Battleship

It's usually the disgruntled little guy who sues a big studio stealing his idea, but in this case, it was Universal who wanted to know who sunk its Battleship. The studio sued indie production company the Asylum for putting out a straight-to-DVD "mockbuster" called American Battleship just four days after the big budget one hit theaters, which starred Rihanna. The studio blames the copycat for stealing its business. Battleship sunk at the box office.
