Showdown

The World’s End

Best films about the apocalypse

Add a list or tag with showdown:apocalypse

A viral infection that’s spreading fast, an imminent alien invasion, aggressively tall plants taking over the world, a bored President tweeting vague threats from a golf course… However the end came, or however the earth was saved, which film did it best? Let us know your ultimate end-of-the-world movies. Films that are largely set in a post-apocalyptic world do not qualify, unless we see the apocalyptic event as well. (We’ll do a Post-Apocalyptic Showdown later. Trust us.)
