Being a huge fan of apocalyptic/armageddon movies, here's a list of upcoming movies to watch, if you're into this sort of thing:


City of Ember (imdb)
October 2008 A corrupt mayor squanders the last energy and food in Earth's only surviving underground city. Two plucky teens (aided by dad Tim Robbins) race to crack a code that will help citizens escape to the surface.



The Road (imdb)
November 2008 Father (Viggo Mortensen) and son walk America's barren, ash-covered highways fleeing a postapocalyptic wasteland. (Shot on location in and around Pittsburgh.)



Autumn (imdb)
November 2008 One day humankind is decimated by a virus. The next, the victims are resurrected as killers. Expect — nay, demand! — legions of decomposed infectees-turned-zombies.



Chrysalis (imdb)
Late 2008 In this adaptation of a Ray Bradbury story, WW III leaves Earth nearly sterile, and a tiny outpost of scientists attempts to sustain plant life. Things get wacky when one of the researchers turns into a man-shaped pod.



Deadland (imdb)
Early 2009 WW III again. Nukes have wiped out most of civilization, martial law rules, and one man goes up against a gun-toting regime — with little more than his wits and his mitts.



Wasteland (imdb)
June 2009 Pollution destroys the ecosystem. Everything's going extinct. The cities empty. There's nothing left — apparently only a few bucks to rent Indiana Jones' fedora.



Mutant Chronicles (imdb)
August 2008 (Russia-only release?) Greedy corporations vie for Earth's last remaining resources. Meanwhile, Ron Perlman and John Malkovich battle over the last remaining pieces of scenery to chew.


The Last Man (imdb)
November 2008 Weaponized smallpox turns most of humanity into blind, vomiting, pus-oozing yet still walking corpses. Somehow, the uninfected 2 percent retain enough appetite to consume one another.

(no img for this one)
The Sky Has Fallen (imdb)
In a post-apocalyptic world, a new disease wipes out almost all of mankind within a couple of hours. Trying to avoid infection, people flee to remote locations, but they start seeing mysterious black figures, carrying away the dead and experimenting on them. Now, Lance and Rachel, two survivors determined to fight back, must kill the leader of these creatures before the rest of humanity disappears.

Sweet! I LOVE apocalyptic movies! I wonder how many of these are on my netflix queue


Just cause this is in the Global Meltdown forum....the timing of all these movies is kind of eerie. Doesn't Hollywood usually try to put out cheerful films during bad economic times?

*falls on the floor laughing*

I had no idea what that was til I looked it up. If that's the kind of drivel they're putting out these days, we may be in worse shape than I thought!!

And for the gamers (like myself) don't forget about Fallout 3. Definitely gets that post apocalypse flair down perfectly.

The only thing that bothers me is that this seems to be a sort of conditioning. I first realized it while watching the Matrix back in 2000 (or 2001?). Then quite alot of superhero movies came out . . . conditioning us . . . for what, I dunno. Now they are conditioning us to WW3, SHTF scenarios.

I too would like to see more about 'The Road.' Might go by Barnes&Noble and see if they have a copy.

BTW, Fallout 3 is a sweet game. Just bought it. Havent played it that much do to work and finishing up my 2nd, and hopefully last, degree.

I'm hoping that it is just the game, but I have been having some freaky dreams dealing with this situation lately.

Not conditioning, more like cause and effect. Sort of like The Day After Tomorrow coming out during the height of the global warming flap. The current conditions are causing people to think apocalyptical scenarios, which leads movie producers to want to take advantage of that current public interest, which (as we know) is repeated over and over as Hollywood never has a unique thought that isn't instantly plagarized in some manner by a half dozen additional movies.

They all look terrifying! Whatever happened to disneyesque Armegeddon? lol. Or my fave film of all time the Matrix? I can't do horrible imagery, it disturbs me greatly. Although I strangely like your avatar warren b.

This is great thanks. I love these movies but my husband just rolls his eyes.

Just wanted to add "Swan Song" by Robert McCammon is my favorite apocalyptic book of all times.

You Can't forget the new movie 2012 coming out in 2009. This movie will blow all the other movies on your list out of the water. The trailer is finally released so go take a look for yourself.

2012 looks awesome. I hope it lives up to the hype as so many movies have failed to do in the past.
