New Trailer for Roland Emmerich’s 2012

     June 18, 2009

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.
