Climate change is inspiring the ultimate scary movies | Ryan Gilbey

1 January 2010 1:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Disaster film-makers struggling to compete with the realities of the post-9/11 world have, in global warming, found the perfect plot device

It may be the start of a new year, but as far as cinema is concerned that doesn't mean it can't also be the end of the world. Even before January is out, audiences will have been given two gruelling visions of the future from which to choose. You can experience your dystopian forecast in moderately Hollywood-friendly form in The Book of Eli, in which Denzel Washington battles unwashed marauding types in a harsh futuristic landscape. Or you can take your medicine straight in the form of The Road, an adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's novel about a father and son trudging through a world scarred by environmental collapse.

Long before such films, or recent animated equivalents like Wall-e or 9, we have harboured a cultural compulsion to imagine our collective demise. »
