It's been a while since Roland Emmerich tore up the Earth.
The king of disaster is back, and this time it's not just major cities (as in "Independence Day") or the northern hemisphere (as in "The Day After Tomorrow") that are in trouble. "2012" calls upon an ancient (and very real) Mayan prophecy that the world would come to an end three years from now. The resulting trailer (below) is an orgy of Mother Nature's wrath and the human race's desperate struggles to survive. Looks interesting, but chances are I'll wait until it's on HBO next year before I peep.
