about this item

The apocalypse on the big screen has expanded beyond familiar end-of-the-world movies. Romantic comedies, teen adventures, even children’s films often feature apocalyptic imagery—disintegrating cities, extreme weather events, extinctions, rogue military forces, epidemics, zombie armies and colliding worlds. Using sophisticated CGI effects, filmmakers are depicting the end of the world with ever more stunning realism. The authors explore the phenomenon of the cinematic apocalypse and its origins in both our anxieties and real-world events, and identify some flashes of hope in the desolate landscape.
