2012 Trailer

Could a film title be more ambiguous than 2012? Given our recent history with president-elect Barack Obama being the first African-American in the White House the first thing that came to mind about 2012 was it’s going to be an election year. Just googling 2012 will give you the most interesting results. Since the trailer for Roland Emmerich’s latest film hit the net you will get it as a result as well of course, but the more interesting links are the to be believed Mayan importance of the year 2012.

Whether you believe those things or not the trailer definitely got my attention. Not just for the powerful effect of a tsunami crashing into the Himalayas, but the way our governments would presumably prepare us for the world coming to an end. Not at all.

The film is currently in production in Vancouver, British Columbia. Starring John Cusack, Thandie Newton, Amanda Peet, Woody Harrelson, Danny Glover and Oliver Platt among others and directed and co-written by Roland Emmerich this film seems to follow in the wake of the director’s blockbusters like Independence Day and Day After Tomorrow. A friend of mine was an extra on the set and told me that they are going all out with this one. Huge cattle calls of extras for mass scenes, explosions, disaster and utter destruction.  It was like being in a different universe that was at war. Check out the trailer below the cut.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The apocalypse has returned once again thanks to Roland Emmerich. After seeing the trailer I will most definitely be at the theater when this film opens.
