If there was ever anyone to challenge Michael Bay in the boom-boom stakes, it would have to be the German director, Roland Emmerich. And his upcoming disaster film, 2012, tells of a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world as we know it (or will know in 2012) and the struggle of a handful of survivors. It stars John Cusack, Amanda Peet, Oliver Platt, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Woody Harrelson and it set for a November 2009 release.
I’m a little tried of the whole disaster movie genre, but the 2012 trailer is full of CGI, pretty explosions, and small chunks of dialogue. And that’s certainly enough to keep my ADD-riddled brain engaged. Check it out below or see it in HD at YouTube.
The concept for the film is based on a Mayan belief that the world will end in 2012 so when the time comes, you’ll know who to blame ;-)
