2012 trailer 2 2012 International Trailer

A new international (Japanese) trailer for the upcoming disaster flick, 2012, has made its way online, and for those who may be hoping that there’s more to the movie than the worldwide destruction and chaos we’ve seen so far in other trailers and posters, you’re out of luck.

Roland Emmerich’s films have always been about spectacle and destruction. And that is often a weakness in that we never really get the chance to become invested in any of the human characters in peril because Emmerich’s far more interested in the collapsing buildings or explosions nearby. Just look at Independence Day, Godzilla, The Day After Tomorrow, 10,000 BC… I could go on…

However, in spite of all that, I still find myself looking forward to 2012. There’s just something about that kind of special effects bonzanza that often turns out to be a lot of fun to sit in a theater and experience. Thanks to Collider, take a look at the latest trailer, and witness what a $200 million budget gets you:

.

Even by Emmerich’s standards, the special effects in this movie look insane. That’s not surprising considering the mammoth budget, though. Emmerich has proven that he can draw huge audiences and make studios a lot of money, which is probably why they’ve invested so much money in this film.

Along with the advertising of, “From the director of Independence Day,” and so forth, they also have both the spectacle of global destruction and the common knowledge fear of the Mayan 2012 doomsday prediction to get people interested. I predict this will make a lot of money at the box office.

What do you think of the latest 2012 trailer? Are you looking forward to this movie, and if so, why?

2012 hits theaters on November 13th, 2012 2009.

  1. I’m looking forward to it.
    Like you said, a feast for the eyes and the brain is just along for the ride. :)

  2. I’ll likely see it, but I’m not seeing it being anything better than The Day After Tomorrow. I just hope there isn’t anything like the wolves in this one.

  3. I’m excited for this one! I can’t wait!

  4. I guess I’ll have to watch this when I get home. It seems to freeze at 2:31. Darn slow network!

  5. I can’t believe it….An Emmirich film I’m actually excited to see since GINO.

  6. Great Trailer!!!!! Yeah!!!

  7. Now does anyone have any idea, on what gonna happen on 12/21/12? I like to hear theories.

  8. Well it’s a Friday, so I’ll probably be getting off of work early, going to see a movie or something.

    Of course no one knows for sure but they are saying that the Galactic Alignment is happening on that day. The sun will be directly in front of a super massive black hole located in the milky way and we will be directly aligned with the sun. The earth will tilt on it’s axis (like it does every 26,400 yrs) & mankind will have an awakening of sorts. Supposedly we are going to be able to unlock our genetic secrets and ascend to higher levels of ourselves…

    OR
    The black hole is going to suck us in.. we will be hit by a meteor… the earth’s crust will do a 360 rotation upsetting the current balance, resulting in tsunamis, volcanic eruptions & earthquakes…This is the end…beautiful friend..this is the end…my only friend the end.

  10. @Tweeb

    well this is my Respons to those to Answers.

    1.the alignment,Tilt Genetic secrets, higher levels:-
    sound Great, unlocking the genetic secrets will help thousands.
    we’d love it.

    and the second.

    2.the black hole, the Death-by-meteor collision, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, Earthquakes.

    uuuuuuummmmmmmm………let me change my pants and have the EMS revive me from my fear-induced shock.

    and wait…………………

    did you hear that ???????

    The embolism in the Back of my Brain has just popped.

    that sounds Terrifying !
    and BAD.

    ive read many theories on this subject, and you sir have sum’ed it up in 1 comment.

    so i say

    KUDOS

  11. So, what I’m getting is that one theory is there is going to be an “Eclipse” of sorts, and that following this “eclipse” there will be people who’s untapped genetic potential will bring out special “abilities” allowing them to rise above the “common” man. Possibly even becoming “Super” men. That sounds awesome! They should use that idea as a premise for a T.V. show!
    (If all that stuff happens, can I be Peter?)

  12. @brodie…thank you & please DO change your pants. We can’t have you walking around all ascended with smelly pants.

    @Johnny… Yes, the GA is an eclipse & mankind will ascend leaving peace and brotherhood on planet earth. I HOPE that is what happens. I think we are all ready for peace and brotherhood. No, you can’t be Peter cause IM PETER (only a chick so my name would be Pepper) :P

  13. LOL @ Tweeb Fine, fine you can be Pepper, the female version of Peter if I can be the non-japanese Hiro. (As long as I get to randomly yell YATA!) :P
    Ascension, peace, harmony, pants that always stay clean no matter what, all this sounds wonderful. I’m just wondering if I can ascend from the massive underground survival shelter I’ll be moving into. LOL

  14. Hmm… I’m thinking… 12 inch Ham and Pineapple Pizza.

    Sorry, was just wondering out loud what I’ll be having for dinner on December 22nd 2012…

  15. @Joshi… pepperoni, black olives and onions for me ;) and a beer with lime twist.

    We have lived through the GA before so likely it will be just another day. Maybe the wind will blow harder or something. Either way I will be praying ALL day 12/21/2012.

  16. Party at my place December 22nd, 2012, bring your own pizza (I’ll provide the alcohol).

  17. ALL RIGHT!!! Can I change my order to Long Island Iced Tea then?

  18. Fine but those things have 5 shots of vodka in them and I ain’t cleaning up after you…

  19. stupid doomsday…im flippin paralyzed neck down…yes even though no one could out run destruction, id sure as hell perfer running instead of scooting along slowly at a snails pace in my chair :(

  20. @patrick

    Tell you what, in the highly unlikely scenario that the world ends on that date I’ll find you and we’ll both have a beer while watching the end of the world happen. ;)

  21. @joshi

    i need tons of straight liquor not beer lol

  22. @patrick..that’s good cause joshi’s buyin’

  23. Come on over to the UK, Absinth’s legal here (that straight enough for ya?) ;)

  24. I want this to happen.
    Yaa…..
