Clearly, there’s only one way to prepare for the impending end of days: watch as many post-apocalyptic movies as you can. Post-apocalyptic movies are a dime a dozen nowadays, but director Darren Aronofsky has cooked up an epic big screen adaptation of the granddaddy of all apocalyptic tales, Noah.
It’s already March but lets take a look at what post apocalyptic films we can expect this year! After those perimeters had been established, we just set out to think of ten films which would fit them, whilst also trying to offer up an eclectic and varied bunch of movies from different eras and countries. Whilst virtually all post-apocalyptic films are by their very nature a sub-genre of science fiction, some of the selected titles are trying to paint a highly realistic picture whereas others clearly take the more fantastical and spectacular route. Based on the 1957 novel of the same name by Nevil Shute, and the first of two adaptations for the screen (the second one being an Australian television film produced in 2000), On The Beach is a post-apocalyptic drama and considered the first truly important entry in the genre.
After humanity and life on the planet have gone virtually extinct due to man’s meddling with the climate, the only survivors find themselves on a constantly moving hi-tech train, which circles the planet. Apocalypse Zone - Apocalypse, Post Apocalyptic, Zombie movies, tv shows, audio books, podcasts, books and much more.
Yes, the famous Bible story has received the big-budget Hollywood treatment and will be one of the biggest movie releases of 2014. The film and Besson won Best Picture and Best Director awards at various international festivals and the movie was also nominated for Best First Feature at the Cesar Awards in France. Now, Akira is an example of a dystopic future which resulted after a post-apocalyptic event.
A post-apocalyptic future is the result of a major event that has either obliterated the majority of the population or has rendered the earth uninhabitable and deals with the remaining humans’ survival after said event. CraveOnline ranks the strangest, saddest and most iconic images of post-apocalyptic Earth in movie history.
Wall-E is and perhaps always will be the cutest post-apocalyptic movie ever made, about a little robot left all alone on Earth to pick up all the garbage that makes the planet uninhabitable to organic life forms. Normally a post-apocalyptic wasteland of unrecognizable scrap metal and hollowed out buildings would be enough, but James Cameron added homicidal killer robots to the mix in his 1984 classic The Terminator, and the image has stuck with us ever since.


Based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy, The Road is exactly what a post-apocalyptic movie should be: dark, scary, and heavy on the cannibalism. Despite Mel Gibson being a cuckoo clock lunatic, the Mad Max series are the best post-apocalyptic movies of all time.
The main plot is straightforward: as in the Bible, a man suffering visions of an apocalyptic deluge takes measures to protect his family from an impending flood, one sent by god to wash clean a world full of sin. Altough I was not a big fan of the first The Hunger Games film, I thought it was a ok movie and never bothered to watch the second film. In a post-epidemic world in which the entire population of the planet has been transformed into creatures which are best described as vampires with a streak of zombie in them, Dr.
Featuring a soundtrack of some of England’s top musicians, including a title song by David Bowie, and a distinct visual style, in which various styles of animation are used, When the Wind Blows comes highly recommended for lovers of serious animation and dramatic post-apocalyptic tales.
Judging from the trailers, the movie has a dark fantasy vibe to it, almost like the Lord of the Rings franchise, and features the strong use of magic. Now, a dystopian future may precede the post-apocalyptic one but not always– it could also follow it (like in Akira).
Most of those we would actually classify as dystopian films anyway and hence movies like Akira or Things to Come also haven’t been included.
Note: Zombie movies were not included, but let’s be honest, we all know this thing is going to end with some brain-eating. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, Thomas wakes up in an elevator, remembering nothing but his own name. Whilst tame and dated by today’s standards, The Last Man on Earth remains a wonderful oddity and arguably the grandaddy of all post-apocalyptic horror films which have followed since. If TV movies count, I’d add the magnificent, utterly depressing BBC drama Threads (Mick Jackson, 1984). A go-to place for the latest movie news, reviews and trailers from Hollywood and around the world. It also leads to one poignant scene where the only word in the entire movie is spoken after the man and the doctor have developed a friendship whilst being holed up in the hospital.


We’re still not entirely sure if this is a post-apocalyptic movie, or if France is just really, really strange. The Plot In a post-apocalyptic American Frontier, a lone soldier fends off a brutal warmonger to rescue a girl fated as the savior of humanity.
The story is set in a desolate post-apocalyptic landscape, after some sort of disaster has left the planet ravaged.
People here don’t seem to understand the difference between a dystopian future and a post-apocalyptic one.
First of all, we decided to focus on films which deal with the survival of a greatly diminished population after an apocalyptic event and not to include movies which deal with more or less functional rebuilt societies after such an event.
A small budget post-apocalyptic thriller about a heartbroken man and his new friends who must together battle marauders in order to survive in a new lawless world. The first Planet of the Apes, in which it only becomes apparent that we are dealing with earth in the final moments of the movie, is a prime example of this. Secondly, we decided to take the term post-apocalyptic literally and not to include any films which deal exclusively with the lead up to an apocalyptic event or the event itself.
Either way, we hope that there’s a good suggestion or two to be found for everyone in these ten post-apocalyptic goodies.
The cinematography is great and the lack of dialogue give this movie a unique and surreal feel.
Fun fact: John Carpenter wrote the movie as a reaction to Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal.
