If the world really is going to end on May 21, there's no reason to not go out entertained. And if you're looking for a preview of what that apocalypse might look like -- or a few pointers for survival in case you're the only one who makes it out alive -- that's all the more reason to fire up the Netflix and hit the couch.
While the chances are that the human race will live to see Sunday, there are plenty of films that detail a world in which people weren't so lucky, whether due to it's natural disaster, aliens, zombies or another threat. Here's a list of some of the most recent and some of the best -- take a look and suggest your own. Or, for lighter fare, go check out "Bridesmaids" or "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" this weekend.
