* VindicatedByCable: Seems to be heading in this direction. The film's production issues may have crippled it as a blockbuster, but sandwiched between b-movies and {{Mockbuster}}s as part of an afternoon movie marathon, it's a pleasant surprise.

* SpiritualSuccessor: It's the second time John [=McTiernan=] has adapted a version of Beowulf, the first being [[Film/{{Predator}} Predator]] a decade earlier.

** The film was ''heavily'' cut after poor reactions to test screenings and this shows up ''badly'' in the theatrical version - it's very clear entire sections of the film have been left on the cutting room floor in an attempt to make the film more appealing to a popular audience. In a pre ''Film/HarryPotter'' and ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' era, which proved audiences were perfectly happy to sit through long fantasy themed films, it's obvious the studio panicked at the poor test screening results and butchered the film. Ironically the cut down version received poor reviews and performed badly at the box office whereas who's to say how the originally envisaged version might have been received?

* CreatorKiller: A temporary example. Omar Sharif had such a bad experience on the set of the film and was so disappointed by the final cut that he briefly retired from acting.
