Over at First Showing they’ve got the brand new trailer for director Roland Emmerich’s 2012. In this new movie, as in several of his previous films such as Independence Day and The Day after Tomorrow, Emmerich reminds us that life is precious and so are our world’s natural resources. In fact, he kinda beats us over the head with it.
In this new film, based on the theory of the Mayan calendar telling us the world will come to an end in 2012, Emerich takes his job seriously once again and shows us that not only will the earth come to an end in 2012 but also that we will not, under any circumstances, enjoy it. In fact, it will be a giant pain in the butt full of tidal waves, earthquakes and fire raining down from the sky. Awesome.
Fortunately, as he’s also done in other films, Emmerich makes the destruction of out beloved planet at least look good. I guess that’s something, right? 2012 hits theaters and seals our fate November 13 .
Meanwhile, while you still have time, check out the trailer after the break.
