Quest Flick: How Hollywood Got Dust in Its Shorts

Hollywood has the uncanny ability to produce the same movie between two-to-five different studios, with each of said films coming out at roughly the same time. Armageddon and Deep Impact, and The Illusionist and The Prestige immediately spring to mind, and it seems as if those with the power to greenlight films are all stuck on the same fried neuron.
