I vaguely recall seeing a movie trailer, most likely in the late 90s or early 2000s, about a movie set in the year 3000 where aliens blow up Earth. Anyone know what it might have been?

Edit: This was in English, in an American movie theater. I recall the trailer being live action, though it's possible my memory is faulty.

    What kind of movie was it? Live action? Animation? Where did you see it? USA? Europe? Asia? What language was it in? By the way, welcome to the SF & Fantasy Stack. Have you taken the tour yet? – SQB Nov 19 '16 at 20:17

    Do you mean they literally blew up the entire planet or just nuked us from orbit? – Valorum Nov 19 '16 at 20:18

This sounds like the trailer for Titan A.E., released in 2000.

It's prominently mentioned that the setting is the year 3028, right before the Earth gets pulverised

  • It doesn't seem similar to what I remember, but it's possible. I'll see if anyone comes up with a different suggestion. Thanks for the help though. – Antimony Nov 19 '16 at 20:13
  • @Antimony - The Earth blows up at 0:30 – Valorum Nov 19 '16 at 20:15

    @Antimony - If there are any other details you can recall, you should add those into the original post. – Valorum Nov 19 '16 at 20:16
  • Sorry I never got around to accepting this answer before. I think this must have been what I remember, and the rest is my memory playing tricks on me. – Antimony Mar 5 '18 at 17:17

It's not set in the year 3000, but aliens blow up Earth in the trailer to Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which was released in 2005.
