10 of the Craziest Nuclear Bomb Explosions in Movie History

By Casey Chan on at

There have been over 2,000 nuclear explosions in real life but if we believe the movies, it seems like every other action movie drops one in for added colour. And I totally get it. I hope to never see a nuclear bomb go off in person but I wouldn't mind seeing more explosive mushroom cloud visuals in my movies. They look so cool.

Here are the top 10 nuclear bomb scenes in movies according to WatchMojo:

  1. Dr. Strangelove
  2. Terminator 2: Judgement Day
  3. The Day After
  4. Threads
  5. The Sum of All Fears
  6. Armageddon
  7. Independence Day
  8. The Dark Knight Rises
  9. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
  10. The Wolverine
