25 best apocalypse movies
Independence Day (1996)
Independence Day has all the essential ingredients for an apocalypse movie – well, an almost-apocalypse movie. Area 51 intrigue, the American President hanging out with the rest of the boys – oh, and some downright mean aliens. Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum are the dream team combining computer smarts with wise-cracking stupidity – we mean – bravery in the face of flying saucers zapping every US landmark in sight.
