2012, the end-of-the-world

2012, the end-of-the-world feature film that critics say is a disaster all by itself, gets another trailer... and this one is just as OTT

The first trailer for end-of-the-world disaster movie 2012 proved there really was no stunt too ambitious or too silly for Hollywood's latest blockbuster.
It portrayed an epic story of a world ravaged by fires, earthquakes, meteor showers and floods and a heroic struggle for survivors.
And the three-minute trailer also found room to show planes flying between crashing skyscrapers, continents sliding under the oceans, and roads torn to shreds like ribbons.
The second trailer not only proves the first trailer's point, it triple-underlines it and follows up with ten exclamation marks.

In the first two-minute trailer of 2012, directed by Roland Emmerich - the man behind Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow, mankind is seen to fight for survival after a prophecy about about an apocalypse.
John Cusack leads an all-star cast, featuring Danny Glover, Thandie Newton, Woody Harrelson, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Amanda Peet struggling to stay alive when the Earth is threatened with the biggest disaster man has ever known.
But as with all apocalyptic movies, there are a lucky few who survive the terror... after Americans appear to be save the day (yet again).
It looked, however, as if the CGI experts have been given a completely free hand designing this apocalypse - with the net result that the trailer bordered on laughable.
Then the second trailer hit, which starts with a peaceful domestic scene between Cusack and Peet and ends up showing us more of that dramatic plane ride through a city which plunges into the depths of Hell as they fly by,
Critics in the U.S. are already beginning to describe the movie as a disaster in itself.
The OTT effects and over-dramatic story has come in for some criticism even before the film hits the big screen.
If the trailer is anything to go by, we're likely to see every kind of disaster imaginable, all crammed into one big turkey of a film created by a director reknowned for his overboard use of effects.
One critic says of the trailer: 'The 2012 The Worst is Over Movie Clip that recently found its way online is full of the absurd action and grand special effects audiences have come to expect from a Roland Emmerich film.
''At the beginning of the clip we are given a glimpse of the Curtis’ family dynamic present in 2012. As the clip continues, the delivered action is so over-the-top it almost looks like an cartoon.'
Suddenly, there is a solar eclipse... prompting all hell to unleash.
News reports feature coverage of a mass suicide at the site of Mayan lunar calendar.
Next London is seen besieged by furious rioters - angry crowds erupting in fury after the 2012 Olympics are suddenly suspended.
The Metropolitan police are seen struggling to contain the angry crowds as the high-profile, billion pound games are suddenly pulled.
Disaster begins to spread across the Earth at a rapid pace with Brazil's beautiful Rio de Janeiro submerged under the ocean.
The city's iconic Christ the Redeemer statue is seen crumbling into dust as it is surrounded by fish and stingrays.
The action then moves north to the traffic jammed streets of Los Angeles. Suddenly the freeways are ripped off the ground in a huge earthquake with cars flying in every direction.
Away on a calmer desert road, Cusack's character Jackson Curtis is driving a camper-van with his two children, Noah (Liam James) and Lilly (Morgan Lily).
As a science fiction writer, Jackson makes light of ancient prophecies predicting apocalypse on December 21 2012, joking to his kids: 'What are the odds?
Seconds later, his words come back to haunt him as hundreds of giant meteor balls of fire rain down on the planet.
Jackson speeds as fast as he can, but his driving skills can't outwit the awesome might of nature.
Thousands of people in prayer at The Vatican City's St Peter's Basilica are praying for salvation... but it's too late.
Michelangelo's masterpiece Creation of Adam on the roof of the Sistine Chapel is seen to rip apart as St Peter's crumbles onto the the priests, nuns and congregation.
Managing to survive his campervan fire, Jackson and his kids have heard a rumour that the U.S. government were preparing for this day and have built invincible ships.
Miraculously, Jackson tracks down his ex-wife Kate (Amanda Peet) and the pair agree to fight together for their sake of their kids.
As well as showing Jackson's plight, the action takes us inside the White House, where President Wilson (Danny Glover) and his daughter Laura (Thandie Newton) have some tough decisions to make for the future of the human race.
President Wilson's scientific adviser Adrian Helmsley (Chiwetel Ejiofor) is seen arguing with a military advisor who claims unemotionally: 'Our mission is to ensure the continuity of our species.'
Adrian hits back: 'Isn't it also decided that people have the right to fight for this lives?'
The last shot of the lengthy trailer is ironic - as a giant naval ship USS John F Kennedy is washed in to Washington D.C. and lands on the White House - where he lived 49 years previously.

• 2012 is set for release worldwide on November 13.

Wiele można o tym filmie powiedzieć, ale technicznie jest zrobiony perfekcyjnie.

That’s all, folks
Przekażmy sobie znak pokoju.
Hasta la vista, Vaya con Dios
Я возвращусь, Ich werde zurück sein, Je reviendrai, Estarei de volta, Θα είμαι πίσω, I červnu se zpět, Leszek vissza, وحقوق عودة
