Every landmark destroyed by Roland Emmerich

Every landmark destroyed in Roland Emmerich's movies

Roland Emmerich returns to the scene of his most triumphant movie moment this week, as terrorism thriller ‘White House Down’ finally makes it to UK cinemas.

Of course, it was exploding the White House into a trillion pieces in ‘Independence Day’ that made Emmerich a star, and since then, the German director has taken great pleasure in seeing major global landmarks fall by his hand throughout his career.

Join us as we chart every single monument Roland Emmerich has ever blown up. If it has tourists, he hates it. (Words: Ali Gray)
