Twin Films: Movies With Basically The Same Plot Released In The Same Year
Olympus Has Fallen | White House Down — 2013
Olympus Has Fallen Box Office: $98,925,640
White House Down Box Office: $73,103,784
When you watch the trailers for these two films it’s almost impossible to tell them apart. Disgraced white men save the President amid explosions and kickass action scenes. The only difference is the actors they put in each film — Channing Tatum in White House Down and Gerard Butler in Olympus Has Fallen. It stands to question how political climate could have influenced two movies in one year to have a “save the President for mortal danger” plot! Both films performed fairly well, but Olympus Has Fallen clearly got the edge — and a sequel!
