|| ''The Last Days Of Pompeii'' (1913) || ''Jone, or the Last Days of Pompeii'' (1913) || Both were epic films based on ''Creator/EdwardBulwerLytton'''s novel, both from Turin, Italy. || Apparently there had almost even been a third version by director Caserini (sometimes credited as a co-director on one of them). || Hard to say which pre-war Italian silent film is the better. Probably the Rodolfi-produced version. But even there, the official Kino DVD got confused and credited the wrong producer. ||
|| ''Film/TheConqueror'' (1956) || ''Film/AlexanderTheGreat'' (1956) || Both were battle epics released in 1956, their wide releases both falling exactly upon March 28 ironically enough, that center around one of history's most famous conquerors and military leaders. (Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great) || || Well, the winner of this match depends on what fate one considers to be a worse one. An eternity of infamy or virtual oblivion as it is for each film respectively; ''The Conqueror'' earned a lot of derision for casting Western ultrastar Creator/JohnWayne as Khan, and its failure signaled the end of RKO Radio Picture's relevance in Hollywood for quite a while (this is after Samuel Goldwyn and Creator/WaltDisney had already bolted from the studio, with Creator/{{Disney}} setting up Buena Vista and then Walt Disney Pictures/Touchstone as an alternative distributor). Both films did very poorly with critics, however with the general audience whilst ''The Conqueror'' has a generally negative reaction ''Alexander'' has a more divided response. Counter-balancing that though is the fact that ''The Conqueror'' did better at the box office. ||


|| ''Film/FelliniSatyricon'' (1969) || ''Satyricon'' (1969) || Two different adaptations of Roman novel ''Literature/TheSatyricon'' released in the same year || A rival producer rushed out his own adaptation of ''Satyricon'' after hearing about the Fellini project. The Fellini film was then retitled ''Fellini Satyricon'' to avoid confusion with the rival project. || Decisive win for the Fellini movie. Creator/UnitedArtists bought up the distribution rights to the other ''Satyricon'' and held it off the market to prevent it from competeting with the Fellini movie. The Fellini film got him a Best Director nomination while the other ''Satyricon'' was ignored. ||

''Film/SonicTheHedgehog2020'' || [[LiveActionAdaptation Live Action Adaptations]] of beloved properties that originated in the TheNineties.|| ''Sonic'' is an entirely new story that uses characters from the video game series, ''Pikachu'' is an adaptation of the [[VideoGame/DetectivePikachu 2016 spin-off game of the same name]], while ''Aladdin'' is an adaptation of the [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} 1992 animated film]]. All three received significant attention (positive and negative) for the CGI recreations of their mascots. While ''Pikachu'' and ''Aladdin'' are pretty close in terms of release date, the more focused-on rivalry has been between ''Pikachu'' and ''Sonic'' for which one will be able to avert the [[VideoGameMoviesSuck typical stigma associated with video game movies.]] || Too early to tell. However, ''Detective Pikachu'' has gotten off to a good start, with a $110 million international opening weekend and a slight edge over ''Aladdin'' among critics on Rotten Tomatoes. However, ''Aladdin'' has a solid $233 million international opening weekend despite receiving mixed reviews and opening on the cursed Memorial Day weekend. ||
