** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{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.

Added DiffLines:

* IgnoredExpert: Most films of this genre (except those that focus entirely on civilian survivors), will have a scientist warning authorities of the potential for disaster in the early scenes and not being taken seriously.

Starred Gina Gershon [[WTHCastingAgency as the head of FEMA]], as well as [[Series/BeverlyHills90210 Shannen]] [[Series/{{Charmed}} Doherty]], James Brolin, and a returning Randy Quaid.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/EndDay'' (2005): An hour-long docudrama offering four (or five, depending on the cut) ways that natural disasters could cause the end of the world (or even just massive loss of life and property): megatsunami, meteor strike, pandemic, supervolcano eruption, and formation of a killer strangelet in the Large Hadron Collider.

* ''Film/{{Meteor}}'' (1979): A bunch of nukes built by SeanConnery and Brian Keith versus a giant asteroid. Not as cool as it sounds, sadly.

* ''Film/{{Armageddon}}'' (1998): An asteroid the size of Texas is headed for Earth, and our only hope is BruceWillis and his team of deep core oil drillers. Makes ''Volcano'' look like a scientific documentary. Directed by Creator/MichaelBay. [[DuelingMovies Dueled]] with...
