Twin Films: Movies With The Same Plot Released In The Same Year

By  | 

Godspell | Jesus Christ Superstar — 1973

Columbia Pictures/Universal Pictures

Godspell Box Office: $1.2 million
Jesus Christ Superstar Box Office: $24.5 million

It turns out 1973 was the year to bring the theater, and Jesus, to the big screen! Both of these movies are about the words and teachings of Jesus Christ. But unlike that other popular Jesus Christ film, The Passion, these two movies depict the religious figure in a lighter way and are full of great music! If you are any kind of musical theater geek, then both of these films hold a special place in your heart. This is a case of twin films being a good thing because it meant more secular sing-songy goodness for the kids who turned into the Broadway stars of today to fawn over!
