Thread of Fictionally Destroyed Cities

I have decided to make a photo thread that I hope to see people contribute to that shows cities being destroyed or cities already in ruins, be them fictional cities or real cities. So here is a large compilation of these types of photos.

also No real disaster photos such as 9/11, Oklahoma City bombing and what not

London in the movie flood

How about Los Angeles in 2012:

video

other ones I remember are Paris and New York in Armageddon:


(there are probably better pictures)
video
and San Francisco in '10.5' (absolutely ridiculous miniseries):
video

2012 is definitely the most epic

videos are good for cities being destroyed.

I'm already starting to post on the 'Skyscrapers in Movies' though. I'm an older forumer with an enviable collection of 1950s-1970s collection of film cuttings and stills-so big a local library has to store them for me.

Are we doing love stories on that one and disasters on this one?

Advice and PM's welcome. i can nuke anywhere but before the Reagan-Thatcher era preferably.

Does Chicago get destroyed in any movie? I can't think. It appears that Chicago is the post-apocalyptic capital of the world. :-D

i have never seen Chicago getting destroyed in movies it kinda bugs me that it doesn't its always new york or Los angeles i mean come on Chicago is a great city to blow up in movies it has just as many landmarks as new york and LA

although if u see the history channel series life after people it shows what would happen to Chicago if there were no people kinda interesting

heres some pics from that show


and heres what the Sears(Willis)tower would look like 200 years after people as u can tell its about to fall down in this pic

Charlton Heston saves the world (or what's left of Los Angeles) and goes up quite high to do it!

Presentation from the 1975 London showing.
