Time for an apocalypse. But how? The apocalypse is a constant concern. Sometimes movies go, “Let's rock and roll.” Changing the entire world overnight isn’t an easy task, but someone has to do it – writers who want to explore a different or weirder world. Sometimes it’s done without explanation or cause as to why, you’re just suddenly in a new and different world where all the old rules have changed, because of The Cataclysm that happened in the Beforetimes. 

That’s not to say that Hollywood doesn’t get things wrong about the Apocalypse, or that the Apocalypse wouldn’t be horrible, or a third thing about how the Apocalypse is bad so it doesn’t sound like we’re rooting for the end of the world, but goddamn, isn’t it fun to watch a whole new world being born, even if it’s a terrible one?

Here's some movies and TV shows that deal with a full apocalypse.
