* ''Short Walk To Daylight'' (1972): A TV movie, where an earthquake strikes New York and a group of passengers in a subway, led by a cop played by James Brolin, must try to find their way back to the streets above after realizing nobody will be looking for them. Quite well liked despite being rather obscure, with a low budget, and notable for taking place entirely underground.

* ''Film/MarsAttacks!'' (1996): A parody of '50s AlienInvasion films, which overlapped into the disaster genre. Directed by Creator/TimBurton, and starred JackNicholson, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, and [[SexAndTheCity Sarah Jessica Parker]], with early roles by Jack Black and Natalie Portman. Had the misfortune of arriving a few months after ''Film/IndependenceDay'', and barely made back its budget.

* ''The High and the Mighty'' (1954): An UnbuiltTrope example of the genre. Starred JohnWayne, who was also co-producer. Its plot, about a plane that suffers engine failure on a flight from [[UsefulNotes/{{Hawaii}} Honolulu]] to UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco, would later be copied by ''Airport''.

* ''Deluge'' (1933): One of the {{Ur Example}}s, making this trope OlderThanTheyThink. Most of the film was thought to be [[MissingEpisode lost]], save for a scene of [[BigApplesauce New York]] getting destroyed by earthquakes and tidal waves. In the late 1980s, however, a complete print dubbed in Italian was discovered in a film archive. One scene, showing the Statue of Liberty getting hit by a tidal wave, would be copied over seventy years later by ''Film/DeepImpact'' and ''Film/TheDayAfterTomorrow''.
