Pegg & Frost's 10 favourite apocalypse films

Zombies, aliens, damned-dirty apes; ahead of the cinematic release of The World’s End, our special guest editors present their favourite apocalypse films

Nuclear winters, mass zombie attacks and fast-spreading deadly viruses; it’s fair to say that Hollywood execs don’t seem to be too optimistic about the future of planet Earth. But, while their obsession with an eventual descent into dystopian hell is undeniably worrying, it also makes for some epic films. And, of course, it makes for some great heroes, too – because great heroes are always ‘the lone wolf’ who find the future of the world as they know it on their troubled shoulders. With that in mind, and our guest editors poised to top off their own post-apocalyptic trilogy in triumphant style, we asked alpha-geeks Nick Frost and Simon Pegg to curate a list of what they consider to be the top 10 apocalypse films. Deep Impact? Armageddon? No? Could you pass that coat?
