It's funny, I really thought that Michael Cera would be incapable of playing this character, but looking at these trailers, I get goosebumps at how true to the character he is. The whole thing seems like a great service to C. D. Payne's masterpiece.

So Roland Emmerich got tired of destroying Manhattan and decided to do the same to the rest of the world. I can safely say he does a much better job when he thinks in larger proportions. 2012 is the Godfather of disaster movies; earthquakes destroy Los Angeles and half of California with it; a volcano erupts and consumes most of the Midwest; tsunamis consume the Himalayas, and the Earth takes an 180˚+ turn turning Michigan into the South Pole! (I'm not joking this actually happens). Of course Emmerich does not expect us to believe this could actually happen, which is good since last time he spent too much time on the "sciency/I want to make this plausible" bullshit it kind of ruined The Day After Tomorrow. 2012 does have "scientific" briefings, which is a bit of a shame but I will get to that later. But first thing's first.

Ok, so here's the thing. This is easily my favorite version of the story I've ever seen. It's really, really good.
But I'm just so sick of this story!

Well I'm definitely going to have to watch this one again.
Once again, Richard Kelly has given us a total experiment in how much the mind can handle in a film. Fans of his infamous cult film, Donnie Darko, will be in for a treat as they watch The Box take them on a long, twisting track of a movie that only leaves you with one thought at the end.

I often forget why George Clooney is so famous. Every now and then when a trailer for one of his movies pops up, I think to myself, this guy?
