New Trailer for Roland Emmerich’s 2012

by     Posted 5 years, 90 days ago

2012_screengrab_01.jpgI guess the film’s called “2012″ because that’s when the Mayans predicted that the world would end (and yet they didn’t see the end of their own civilization coming; whoops) but a much better title judging from the trailer [via Yahoo! Movies] would be “Set Piece: The Movie!”  Does this movie have characters?  Do people actually talk to each other?  I’m starting to think that director Roland Emmerich just sits in front of his computer playing “Sim City”, hits one of the “Disaster” buttons, and says “That would be a great movie!”  I was left dumbstruck by this trailer because while I’m not excited for the film, I’m amazed that Emmerich has apparently come one step closer to his personal cinematic zenith of making movies where everything gets destroyed.

Also, it looks like the Mayans were right on with their prediction that the USS John Kennedy would fall on top of the White House.  We should have listened to those guys.

Check out the trailer after the jump.  “2012″ falls on to theatres on November 13th.

    Actually, The Mayans did predict their end.
    Their was a Prophecy involving the return of one their God, Quetzalcoatl, in human flesh (he was described as a human, with very pale skin), on top of a horse and escorted by his army, which could bring down thunder and kill in an instant.

    As you might know, the Conquistadors were the ones who put an end to the Mayan civilization. The leader of the group had achromatosis (albinism), they were riding horses and had guns (which could be mistaken with thunder at the time, sound-wise).
    Aside from prediction nonsense for some, there is some hard archaeological evidence which proves that many Mayans destroyed
    their own houses the night before.
    In term of Divination Accuracy/Coincidence, the Mayans were pretty good.

    Anyway, I get your point, and the trailer gave me headache (and I thought Bay did too much…), but get your record straight.

      So instead I’m supposed to trust a civilization that saw its end and did nothing to prevent it? Much better.

        Did I ask you to believe ?
        By asking this question your tring to take the discussion somewhere else.
        The point is that the argument wasn't valuable because it was wrong.
        Your comment was much less relevent (for me) from that point on.
        Look, I'm neither a "believer" nor a hardcore skeptic, I'm just tring to state the facts here. OK ?
        Can we get back to the movie, now?
