Usually, titles are either put in bold face or italics. I prefer italics.

There is another point . . .

You say that "KHH and Once Upon a Time" is a movie (just one movie).
However then you say "both movies will be in a box-set".

I assume that "KHH" and "Once Upon a Time" are two movies, which will come out in a box-set.

I agree with you DragOnspeaker...it is 2 movies, and I would also use italics as Foundit suggested...I would even edit how it's written.

KHH and Once Upon a Time are two movies in one box set.

Yeah - I think, in print, italics look good.

I grew up "way back in the last century" and so my typewriter had a choice of single or double quotation marks - no bold, no italics. One could underline, but it was a slow job (typing each letter twice).

So I automatically still use inverted commas for titles.

Thanks all. I will be more careful next time and use italics for the title name.

Drag0nspeaker: Yes, it is two movies.
