premieres in theaters and on VOD Friday, is notable for two things:

1. It's the directorial debut of Omahan Tom Elkins. Elkins will be at Aksarben Cinema for screenings at midnight tonight, 6 p.m. Friday and 6 p.m. Saturday to introduce the movie and take audience questions.

The only one that comes close (with the aid of a little creative cheating) is “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark(ansas).”
