This book offers pointers and a frame of reference on how the characters behaved when their worlds were on the brink of desolation. It covers the genre’s biggest blockbusters like The Hunger Games, I Am Legend, Oblivion, and World War Z, while devoting equal time and attention to smaller, more obscure films that really deserve to be discovered.
