The new '2012' trailer will make you cry tears of fire and carnage

Dearest Michael Bay: I have seen many of your films and have enjoyed them greatly. Explosions, car crashes, shoot outs, giant metal things fighting other giant metal things: these are the things the modern action film are made of. As such, I love them all like tiny, violent children. I haven't seen Transformers: Revenge of Robo-destructo-porn yet, but I expect it to live up to the title.

However, there is a movie coming out later this year that threatens to make your films look like a Fancy Feast commercial. I speak of Roland Emmerich's 2012.

Judging by this trailer, 2012 is nothing but scorched earth, giant waves, and John Cusack and Chewitel Ejiofor getting paid. Wanton crap-exploding for two whole hours. And that last shot, with the U.S.S. John F. Kennedy crushing the White House?

Michael Bay, you just got served.

Marc Bernardin

P.S. My best to your awesome kitty.

Seriously, is that not the craziest trailer you've ever seen? My gods, it's full of everything…on fire!

    It has every action thing you could think of. Clearly no plot just how much money can put into this to make it the most action packed, fire crashing, explosion movie. Oh lets pay some people who aren’t working that much just to get us to watch. crazy trailer ever….

  • Astro Boy

    Needs more robots. And possibly vampires with guns.

    Wow… I love ID and Day After Tomorrow BECAUSE they show things crashing into landmarks. Sometimes I just want some awesome special effects and really don’t need a plot and this looks like it fits the bill. I’m there in November!

    Wow. I love Michael Bay for the crazy, plot-free, blow s*** up director that he is. But this trailer is seriously the most plot free, blow s*** up thing I’ve ever seen.
    I am so watching this movie.

    Roland Emmerich is the hackiest hack in the history of hacks. He’s like Ed Wood with an unlimited bank account. And at this point, he’s just making the same movie over and over again. This looks indistinguishable from The Day After Tomorrow.
    Who goes to see this crap?

  • nykolus

    what the hell was that???

  • tim

    AWESOME! Yea, the plot’s probably thin as ice but who cares?!! There’s plenty of hype about 122112, and this movie definitely peaks my interest. I’m there!

  • Theresa

    Holy crap.

  • apuluvmanjula

    Um, does Roland Emmerich have something against the White House or something?? This has got to be the third or fourth time he’s destroyed it in one of his films…

  • Harry K

    Wow, ridiculous

  • e4ia

    Ouch. That must hurt when those things happens.

    ok. look. if you people like plot free movies, then why don’t you just ask for hollywood to make a sequence of really impressive things blowing up that at least doesn’t try to pretend to be a real movie. i have nothing wrong with amazing special effects, but what is wrong with them actually serving the plot instead of replacing it? and the fact that you people are proud of the fact that you like your entertainment mindless? it’d be mindblowing if your minds weren’t already blown out before!

  • Erin

    LOVE IT! But my favorite part was Mr. Emmerich’s pronunciation of the the word “yahoo” at the beginning.

  • Karen UF86

    Too many flat vs 3D, fake vs. real special affects- way overdone, it gave me a headache. A little less panavision and more specific to less scenes would have been better, but who I am- I won’t go, but lots of gloom and doomers will and the 2012 hype will get a boost. But more power to the movie makers that makes one that gets people out of the house to a real movie.

  • idiots

    the fact that you people are proud that you like your entertainment mindless not only incredible, it’s reprehensible. you should be ashamed to call yourselves human beings. i’m all for awsome special effects, but whatever happened to having your effects SERVE the plot instead of REPLACING it? we really have come to that point that many sci fi books and movies have warned about where people are just breathing automatons with no desire to think or rationalize. i mean why do you even bother living? and it scares me that people like you voice your opinions and influence events or vote, because you don’t really have any. you just want to see things blown up. wooo.
