    The new name sounds bad, not liking it really.

    I guess they felt the audience needed a less subtle title. :lmao:

    I wasn't wild about the original name but this new one sounds awful.

    They should've gone with The Great Escape From Shawshank.

    I am not normally one to complain about titles but frankly The Escape Plan sucks. Can a title even get more generic and dull than that? The Tomb wasn't great but it at least made you wonder what the Scary Inescapable Prison was like. The Escape Plan just makes me wonder what else the theater will be showing.

    The Tomb implies death. Eternity. Once you're in there you're f***ed.

    The Escape Plan sounds like a Toy Story short.

    Tomb was a badass title, this one is generic as heck. Still doesn't change my expectations for the movie.

    Since both The Last Stand and Bullet to the Head tanked, I guess the studio is worried there will be a joke on the name as in both star's careers are in a "tomb" or something.

    The Escape Plan sounds like a title for a damned romantic comedy.

    Then again, that's what this movie might turn out to be. It is about two guys is prison...

    I like the Escape Plan better. Tomb makes me think of adventure movies like an Indian Jones/Tomb Raider/Mummy movies.
    The Sly is an architect and he made the plan of the prison he must now escape from.
    The title might not be deep but I think it's clever.

    The Escape Plan sounds like the sequel to that babysitting movie Vin Diesel did a few years back.... I'm sold!

    The Tomb was a better title. Hopefully they will change it back.

    Wasn't the original screenplay called EXIT PLAN? Sounds much better and in your face than ESCAPE PLAN.

    They should call it Plan of Escape. Then set up a crossover with the planet apes movie so it could be called Plan of Escape from the Planet of the Apes.

    LOL

    They should have called it Exit Only.

    Arnie's character could even have that tattooed on his butt.
