Willem Defoe is All Crazy in the Trailer for ‘4:44 Last Day on Earth’

2012 is here, and yet we haven’t been evaporated just yet. Don’t tell that to the folks who have Willem Defoe dancing around and chewing up the scenery in the newest trailer for 4:44 Last Day on Earth.

The film takes the “end of days” premise to a new level of technology and immediate information. Here’s the quick premise for the flick.

In a large apartment high above the city lives our couple. They’re in love. She’s a painter, he’s a successful actor. Just a normal afternoon – except that this isn’t a normal afternoon, for them or anyone else. Because tomorrow, at 4:44 am, give or take a few seconds, the world will come to an end far more rapidly than even the worst doomsayer could have imagined.

The final meltdown will come not without warnings, but with no means of escape. There will be no survivors. As always, there are those who, as their last cigarette is being lit and the blindfold tightened, will still hope against hope for some kind of reprieve. For a miracle. Not our two lovers. They – like the majority of the Earth’s population – have accepted their fate: the world is going to end.

The flick hits theaters on March 23rd, but you can check out the trailer after the jump.
