Trailer: 2012

Maybe the only other film this year with enough bloated sensory chutzpah to topple Michael Bay's throne of obscene blockbuster excess that is Transformers 2, Roland Emmerich's upcoming 2012 looks like it's nothing less than the Disaster Film to End All Disaster Films. Which says something, since the man's pretty much the go-to-guy if you want to see civilisations levelled, having built a career out of staging glossy CGI-rendered catastrophe of biblical proportions such as Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow. One can't help but laugh at the OTT-ness of this thing:

Also, have a look at the terrific spoof edit (I think it sums up the essence of Emmerich's cinema quite well):
