Circ le rouge ‘le rouge’ in French meaning ‘the red’ Circ in Catalan meaning ‘circus’ This all amounts to “The Red Circus” Naming the trailer and the film this way attracts a lot of young children as they are in school and learning some language which is mostly French and they will then feel excited and involved and will want to watch the film (if allowed by their guardian). The word ‘circ’ that is not in french will intrigue them into wanting to know what it means, this will then start a chain reaction of the child pestering the parents into taking them to the cinemas to watch the film. For older audiences it will just be a matter of like for the trailer or interest.
