Twin Films: Movies With Basically The Same Plot Released In The Same Year
The Equalizer | John Wick — 2014
The Equalizer Box Office: $101,530,738
John Wick Box Office: $43,037,835
The films have completely different types of leading men, different cinematography styles, and a bit of a different tone. But at their heart, these films have literally identical plots. Both movies focus on men trying to leave their dark, espionage pasts behind the but tragic events draw them back into the life. They’re both quiet men who turn out to be total badasses. The Equalizer made a bit more money (it’s that Denzel Washington magic!) but John Wick has gained a huge following and both films have spawned franchises!
