Have you noticed that there have been a lot of movies where San Francisco is destroyed onscreen lately? It's a very recent and very specific trend, so we've created a list of San Francisco disaster movies. The City by the Bay has taken beatings in everything from the new Planet of the Apes and Terminator reboots to Ant-Man, its first Marvel movie. Even Godzilla - last seen terrorizing New York in 1998 - recently rampaged in Fog City.
So what is it about San Francisco? It's certainly iconic with it's sheer hills and beautiful architecture. It also has the Golden Gate bridge, which allows for both land and sea destruction. It also has the benefit of both the ocean and being geographically close to Los Angeles. But we think maybe people are just jealous. It's got a $15 minimum wage, it's stunning, and is the center of the tech industry. Maybe LA is just feeling some spite for SF.Regardless of the reason, we wanted to take a look back all of the San Francisco films in which the city has seen destructive action or come close to total annihilation. Vote up your favorite action sequences below, because just which film will sit atop this list of times San Francisco's been destroyed on film is up to you.
