11 Vastly Different Movies That Actually Have The Same Plot

Most Hollywood movies have the same plot because they can’t be bothered to think up an original idea – studio execs often only green light a project if it has “proven” box office success.

Via Business Insider:

Tom Cruise’s “Oblivion” came out this weekend, and movie critics repeatedly compared it to nearly every other Sci-Fi film including Disney and Pixar’s “Wall-E.”

Here’s what Variety had to say:

“It all looks and sounds a bit like a live-action remake of “Wall-E,” right down to the way the protagonist, spurred by natural curiosity and an unexpected love interest, finds himself on a dangerous unauthorized mission.”

That isn’t the first time two vastly different titles have been compared.

A recent thread on Reddit asked users to name completely unrelated films that share similar story lines.

We’ve compiled a few of the best.
