2012 vs. Pandorum vs. Avatar

With 2012 out today, it might be a good time to read about changes in the tone of apocalypse tales over the past century, per this article from io9 pointed out to me by Charis Warchal.

And while we’re making charts of doomsday stories’ differences, feel free to use the short list below, which I’ve whipped up so you can keep track of the ominous slogans from this season’s sci-fi films:


Don’t fear the end of the world — fear what happens next.  (9/25/09)


The end of the world is just the beginning.  (11/13/09)


Welcome to Pandora.  (12/18/09)
