Hollywood Patterns

I remember that we got two volcano movies at the same time: Dante's Peak (1997) and Volcano (1997)

We got to Meteroid impact movies at the same time: Deep Impact (1998) and Armagedon (1998)

We got two Mars movies at the same time: Mission to Mars (2000), Red Planet (2000).

We got two recent alien invasion movies at the same time: Skyline (2010) and Battle Field L.A. (2011).

And I could have carried on with other subjects, Zombies, Vampires, etc...

Now, we do not have two, but three "White House doing down" movies: G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013), Olympus Has Fallen (2013) and White House Down (2013). Ok, make it two and half, because the White House doesn't actually get to be destroyed in G.I. Joe, only occupied by foreign forces.

I wonder whether they do it on purpose....
