10 Apocalypse Movies to Watch With Happy (or at Least Not Totally Depressing) Endings

Current events notwithstanding, Hollywood rather adores imagining the apocalypse on the big screen. Many doomsday movies end with total destruction; that rogue planet is just gonna go ahead and vaporize Earth, or those zombies are just gonna take over forever.

Here’s how to turn your home or business into movie set

Numerous homeowners in Southern California have been making extra bucks by renting out their properties as movie, TV and commercial locations for decades. Fewer business owners may be aware that they can get a piece of that lucrative action.

Trent Reznor Really, Really Hated Working on ‘Bird Box’

Last year, Bird Box became Netflix’s biggest hit movie, setting the streaming giant’s seven-day records and inspiring dangerous memes. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock, takes place in a post-apocalyptic world that has been overrun by monsters that cause people who look directly at them to kill themselves. For a movie that’s all about sight (or lack thereof), Bird Box would have to rely heavily on sound. But one of the key composers behind that sound, Trent Reznor, who composed the Bird Box ...

‘Bird Box’ Honest Trailer: Netflix Canceled a Blind Superhero Show for This?

Netflix famously canceled Daredevil, the Marvel series about a blind superhero. But they went ahead and produced the adaptation of Josh Malerman’s novel Bird Box. Apparently it had a better chance of survival for those without the ability to see. The result was a more grisly, less subtle, subpar retread of A Quiet Place, and Honest Trailers couldn’t resist taking some jabs at the movie, even though it didn’t get a traditional home video release.

Superhero Aquaman strikes out on his own in a thrilling (if overlong) voyage, writes BRIAN VINER

Aquaman (12A) Verdict: Ocean-going nuttiness Rating: A loopy combination of superhero movie, Bond film, the legend of King Arthur, David Attenborough’s Blue Planet and for those old enough to recall ITV’s World Of Sport, the Saturday afternoon wrestling from Brent Town Hall, Aquaman is like the weirdest dream you will ever have. It is also at least 25 minutes too long, thereby accomplishing the neat trick of being both a blast and a bore. It begins with Nicole Kidman, looking even more airb...
