To be frank, I got tired of the disaster genre and directors like Roland Emmerich who seem to get their kicks by destroying shit for the sake of destroying it (erm, oh right, I mean to show how civilization deals with disasters. That's right) along time ago.
When the first teaser trailer for Emmerich's (the man behind Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow) latest end of the world film 2012 debuted I couldn't help but put my face into my palms and start sighing. One reason was because it was a film about the too much talked about end of the world in 2012. The second was because of how tiring, lame and quite frankly stupid the whole concept seemed.
Well now, the first full length trailer (to my knowledge) has debuted and I've gotta say things look mighty interesting. The effects look spectacular and at times the photography is frightening. I'm sure this film will end up being stupid, hokey and have a good amount of cheesy dialogue, but I'd be surprised if it isn't one of the more fun films of this winter.
2012 hits theaters November 13th and stars John Cusack, Thandie Newton, Woody Harrelson, Amanda Peet and Danny Glover. View the trailer below or click this link to be taken to Yahoo's page to download the HD version.
