Indian films copying Hollywood movie concepts is hardly news anymore. Recently, however, we've been luckier, with films like Badlapur and Dum Laga Ke Haisha presenting original ideas that audiences have been responding to.

However, here is the trailer of upcoming Emraan Hashmi starrer Mr X, which was uploaded online on Wednesday night, which features the star as a man who can turn invisible at will.

And here is the trailer of Hollow Man, a Hollywood film released in 2000, starring Kevin Bacon.

While the plots of both movies look quite different, although they're both in the sci-fi action-thriller category, there are many elements that seem common to the two (e.g. paint thrown at the invisible character to make him visible).

While the trailer trended both on Facebook as well as Twitter, some people reacted in a more cynical manner.
