Watch: This is the Way the World Ends, According to Cinema

In the movies, it's with a bang, not a whimper. 

If there's anything the human imagination loves conjuring more than extraterrestrial life, it's our own species' demise. (Naturally, sometimes they go hand in hand.) Recently, however, between North Korea's nuclear threat and climate change events, cinematic visions of the end of the world hit too close to home.

The folks at You're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat are here to remind you that the end is nigh—at least, according to the movies. The below supercut features footage from Armageddon, Deep Impact, Take ShelterDr. Strangelove, and many other apocalyptic films. Our favorite end-of-the-world movies? Children of Men and 12 Monkeys.

What's the best apocalyptic movie, in your opinion? Let us know in the comments.
