Roland Emmerich, the special effects monster who’s already caused massive destruction with Independence Day, the failed Godzilla reboot, and The Day After Tomorrow, has finally gone for broke, saying, “Fuck the isolated incidents; I’m just gonna eviscerate the entire globe,” with 2012. The cast is full of great actors cashing shamelessly casting large paychecks (John Cusack, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, Woody Harrelson) who all give the film tons of magnetism, and now there’s this 5-minute clip that pretty much exceeds any expectations. All that 2012 need be is CGI-overload and silly dialogue, and this clip is essentially those two elements blended together and then injected with a truck-ful of anabolic substances. It’s literally five-plus minutes of exaggerated anarchy, completely batshit screwy and just begging to be enjoyed on a big screen.
I tend to be as high-horse-y as the next true cinephile, but even I can’t deny that this is downright awesome. Check it for yourselves:
