    Default "2012" Trailer: The End Of The World, In CGI Technicolor

    This looks pretty astounding. No surprise, as it comes from the same director that brought you Independence Day. Stuff blows up, spectacularly.

    Looks ok but I still hold a resent as those assholes for "Godzilla".

    This 2012 hysteria is going to start kicking into high gear. History Channel had a few shows on it. Some of it sounds like the hysteria leading up to Y2K. But its the correlation of prophecy (Mayans, Nostradomus, Hopi Indians, Hindus) pointing to 2012 that is a little bizarre. That, and the fact that astronomers have confirmed what they Mayan's knew 2000 years ago: On 21 Dec 2012, the sun will be aligned with the center of Milky Way eliptical plane. Theroies abound about pole shifts, electromagnetic chaos, etc.....makes one think. If nothing else its the perfect premise for a movie for these CGI-o-philes.

    I saw the new trailer Friday and I wasn't impressed at all. Another cliche end of the world film with a happy ending. Fuck that.

    I want to see a film about World War III, total all-out warfare, mass hysteria and no happy ending. But I don't think any director has the balls to do it...and a good job of it at that.

    Speaking of WWIII, they're filming the re-make of Red Dawn in my city and all around the metro Detroit area. They turned downtown Pontiac into a communist area the other day.

    EDIT: and I see The J Man pretty much said everything I said in his post right above mine. I agree 100% with his summation of this film. I might see this in theatres. Probably not.

    Looks like a fun, brainless peak-season popcorn flick like ID4 was. I'm still a Cusack fan so I'll probably check this one out.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the Mayans are as fatalistic as
    they're made out to be. They signal 2012 as the end of an epoch, not so
    much the end of the world. Much the same way as Biblical prophecy is
    mistranslated as Jesus saying "I will be with you til the end of time" (or words
    to that effect), when in reality it's "until the end of the age" or "until
    the New Age", which has more to do with astrology and the end of an era
    and yes, "the dawning of the Age of Aquarius" than any end times wish
    fulfilment.

    I've always agreed with this above anything else out there.

    I always read it as the end of a cycle of the Mayan calendar, not so much an end of the world assumption.

    Probably worth watching just for the epic scale effects and John Cusack normally does a pretty good job.

    As I understand it, what little we know about the Mayan calendar is that it is the end of an epoch. The questions scholars ask is: Does the calendar start over or is this significant for some sort of event.

    The problem is that when the Spanish conquered the Mayan's, they destroyed much of the artifacts and written history, deeming it as pagan trash. It was only much later when scholars started investigating the remnants of Mayan culture that they found the astounding mathematical accuracy/complexity of their culture and their calendar.

    It is pretty phenominal that our sun and earth will be in eplitical alignment with the center of the galaxy on that day which only happens every 3000 or so years. Contemporary astronomers with all their wiz-bang tech toys only confirmed this recently. How did a bunch of loin-cloth wearing "primatives" know that? Interesting stuff.
