13 Hollywood versions of the doomsday
Various end light theories exist countless. Some of them look very plausible and based on sufficiently serious scientific basis, others are pure fiction. Of course, Hollywood screenwriters also not paid attention to such a fertile topic and head and share a lot of their own versions of events.
We offer an overview of "baker's dozen" of the most popular ones.
The virus that will turn all humans into zombies
The plot of the virus that will turn all the victims into mindless bloodthirsty zombies and very intently devouring the remaining healthy people, operated by Hollywood with admirable zeal. On this subject, taken and continue to act, and movies, and TV shows. List the names of all zombie movies is simply impossible. The most colorful and expensive are perhaps the last year's film "War of the Worlds Z" and the TV series "The Walking Dead", the output of the next season is looking forward to thousands of spectators.
land enslaved by evil aliens
Another favorite subject, which appeared on the screen as soon as the cinema more or less mastered the first special effects. During his more than a century of Hollywood film industry has filmed an incredible array of paintings on the subject, from the naive and frankly boring, to luxurious creations that present and exciting visuals and no less interesting story.
All living things die because of global warming
The climate on our planet is constantly changing. But if you had to glacial and interglacial epochs talked only narrow specialists, in these days of global warming say all and sundry. The popularity of this subject began to gain in the 70s of the last century, and in recent years, the climate is changing so rapidly that it is not seen a clear increase in temperature, it is simply impossible. Of course, Hollywood has immediately created a lot of colorful illustrations of almost all aspects of the complex and controversial theory of global warming. For example, in the movie "The Day After Tomorrow" all natural phenomena are shown with such realism, their perfect match serious theories noted oceanographer Stefan Rahmstorf (Stefan Rahmstorf) from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research).
All the plants will kill the mutant
Plants, according to the Hollywood writers will attack the unsuspecting inhabitants of the planet is quite a variety of ways. In some films, they become huge and bloodthirsty monsters swallow men like sundew flies. In others, they synthesize specific toxins, breathing people who go crazy and commit suicide.
After the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it became clear that the nuclear weapon capable of destroying not only civilization, but life itself, without any exaggeration. When open sources have access to these images and scientific descriptions, like nuclear apocalypse will occur, the Hollywood immediately answered by a volley of colorful paintings, in which giant explosions are shown in great detail and in strict accordance with the reality.
Animals pluck mind and seize power over the people
Today, people proudly call themselves the dominant species on the planet. But it depends on what is considered domination. For example, the chicken population exceeds the "livestock" Homo sapiens. And at the same chickens only eat and reproduce, but Homo sapiens they diligently served (before eating). Rats and mice in the world, too, much more than men. And nothing about the ants and say no - they went people not only strength, but even the total weight. Even a brainless abomination as roundworm, also much higher than the number of his humanity, and in many southern countries, they quietly devour a huge share of GDP. But all this boring reality. In Hollywood fantasy animals (mainly monkeys, which, unlike the flourishing chickens, rats and ascarids, now just are threatened with extinction) suddenly acquire intelligence and seize power over the world.
Vampires seize power
Are there vampires in reality, is not known. But in the movie the threat to humanity from vampires analyzed the most comprehensive way. In "Daybreakers" imaginative enough to make a situation where the vampires so bled the earth, that they themselves began to die of hunger.
Monsters from the depths of the ocean and research laboratories
About what is happening at the bottom of the oceans (and its average depth does not reach up to 4000 m, and only in the Mariana Trench reaches 10,994 m) science knows even less than what is going on in space. Nothing can be done - to dive under water for 5 km is more difficult than to rise above the Earth at 430 km (the maximum height of the ISS orbit). The lack of scientific data leaves room for fantastic conjecture. And from the mysterious depths of the earth come out one after another Godzilla and kaizen. A fantastically careless and constantly violate safety scientists in their laboratories enliven the fossil monsters, which immediately pulled out at the most busy streets to get a good lunch.
Earth asteroid will destroy
The probability of realization of such a scenario in life is not zero. A recent fall of a meteorite in Chelyabinsk all clearly showed that the terrible misfortune can bring even a small drop in the meteorite. Of course, in Hollywood theme asteroids and giant meteorite it is one of the most vital and bringing excellent box office.
The epidemics of common diseases
Movies on this subject are not as colorful as a zombie, but also occupy a fairly extensive ecological niche. They are writers and directors do not pay more attention to the entertainment of the frame (but do not forget about it), and various social problems and relations between people.
The power grab AI
As is known, any algorithm in the process of its creation, passes testing stage. That is, roughly speaking, to write something he wrote, but what he actually would do - do not know. I need to try. Further thought suggests itself - once doprobuetes to very large trouble. And filmmakers hard fantasize on the topic, touching the most incredible opportunities, but be sure to agree that as soon as AI is created, the first thing he decided to do - is to destroy or enslave their creators.
People will lose their ability to reproduce
The ability to have children is the basis for the continuation of the human race. And what would happen if people suddenly embrace mass infertility? Of course, they quickly die. "Children of Men" movie just analyze the situation, how it will happen. Serious critics liked it very much, but less serious viewers - no. As a result, the picture failed miserably, unable even to return spent on its creation tools.
The sun goes out
Also a very plausible assumption. Processes in the nearest star to us, from which we are entirely dependent, is too complex to understand, but their scope is too tsiklopichny so that we can for them to influence. One can only hope that a comfortable heat in our century will suffice, so dream on, and suddenly all the same will go out. The film "Sunshine" as the time devoted to this topic. The creators of a very serious approach to the development of the plot, and as a consultant to attract British physicist Brian Cox.
