Hollywood takes on the apocalypse

LOS ANGELES: The end of the world once again comes to Hollywood's big screens this summer, with movies ranging from big-budget action adventures to indie comedies putting their twist on the apocalypse.

Earth is annihilated after aliens destroy the moon, giant robots battle monsters, and in a comedy take on the biblical rapture, mortals are left behind to deal with atheists and spirits.

"Oblivion," starring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman, starts the trend on Friday. Made on an estimated budget of $120 million and set in 2077, it follows the last humans as they prepare to find a new home on another planet.

"There's an innate fascination with thinking about what life would be like after we're gone," the film's director, Joseph Kosinski, told Reuters.

"Oblivion" will be followed in June and July by M. Night Shyamalan's "After Earth," starring Will Smith, all-star comedy "This is the End," zombie film "World War Z" and robots-versus-aliens adventure "Pacific Rim."
