Hollywood Disaster Maps

At the movies a city-destroying disaster is just the expected conclusion of any big action movie. Politicians and the media can argue all day long about whether Hollywood is destroying America in the spiritual sense, but filmmakers definitely love wrecking the country as part of a blockbuster narrative.

Check out this Hollywood disaster map that illustrates just how and where the movies like to hit. Not surprisingly, New York and Los Angeles lead the rest of the country in terms of general destruction. The infographic was put together by Reuben Fischer-Baum and Samer Kalaf. Their map covers 189 cinematic attacks (it doesn’t count post-apocalyptic adventures or small-scale attacks), which means it’s by no means a comprehensive list. For “fictional or undefined locations” like Gotham City, they assigned an approximate real-world analogue. Thanks to /Film for the link.
