Is it '48 HRS.' or '48 Hrs.'? The title capitalization tool in the contribution rules (click!) accepts both. There are (many) profiles for both options in the database. So which is it?


Edit: I don't get the "does it matter?" comment. I asked a very simple question: how should I contribute this? Of course, the answer to *any* question posed in this "Contribution Discussion" forum can simply be: "just do whatever you like", but if that's the answer to everything, then we really don't need this forum. Does a common name really matter? Does a birth year really matter? I simply wasn't sure how to enter this title, so I thought I'd ask - I just wanted to see how others felt about this. That's all.

For what it's worth, the press release I got from Paramount says HRS. (and synopsis on the back cover for the first film has it as HRS.)

If the capitalization tool accepts both - does it matter? Does it have any practical impact?

"48 HRS." is a registered trade mark by Paramount Pictures Corporation: https://uspto.report/TM/74014418

Here is a specimen example from the trademark registration: https://uspto.report/TM/74014418/SPE20110622140520#1

Please note the title for the sequel is displayed as "Another 48 HRS."

Accordingly, I voted "48 HRS." (and likewise for the sequel, "Another 48 HRS.").
