In a new trailer that's been making the rounds on Twitter, Hamilton's Leslie Odom Jr. plays Nick, a man who's deeply in love with his wife, Janine (Cynthia Erivo). Everything is going great until Janine's ex-husband, Orlando Bloom, who still loves Janine and somehow has the power to travel through time, comes back into the picture and derails their wedded bliss.

It's a classic story of boy meets girl, boy loves girl, time-traveling Legolas shows up and ruins everything. But what's most notable about the film is the title, which is so transcendently terrible that it feels like a spoiler merely to write it down. So before we do, please watch all two minutes and 11 seconds of the trailer for the big reveal (it's worth it, we promise).

Okay. Have you watched it? Have you processed? Are you ready for spoiler time? Then let's talk: Why is this movie called Needle in a Timestack? What kind of conversations went into that decision? Were there truly no better options?

In the spirit of trying to understand this choice, here are nine other titles that would probably have been better than Needle in a Timestack. (Needle! In! A! Timestack!)

Out of Time
Lost in Time
Time-Jumping for Love
My Wife or Your Wife? Only Time Will Tell
Telling Time: A Marriage Story
The Man Who Went Back in Time and Then His Wife Disappeared
The Time Traveler's Wife (No, Not That One)
I Love You but I've Chosen Time Travel
Hamil-TIME
