2012 trailer 2 New 2012 Clip: Airplane Escape

A new clip has been released from the upcoming Roland Emmerich directed disaster flick, 2012. In case plot matters to you more than the promised destruction, here goes: The film shows us what could happen if the Mayan doomsday prediction of the year 2012 were to come true. We follow a divorced father and writer (John Cusack) as he uses his knowledge of ancient prophecies to help, along with the Government, make sure the human race isn’t completely wiped out from a series of global, catastrophic disasters.

You know, all in a day’s work for Emmerich…

The new 2012 clip is a bit less globally destructive than the trailers that have appeared so far, but gives us more of a look at the human side of the film (including Cusack’s) as they try to escape from a crashing plane in a Bentley. Standard stuff. Check out it:

I think just about every Bentley owner reading this (there’ve gotta be SOME out there!) just died a little inside after seeing those cars meeting their frozen, tumbling end. 😛

By now everyone keeping an eye on 2012 with anticipation should now know what they’re getting themselves into. Emmerich’s resume reads as a what’s-what of destruction and chaos (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow, Godzilla, 10,000 BC), and if it’s even physically possible, this looks to top everything he’s done so far in that department. Having a budget of about $200 million doesn’t exactly hurt in making the experience as thrilling and “realistic” as possible for audiences, either.

What do you make of the latest clip for 2012?

The film hits theaters on November 13th, 2012 2009.

  1. Well that just made me want to stay home even more. It’s not even going to be a serious movie.

  2. “Serious”????
    Are you kidding? I sure hope so! I KNOW that even Roland Emmerich doesn’t take his films seriously! He’s a kid, with a HUGE budget, making the movies he’d have liked to have seen when he was a (real) kid. I think his films area a blast! They’re popcorn fluff, nothing more.

    Complaining that a Roland Emmerich film is “not a serious movie” is like expecting a Michael Bay film to win an Oscar as best drama.

  3. wow, that looks wicked . Totally want to see this movie:)

  4. Well, that looked silly and over the top. Unfortunately, that probably means I will have to see it at some point…

  5. This movie has “retarded but will make a gazillion” written all over it

    Look back at ‘Independence Day’, how many jokes and little bits of humor did that movie toss in? For example, Will Smith placing the driving directions upside down, and flying the alien ship backwards into the wall, followed by a whimsical “oops”. And yet, ‘Independence Day’ still turned out to be a phenomenal film. I wouldn’t count ‘2012’ out just yet, I think it’ll be an impressive movie.

  7. Roland Emmerich has the knack for making exactly what it is he makes: fun, action-packed, light-hearted films, sometimes tinged with a touch of “message”, that can be watched with the brain safely set on “Off”.

    I’ve enjoyed every single one of his films I’ve seen so far, except maybe for 10,000 BC, which just fell a tiny bit flat for me. Not quite enough “fun” in it. And I regularly watch his critically (and fan) panned Godzilla and enjoy every second of it.

    I know what a “good” film is. Does mean I can’t enjoy a popcorn flick too.

  8. Emmerich is turning out to be a “disaster movie” version of Stephen Sommers,and that ain’t good.

    BTW,has anyone seen that animated segment with Woody Harrelson?I saw it in the theater before District 9 started and I have to say,it was actually kinda funny.

  9. The same thing that got people in theaters for movies like “Earthquake,” “The Towering Inferno,” “The Poseidon Adventure, the first one,” and “Meteor” is the same thing that slows traffic down at auto accidents… The Rubber Neck Syndrome! It will also get you in the theater to see “When Worlds Collide,” which is slated in theaters in the coming years.


    *everything goes quiet*

    Engine start.


    Haha, come on you gotta like the Russian billionaire character and John Cusack’s face when he starts the engine.

    And of course this isn’t a serious film. I’m not sure how you make a serious end of the world film other than Deep Impact, which was just depressing. I will however be annoyed if the end of the world is blamed on the US and global warming. I’m tired of watching that horse get beat.

  11. I had been initially very excited to see this movie, but after seeing this clip, I was planning on skipping it altogether. I think that the element of goofiness in this scene is something that had been missing from all of the previous press and indicates a completely different kind of movie than I had been expecting. Now that my sights are readjusted, I may give it a chance.
