Trailerrific: 2012

June 19th, 2009

I adore some of Roland Emmerich’s older movies: Stargate, Independence Day, even Godzilla. But then came The Day After Tomorrow and 10,000 BC. And while they had just as a crappy plot and cool special effects as his older movies, I always felt something special was missing that those older moves did have. (Theory: I was 10-14 when those first 3 movies came out, and 20-24 when the other 2 were released. It’s highly possible that my age did have something to do with it)

Anyhow, now comes his newest movie 2012. About the world ending in 2012. Cue a ton of disaster sequences, well-known landmarks collapsing, and lots of panicky people. The cast includes John Cusack, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Amanda Peet, Thandie Newton, Oliver Platt, Woody Harrelson and Danny Glover.

I think the trailer look awesome, although again it gives waaay to much away. Seriously Hollywood: cut back on the plot summary trailers. We don’t want to see the entire movie, before it’s out yet. Just give as a nice introduction to what the movie is about, which actors are in it, and one or two action sequences to give a feel what type pretty visual effects we’ll be getting. Nothing more.

So here’s the trailer:

What did you think of the trailer? Any good?
