Posted in PICTURES       22 Oct 2011       17844       9

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.

Æon 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.
