Roland Emmerich's latest end-of-the-world opus 2012 is a mish-mash of just about every disaster movie you've ever seen. Not sure if Nomad's 2012 review (read it here) quite did it justice? Then you won't want to miss Trembles' take on the flick!
Sometimes when you think about all the chaos in the world today, you can't help but feel that maybe, just maybe, it wouldn't be such a bad idea for nature to flip the switch on us and reboot our existence. Of course Platinum Dunes would then take this idea and make a grittier reboot in about a decade from now. We just can't win, I tell ya!

I'm no fan of Roland Emmerich. With that said, his upcoming be-all, end-all disaster epic 2012 (opening November 12th) is currently tops on my list of most anticipated movies of the latter half of this year. Every trailer hypes 2012 as this terrifying end-of-the-world disaster thriller playing off real-life fears of what may lie ahead for us all in 2012, and then you watch this clip from the film and I defy you not to laugh.
While we all are eagerly anticipating the end of the world in 2012, we can start dying vicariously through this new Japanese trailer for disaster-king (this looks good, but we're not ready yet to forgive you for what you did to Godzilla) Roland Emmerich.
