2012 posters

08.27.2009

Are you pumped for Roland Emmerich's disaster porn opus 2012? Yeah, I can't really say I am either, but as a purely visual exercise I expect it to be spectacular. I’m going to just try and ignore all the parts with humans talking instead of getting sucked up by earthquakes and hit with battleships.

As a preview of the kind of carnage you can expect, three new posters for the film have popped up on Yahoo! They show locations you know and love getting wrecked by floods, earthquakes and the aforementioned battleships. If I were to die in such a scenario, I think that I’d want to be crushed by the giant stone head of Jesus. That way when I went up to be judged in heaven, I could say “Hey man, you owe me one.”

Click on the posters below to head over to Yahoo! for some bigger versions.

Extra Tidbit: 2012 is just Roland Emmerich embracing what he's always wanted to do: destroy the world. It's like Michael Bay making a movie that was nothing but explosions and naked supermodels.

Just look at the second poster...

...it's art!
I'm going to see the movie, but even if 2012 will be bad, this poster is amazing! Nice colors and a shocking visual.
After this poster, I don't think I'll be interested in any other disaster movie...

Rejected Art

These just look like unused posters for The Day After Tomorrow. I mean, aren't most artists worried about being pigeon-holed? How can Emmerich have a career just churning out movies about the destruction of the world..?

Roland Emmerich sucks as a director and writer. Can't he just leave us be?

Does it bother anyone else that the giant wave destroying the White House is coming in from the west? The Atlantic Ocean is in the opposite direction. Unless it's coming from a nearby river... Aw hell, it's a Roland Emmerich film. Why even ask? Looks awesome though.

Sweet Crumbling Jesus!

I'm very fond of "disaster cheese", and this looks like the Velveeta of them all. :)

Great posters, especially the second one! Trailers look great. Looks like a fun popcorn movie where you dont have to expect too much storytelling.

They should add a subtitle, something like

2012: The Independence Day After the Day After Tomorrow

Love seeing an aircraft carrier being washed onto the white house. This could be a pretty good flick.

When you're about to get squashed by a Jesus statue...

I wonder if your last words are "Christ, I've been worshiping the wrong God!"

And you Gay point is?
C'mon, this will be fun. Why? because you expect it to be silly. So in the end you are not disappointed. Let's be honest, how many found the 2012 trailer more fun to watch then Avatar?
