MovieFone has premiered the trailer for Roland Emmerich’s next big all-style-and-no-substance popcorn movie: 2012. They have high res and HD versions over on their site, but we have a smaller one for you right here.
As usual, Emmerich looks like he’s putting out another movie that has special effects that will be a CGI visual feast, but (and yes, I know it’s to early to tell) I’m betting it’s another “check your brain at the door” movie.

Anyway, you can judge for yourself what kind of movie this looks like it’s going to be by checking out the teaser trailer:

2012 arrives in theaters July 10, 2009 November 13, 2009 (in plenty of time before the end of the world).
