Most people consider Hollywood to be the ultimate source for high quality movies. They aren’t wrong most of the time, but some of these movies are literally just copies of another. Quite a few movies are based on the exact same plot, and if you have watched one of them, you will feel that you are seeing the same movie when you go to see the other one.
Take a look at the top Hollywood movies which share the same plot.
1. No Strings Attached / Friends With Benefits
These two movies are literally so same that the only reason why you should one instead of the other depends on which cast you think is more attractive.
2. White House Down / Olympus Has Fallen
Both these movies are assassination thrillers, and are based on the exact same plot. The movies are definitely good, so make sure that you watch only one of them if you are interested in that genre.
3. Beauty and the Beast / Shrek
One might not notice their similarities instantly, but if you take a closer look, you will realise that the Shrek is just a more comical version of the former movie. The plot is almost same, although the movies appear completely different.
4. Prince Of Egypt / Thor
Both of these movies share the same plot – an evil brother trying to ruin the life of the elder brother.
5. Antz / A Bug’s Life
While “A Bug’s Life” can be considered to be more successful than the former movie, both of them were based on the same story.
6. Avatar/ Pocahontas
The widely successful Avatar movie shares its basic plot with Pocahontas. In both the movies, foreign invaders try to rule over the world while a love story emerges. However, Avatar was more popular due to brilliant 3D effects and animations included in the movie.
Both the movies have the same plot –a board game is included which is alive and forces the players to complete difficult tasks in a fantasy world.
8. Cars/ Doc Hollywood
Owen Wilson and Michael J. Fox literally had to play the same role in two different movies.
9. El Dorada/ Rio Bravo
Not only these two movies share the same plot, they also have the same star in John Wayne.
