There are so many films about apocalypse and the aftermath that there are websites devoted just to them. If this interests you, try which is attempting to build the largest database of such films. Unfortunately, this is not a genre I like, so I can only recommend a few classics. Like science-fiction films, these movies often deal with challenging and thoughtful issues, so I regret my lack of enthusiasm for them.

When Worlds Collide: 1951 by Rudolph Mate. A planet is on a collision course with the Earth, and no will listen to the warnings.

The Day the Earth Stood Still: 1951 film by Robert Wise, recounting the results of the arrival of an alien spaceship.

On the Beach: 1959 by Stanley Kramer, a classic post nuclear tale in which the last survivors deal with the knowledge that they have only a few days to live.

Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes: 1968 and 1970 respectively, by Ted Post. A spaceship crashes on an Earth-like planet that is run by intelligent apes. Very clever.

Independence Day: 1996, by Roland Emmerich. Planet Earth is invaded by hostile aliens and scientists struggle to find a defense.
