Preview–Another new entry in “The End” genre

Goodbye World poster

People talk about post-apocalyptic films all the time, but rarer are those films that are about The End.  Films like Terminator 3, and the recent release After the Dark.  So what do you call these films?  Apocalypse films?  Does the category even need its own sub-genre or does post-apocalypse work?  Any other films fit this grouping?  Do you agree they all fall under science fiction?  Not all apocalypse or post-apocalypse films are dystopian, so that term doesn’t fit.

Here’s the trailer for Goodbye World:

Notable is the lead actress Gaby Hoffman, now all grown up, she played the little girl in Uncle Buck and Field of Dreams, and has a role in the upcoming Veronica Mars movie.  Also look for Caroline Dhavernas–the star of the great cult favorite, short-lived comedy series Wonderfalls and the current series Hannibal.  And Ben McKenzie will be playing a young Commissioner Gordon in the coming Gotham TV series.  Look for Goodbye World in theaters April 4, 2014.
