Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down

Remakes and sequels are bad enough, but you know Hollywood has run out of stories when you see two eerily similar films hit theaters. However, when two films share a plot, only one can prevail.

Our case of déjà view starts with this year's duo of films about terrorists taking over the White House. While the more serious Olympus fared decently at the box office, the Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum starrer White House Down was the summer's first certifiable flop.
