* PopularityPolynomial: Disaster movies went out of fashion ''twice'' -- the first time being after the genre burned itself out in the late '70s, and the second being the result of [[TooSoon 9/11]]. The 2004 tsunami didn't help either.

* ''The Hindenburg'' (1975): Why did this RealLife disaster happen? The fictional story chronicles the possibility that it was sabotage. A rare case of a DisasterMovie that holds off on the actual disaster until the finale. Notable for the sets being ''extremely'' loyal to the real ''[[UsefulNotes/TheHindenburg Hindenburg]]'', to the extent that the spectacular, dreamlike airship steals the show.

** Of particular note in ''{{Film/Sharknado}}'' and its sequels which have been hugely successful due to the entirely ridiculous and over the top premise of combining two entirely unrelated and incompatible disasters together. Has pretty much become and AffectionateParody.

* ''{{Film/Geostorm}}'' (2017): Centers, as the name implies, on a series of global meteorological disasters caused by weather-controlling satellites. It's the sort of premise one might expect from a director who's worked extensively with Creator/RolandEmmerich in the past.
