2012: It’s a Disaster!

Some time back we posted about Roland Emmerich’s upcoming disaster flick 2012. If you found the trailer a touch too serious, then here’s re-cut that may just make you feel a little happier.

The folks over at i09 used creative styling and music from the 70s to emphasize the film’s strong points – plane disaster, train disaster, whole city disaster! The most spectacular disaster porn EVER! Did I mention how disasterific it is?!?

All movie trailers should be made like this.

2012 Brings All Kinds of Destruction

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 ;-)
