I have often found it curious how movies sometimes seem to appear at the same time with great similarities in content. Here some examples just from the top of my head:
Antz - A Bug's Life
The Abyss - Leviathan - Deep Star Six
Finding Nemo - Shark Tale
Now again I found myself wondering if these two are another case of this. Judge for yourselves.
Season of the Witch
I am actually excited about both (despite my unexplainable dislike of Nicolas Cage) as the theme is something that I am into.
As far as I understand it Black Death is a British production while Season of the Witch is American. Notice even the similarities in the opening scenes of both trailers - a wide shot of the landscape. I wonder which movie came first?
