Sets Of Films With Almost Indistinguishable Premises

 Isn't it astounding the way that there are such countless new films delivered consistently? It resembles an endless smorgasbord of realistic enjoyments! Notwithstanding, because of a periodic deficiency of unique thoughts, we once in a while get a confounding twofold delivery, which seems as though one of the films was wanted to be a directly to-DVD knock-off. Some moviemakers pursue the directions just to see which blockbuster's plot would be the simplest to duplicate. These "fauxbusters" are normally intended to befuddle your folks into purchasing a modest DVD, believing it's that film everybody's been discussing. However, different times, comparable plots and thoughts are a finished mishap.

It's basically impossible to let know if it's simply an imitation of a more famous film or the scholars just had a similar odd thought. Yet, one way or the other, these almost indistinguishable motion pictures do exist.

1. Deep Impact – Armageddon

Release in the same year almost back-to-back, these movie twins are confusing the viewers to this day. In both flicks, there’s this crew of astronauts sent into space on a mission to blow up a deadly meteor and save Earth. One of them is an action film; the other is more of a suspenseful sci-fi thriller. I’ll let you decide which one is which.

2. Mirror Mirror – Snow White and the Huntsman

In 2012, two movies based on the classic fairytale about Snow White were released. In one of them, the main character is shown to be a strong, independent woman who needs no Huntsman’s help, and the other one – oh, wait, they’re the same. While the stories have their minor differences, these two flicks are essentially the same fruit.

3. It Takes Two – The Parent Trap

If you’re a 90s kid, you probably remember the classic 1998 comedy involving cute twin sisters and their shenanigans aimed at rebuilding their family. But do you also remember that three years prior to the Olsen twins’ career skyrocketing, there was a movie called It Takes Two? It’s almost the same exact plot as the Parent Trap!

4. Antz – A Bug’s Life

When we see similar movies about twins or meteors, that’s one thing. They’re pretty common plots when you really think about it, which makes this pair an absolute mind-bender. Two CGI animated movies about bugs released in the same year? Someone has definitely been spilling the beans to the competition. And thus, even today, the war between Pixar and DreamWorks continues.

5. Dante’s Peak – Volcano

Disaster movies aren’t rare, and there are only so many plots you can use, like, for example, twisters, earthquakes, climate change, tsunamis, and, of course, volcano eruptions. Both Volcano and Dante’s Peak were released in 1997, and neither of them stands out, making it hard for the viewers to remember which part is from which movie.

6. Divergent – The Hunger Games

Movies based on young adult books have been quite popular since the first Hunger Games part came out in 2012. But two years later, we got Divergent – a movie that nobody asked for with lore so confusing not even the fans can tell you what it’s really about. But, it so happens that both have a badass female MC and take place in a dystopian future full of jerks!

7. After Earth – Oblivion

In 2013, we were treated to not one but two post-apocalyptic movies: Oblivion with Tom Cruise and After Earth, starring Will Smith. Both films take place in a distant future where Earth is all but dead after somehow surviving the alien invasion. On paper, they do seem very alike, but these two movies could not be any more different in terms of quality.

8. Willy’s Wonderland – Five Nights at Freddy’s

What do these two horror movies have in common besides cursed animatronics, a decrepit restaurant, and an unfortunate protagonist who has to watch the place at night? Okay, clearly, Nickolas Cage going ham on possessed machines is a bit of an overkill for a casual viewer, but it’s still better than the unremarkable worldwide hit that is Five Nights at Freddy’s. One of those titles is vastly superior, and you all know it!
