Parallels and Coincidences

Everybody seems to know in Hollywood and beyond that — sometimes copyright or not — someone else might easily bank on your same title and/or idea. This blog briefly examines several examples that, for lack of better wording, seemed all too familiar for projects of our own or that we participated with:

SUICIDE SQUAD (2016) VS. THE SUICIDE PARTY (2013)

POMPEII (2014) VS. THE DOG OF POMPEII (1999)

AMERICAN HUSTLE (2013) VS. URBAN HUSTLE (2013)

THE LAST KISS (2006) VS. THE LAST KISS (2000)

In conclusion, because there’s not much more to say, I leave you with a high school project called none other than “Coincidences” that examined the parallels between Lincoln & JFK. Was narrated live, but displays certain photographed elements including the Zapruder footage.
