Every great disaster movie has some moments of pure, epic destruction, where everything collapses, burns or blows up real good. Bonus points for destroyed landmarks and victim cameos. Here are 30 amazing money shots from the greatest disaster porn flicks.
For the purposes of this round-up we're defining a "disaster movie" as one where the main point of the film is the disaster. So Godzilla qualifies, butSuperman: The Movie doesn't. We also decided not to include any clips from the venerable 1970s Airport series, but you can watch some of thosehere, here and here.
Below are the splodiest, most cracktastic, scariest and most expensive-looking scenes of destruction from 2012, The Day After Tomorrow, Cloverfield, Armageddon, The Core, Deep Impact, and many other movies. It's in gallery format, so you don't have to wait for 30 videos to load in your browser. If you want to see it in non-gallery format, click here.
