Times when Statue of Liberty has been destroyed in fiction?

Just a thought I had, following a leak I read today about

Spoiler

a film set in New York which appears to have scenes set on Liberty Island (and unclench).

 

 

Can you name stories (movies, TV shows, books, games etc) where the Statue of Liberty has been destroyed?

I'm currently watching The Man in the High Castle and it gets destroyed in a fashion that I doubt you will see anywhere else. 

 

Damn Nazis.

I think the two most obvious ones are Planet of the Apes (I don't think it's clear if it's destroyed or just buried but it's not in a good way) and on the poster for Escape from New York.

The first X-Men film.

 

Wolverine slices off the tip of one of the crown's points, and Magneto traps the X-Men by bending some girders inside the head. Does that count as the statue getting destroyed?

Contrary to what Charlie Heston says, it is very clearly not blown up. In fact it seems to have survived more intact than anything else from the previous human world.

I always thought he was referring to the planet (of the apes) rather than the statue itself.

I thought the statue was one of the few they didn’t get.  Empire State Building & White House deffo, but I don’t remember seeing Liberty in bits.
