The Asylum reimagines The Little Mermaid


This is a common strategy for The Asylum, as the film company often puts out low-budget copycat movies similar to big-budget releases. If we look at the variety of releases that came out just last year, there were titles like Top Gunner: Danger Zone, Battle for Pandora, jurassic dominationand Thor: god of thunder. It is certainly not a coincidence that these films were released at the same time as the films Top Gun: Maverick, Avatar: The Path of Water, Jurassic World Dominionand Thor: Love and Thunder.
