is that a Noah's Ark thing they have got going(in the newest trailer)..with the Giraffe being airlifted and then saying they are building these ships?

looks good,but yeah it doesnt look any different from the others(thats good though,hopefully better script),with John Cusack and family fleeing,it reminded me a bit of War of the Worlds as well(Spielberg remake)

You'd think with an overabundance of water in some parts of the world there would be other parts that are bone dry. Or is it just amazing coincidence that the water follows these people wherever they go?

Unfortunately it looks like "The Day After The Day After Tomorrow" with the only difference being that 2012 is a bit warmer and wetter.  I don't understand why Emmerich has to take what could be a compelling disaster drama and fill it with ridiculous action scenes like the car jumping out of a moving plane or a plane dodging falling buildings.  I'm surprised Laird Hamilton wasn't seen near the USS John F. Kennedy while it approached the White House. 

It looks like a cool mindless destruction film (the coolest aspects of "The Day After Tomorrow" were the environmental disaster scenes), but outside of that the action scenes and wooden performances could unfortunately put it on-par with "The Day After Tomorrow" and "Independence Day".  Although I shouldn't be too surprised as Emmerich seems to remain pretty consistent, and it would be naive for me to expect something different from his prior films.  2012 looks like more of the same.  I probably won't see it in theaters, but it could find its way to my DVD player.  Not sure if it would make it as a permanent part of my collection, but it might at least be a rental from Xbox Live.

Well, at least he's pretty honest in his trailers regarding what the movie is. I like that, and I know exactly what I go into, when I watch it...

After this guy had Jake G. head fake cold (successfully) in The Day After Bilbo Baggins Froze to Death, I have no hope for this one.  Based on the trailer, it looks like they're going to be spending most of their time outrunning waves in planes.  I might see it for the whole spectacle angle though.

I just realized, with all the land crumbling down and the water level rising, is this the prequel to Waterworld?

a small interview that includes a small clip of the movie.  I've also seen commercials for a group called IHC which is advertising for the movie, and the website it lists kinda gives away at what is causing all the mayhem.

Goddamnit! Mother Nature was robbed again! At least they didn't have them head-faking the fault line. Although, he should do that just to pay homage to the previous film. That would be hilarious!

As always, scientific accuracy is thrown completely out the window in favor of dramatic chaos and destruction.  Has Roland Emmerich ever taken a geology course or even seen the word "geology"?  Apparently the San Andreas Fault is not actually a transform fault (horizontal movement between tectonic plates with some uplift) but instead a ginormous void space beneath the earth's crust similar to the karst topography created by dissolution of soluble bedrock such as limestone or dolomite.  And so when 2012 hits we won't see the typical horizontal motion and tectonic uplift normally associated with transform faults, but instead the entire crust will simply crumble into a giant void.

I understand that films don't always have to be scientifically accurate, but if you're going to destroy an area of high tectonic activity, the least you can do is learn how a basic fucking transform fault works.  Crust doesn't just crumble away into nothingness.  At least The Day After Tomorrow had some elements of sound science.  Yes, head-faking cold was absolutely ridiculous, but there were elements of decent science used to explain climatic impacts due to ocean current disruptions.  Transform Fault != Karst Topography.   mad

What next?  Does the giant supervolcano beneath Yellowstone erupt and flood the area with acid?   disgust

I'll probably rent this for the special effects. Looks horrible though from a story standpoint. Would you REALLY want to survive an event like that? Where your life is so fundamentally destroyed and all that's left is the remnants of humanity living in the stone age? REALLY???

I've been considering seeing it, like you, for the special effects and cool destruction sequences, and I'm really curious to see if Emmerich attributes the destruction to something (whether it be Indiana IV aliens, Vanilla Sky cryogenic nonsense, etc), but I struggle to suspend disbelief and give the filmmakers the benefit of the doubt when they assume the audience to be stupid.  It's bad enough Michael Baysploomblow does this.  I already struggled to give Emmerich the car jumping out of the airplane, but now we have limos dodging falling cars, giant rolling doughnuts, and earthquakes that don't distort the land, but crumble it into an abyss.

I'm sure its something most people never even notice. Its probably especially jarring for someone like you Pete, who knows about Geology.

I mean, I never noticed the "in your face, the cold" scene until people mentioned it, but then - the first time I saw "Wargames" with mathew broderick I noticed the modem he used to get into the computer with was turned off and was all rolley eye :-)

This movie looks like one of the crappiest movies in ages. I can't stand disaster movies of this type, particularly since their idea of science has little to no basis in reality. I'm also annoyed that we're going to get months and months of hysteria from people who think this stuff could actually happen.

Having watched the scene with Cusack playing tag with the fault line, could the performances have been any more wooden?  The world is crumbling around them and they look like they're riding Earthquake or Jaws at Universal Studios, not trying to run for their lives.  The fault line gave a better performance.

No need to know geology. Just knowing about sinkholes and how they're created is fine. All I could think of when seeing the clip was, 'where the hell is the ground collapsing towards? Is all of California built on a giant sink hole?'

I find more jarring the fact that this family just watched, what, 2 million people DIE horrible deaths in front of their eyes, and they're all about the quips and hurry, hurry!  The progression in 'disaster films' has gone from amusing to disturbing.  At least in Knowing the disasters had an emotional impact on the characters.  I'd buy the movie more if they'd fall to pieces in hysterical despair and die, like everyone around them.
