Extinction Level Event: 25 Landmarks Destroyed in Film and TV

Grand Central Terminal (as destroyed in Armageddon)

City: New York
Also Destroyed In: The Avengers and Godzilla (1998)

Armageddon is a strange movie, and not just for the infamous Animal Crackers Scene, a scene made all the weirder because Steven Tyler is singing while Ben Affleck tries to bone Tyler's daughter with nature-show based foreplay that involves an attempt to migrate some animal crackers into her bushland. It's also a strange movie because Michael Bay could have blown up any New York landmark he wanted, and he chose to spend, like, half the disaster budget blowing up Grand Central Terminal. Perhaps an Amtrak delay or bad Auntie Anne's Pretzel brought this on. We don't know. What we do know is that everyone should recognize how much this movie sucked. If you want a real animal crackers scene, get familiar with this old school hit.
