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.
