10 Movie Characters You Want With You When The Apocalypse Comes

Yes, it’s time to think seriously about who you need on your side when the zombie disease hits/a nuclear blast cripples the infrastructure of the world/climate change finally proves all those sceptics wrong.

The world is ending? Bummer. It€™s not too late though. As so many films have taught us, from Zombieland to The Road there is always at least one pocket of survivors left. So, let€™s imagine that you woke up this morning and found that it€™s finally happened. After the first few days of crying and drinking and trying to convince yourself that life sucked anyway, you€™re going to have to come up with a serious plan. A plan which involves others because, honestly, you don€™t have the expertise necessary to survive this on your own. Yes, it€™s time to think seriously about who you need on your side when the zombie disease hits/a nuclear blast cripples the infrastructure of the world/climate change finally proves all those sceptics wrong. In those moments, a pistol and a knowing smile just won€™t cut it (sorry Mr Bond). We€™re going to need some serious skills to make it through to the finale.

10. Katniss Everdeen €“ The Hunger Games

Let€™s face it, most of us have no idea how to survive without a supermarket. Not so Katniss. She has survived life in the deeply deprived District 12 €“ where they don€™t even have a supermarket - thanks to her ability with a bow, and her knowledge of edible plants. This stood her in great stead in not just one, but two rounds in the Hunger Games arena. It€™s true, Katniss is prone to post traumatic stress, which could be a problem. Furthermore, she isn€™t always that bothered about others, so if you don€™t have a sweet kid to wave in front of her, you€™re going to need to sell the benefits of the position to her. Luckily, Katniss has a history of doing the right thing. Plus, she can take care of herself, so we won€™t need to divert any of our precious resources into protecting her as she slaughters the remaining creatures.

I'll watch anything, so long as it has a juicy plot, a couple of twists and hopefully a few scares. My favourite films include The Fugitive, The Last Starfighter and The Secret In Their Eyes. Television wise, I'm a big fan of the Nordic Noir, Sherlock and Doctor Who. All the classics!
