Two nearly identical films being made by different studios, within two years of each other, is more common than it sounds. Hollywood is actually filled with examples of what the industry has dubbed “twin films.”

Sometimes similar scripts bounce around Hollywood studios and production companies, resulting in analogous films. Sometimes there’s a race to produce a film based on a major current event or celebrity death. And sometimes, twin films are just the result of a weird coincidence.

In the case of Mowgli, the film was in development before Disney’s The Jungle Book was even announced. But the Disney film was able to get made first, making Mowgli look like the duplicate. Having to essentially re-tell a story told just two years ago by Disney, however tonally different, will make it very difficult for Serkis’ film to perform as well at the box office as Favreau’s did.

But the film that comes first isn’t necessarily the more successful one. Danny Boyle’s 2015 film about Apple co-founder Steve Jobs (played by Michael Fassbender, from a script by Aaron Sorkin), for instance, was far better received than the 2013 Jobs biopic that starred Ashton Kutcher.

Here are some other notable examples of twin films throughout Hollywood history:

For more instances of “twin films,” TV Tropes has compiled a nearly exhaustive list. The most recent case might be the 2017 film All the Money in the World and the 2018 FX series Trust, which are both about oil tycoon J. Paul Getty and the kidnapping of his grandson, John Paul Getty III.
