14 times similar movies went head to head at the box office

14 October 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Deep Impact Vs Armageddon is not the only time similar movies have landed around the same time...

Usually, a competing project is poison for a studio. Especially in the era now where a blockbuster costs the national budget of a small country to get out into the world, you don't want to be up against a film with similar subject matter.

Yet this keeps happening, time and time again. Even now, there are two live action Jungle Book movies in various stages of production, for example. And let us not forget when K-9 and Turner And Hooch once did battle...

But how have the movie showdowns of old turned out? And are there any instances where everyone's a winner?

Er, not many as it happens...

The Haunting Vs The House On Haunted Hill

Let's start with two reasonably budgeted horror films, that both got wide releases. Jan De Bont »

Trio Up For "Tomb Raider" Film Reboot

17 September 2015 9:38 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A new report suggests that a trio of acclaimed female filmmakers have made the short list to take the helm of the "Tomb Raider" reboot which is being fast-tracked by Warner Bros., MGM, Gk Films and Eidos Interactive.

The Tracking Board says that Kathryn Bigelow ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Catherine Hardwicke ("Twilight") and Mimi Leder ("The Peacemaker") have made the short list as a replacement for the previously attached Tricia Brock.

Brock is a prolific TV director who has worked on numerous high profile cable shows including "The Walking Dead" and "Girls," however she's officially passed on the project.

Evan Daugherty penned the script which follows archeologist Lara Croft as she travels the globe seeking priceless artifacts. The franchise previously delivered two films with Angelina Jolie in the title role.

It's expected the new film will be like the acclaimed recent "Tomb Raider" game reboot, a much darker and more grounded »

Tomb Raider: three directors on the shortlist for reboot

16 September 2015 10:16 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kathryn Bigelow leads the shortlist of potential directors for the new Lara Croft movie.

The big screen reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise is still in development, with Gk Films, Warner Bros, MGM and Eidos Interactive all partnering on the project.

There had been reports that Tricia Brock was set to direct the new film, building on hew small screen work across the likes of Girls and The Walking Dead. But The Tracking Board now says she's passed on the film, and that a new shortlist of directors has been drawn up. Quite a shortlist, too.

Thus far, there are three names on it.

Kathyrn Bigelow is a firm favourite of ours, for her work across Strange Days, Point Break and The Hurt Locker. Then there's the director of the original Twilight film, Catherine Hardwicke. And finally, Mimi Leder, who helmed Deep Impact and The Peacemaker, is also on the list. »

Today in Movie History: Deep Impact Opens Before Armageddon in Asteroid Movie Race

8 May 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Hollywood ripping itself off is nothing new. In fact, at this very moment, we have two Jungle Book movies in production, and no less than four takes on Robin Hood in development at various studios. Of course it’s only natural for competition to set in when a “hot” idea gets traction, though some similarly plotted films are borne out of more duplicitous motives than others (see: Antz vs. A Bugs Life). But one of the most memorable “dueling movies” of the past couple decades came in 1998, which saw the release of two films in which an object from space is hurtling towards Earth, and only a team of astronauts can stop it. It’s fitting, then, that we look back on this event today, since Deep Impact was released in theaters exactly 17 years ago on May 7, 1998.

21 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 1990s

The 1990s: a time when Sleepwalkers, Burt Reynolds, No Escape, Chevy Chase and F/X/2 could top the Us box office...

By the 1990s, studios were waking up to movie marketing, and the era of the blockbuster. Tim Burton's Batman, released in summer 1989, had introduced the idea of a big opening weekend, and modern movies now target their promotional work to get just that. As such, it's harder and harder for smaller films to snare the top slot at the Us box office, even for one weekend.

In the 1990s, particularly the first half of the 1990s, that wasn't so much the case though. In fact, many films that have long since fallen from the public conscious topped the chart. And in this piece, I've tried to capture some of them.

Inevitably, you're going to have heard of some of them, and what a UK dweller sees as a »
