The World Ends the Day After Tomorrow

2012So, according to the Mayans, the poop is going to hit the fan for good on December 21, 2012 and everybody on Earth is going to get flushed down the giant doomsday toilet via some terrible catastrophe. What the Mayans didn’t predict is that director Roland Emmerich would get a second shot at a punch-the-earth-in-the-soft-parts movie after his “The Day After Tomorrow” was a critical and box office failure in 2004. No offense to Emmerich, but he hasn’t made anything great since “Independence Day” in 1996 and “The Patriot” in 2000. His last movie, “10,000 B.C.” was cinematic vomit.

But back to the end of the world. Emmerich’s vision of the end will hit theaters on November 13, 2009. At first glance, especially with the teaser trailer, it looks like just another disaster movie from the guy who froze New York City and who blew up the White House. However, with this full-length trailer I found myself nodding my head in kudos to the epic scenes of destruction in “2012.” If Emmerich can connect visual goodness to equally compelling story, he might have a hit. I’d say the chances are slim, especially with the overrated John Cusak and Amanda Peet as your headliners.

Take a peek at the new “2012” trailer below. What do you think?

  • Death, destruction, folklore, little story line… doesn’t get any better than this. Ill go see it and probably get the dvd

  • The effects look pretty awesome, but I’m a little tired of the end of the world. Too much of that in real life. I want flying kittens powered by rays of sunshine and pink sparkles.

  • Yeah..hate these “end of the world” movies too, we always seem to get one or two once every 3-4 years. STOP!

    I get enough just watching the news these days.
    And im all for sunshine n stuff but Dan..yeah..yur gay. 8*)

  • Is it gay to like scantily clad, pink glittered ladies flying alongside said kittens? Is it gay to enjoy fisticuffs? Is it gay to enjoy discharging oversized firearms with a hot woman in one arm and a cold beer in the other? If so, then I’m gay. And if being gay is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

  • Hey! Im not bf is.

  • Not sure I would stand beside you Dan and say Im gay and definately not stand in front of you, but end of the world destruction stuff Im up for, never get enought of watching aliens blowing up the Whitehouse or russian ships up 5th avenue or my personal fav, When Worlds Collide!!!!! isnt that being remade? If only they would do a Space 1999 movie.
