Awesome Movies and Their Copycats (14 pics)

Posted in Funny » Fail   22 Oct 2011   / 15415 views

Amazingly, some of the more popular movies in the past 20 years have been immediately copied within months of their release. See which big time flicks have very similar rivals.

 

Turner & Hooch / K-9 (1989)

The classic "buddy cop" cliche gets turned on it's head... or tail!

Babe / Gordy (1995)

Look at the cute talking piglet!

Twister / Night Of The Twisters (1996)

Tornadoes make life on the farm less than ideal.

Antz / A Bug's Life (1998)

Armageddon / Deep Impact (1998)

In order to save the Earth from a devastating collision with an asteroid (or comet, choose your poison) a team lands on the orbiting hunk of rock and detonates explosives to throw it off course.

Dante's Peak / Volcano (1998)

Volcanos cause lots of frantic exchanges of dialog followed by action sequences.

The Truman Show (1998) / EDtv (1999)

A man's life is filmed 24/7. This used to be out of the ordinary.

Red Planet / Mission To Mars (2000)

Shark Tale / Finding Nemo (2003)

Infamous / Capote (2005)

A biopic about Truman Capote.

Madagascar (2005) / The Wild (2006)

A lion, giraffe, and some other exotic animals escape from the zoo and have an adventure in New York City.

├ćon Flux Flux (2005) / Ultraviolet (2006)

A sexy, acrobatic, female protagonist must save the world from a deadly virus in a dystopian future.

The Day The Earth Stood Still / The Day The Earth Stopped (2008)

Alien invaders and their giant robot threaten to destroy the Earth. One was a remake of a classic piece of 1940s science fiction, the other was a shameless knock-off that went straight to DVD.

Despicable Me / Megamind (2010)

An animated kid's move about a villain who's actually not such a bad guy after all.

Most of the time, the copy is not of a released movie, but of a movie everyone has heard about being made. When a movie is picked up, it gets press and another studio will often order up a copy based entirely on a one line description.
