Thandie Newton AND Amanda Peet together in the same movie? Wow, this must really be a sign of the apocalypse… doubly fitting since the movie in question is 2012, a disaster in the making.
No pun intended, but probably necessary.
Basically, in the not too distant future most of us are going to get killed. And almost no one will see it coming because the only people who actually know about it are generally regarded as a collection of loons and goobers. You know the type I’m talking about– real tinfoil hat types.
When even the movie trailer will ask the question: how would the government prepare 6 billion people for the end of the world? then immediately follows it up with the answer: they wouldn’t, you know you’re in for a good old-fashioned dose of antigovernment paranoia. And indeed, the aforementioned trailer looks pretty sweet, even if it does remind me of The Day After Tomorrow. So at the end of the day, I’m looking forward to this one. If for no other reason than to see how badly they botched it.
