New 2012 trailer online

2012-Still.jpgThere's a slightly different cut of the 2012 trailer online, showing more effects and devastation. It's a cool cut, nothing amazing about it as we've seen most of it before, but it does offer a few extra angles and shots.

I'm looking forward to this film for one reason, the effects. I expect to go “ooh” and “aah” at it and maybe have a giggle at the daftness of it and the script. I don't expect any more. My Dad always says keep your expectations low and you'll never be disappointed. I'm applying it in this case.

You can see the new trailer below and build yourself up for more devastation. I'm glad of two things in this one though, one is that they don't claim the Mayan calendar has scientific proof behind it - other than it was their calendar, it worked, and it stopped.

Also that it stops saying they predicted the end of the world, all they did was write a calendar that stopped way, way into the future. So far they didn't think about it and that they'd have to change at some point.

We've had to adjust our measurement of time, does that mean the whole universe was going to shift around us? Come now, the days of the Earth being the centre of the Universe are long gone.

A fun end of the world film, and I feel fine. Here's the 2012 trailer.



Over 1,000 years ago, the Classical Maya in Central America looked toward the year 2012 as a time of great change and a shift in World Ages. As we approach that date, it appears they may have been right. Humanity faces a dire ecological crisis due to our reckless activity. Hollywood and the popular media link the end of the Mayan Calendar to chaos, cataclysm, and mass death. Is a bleak ending inevitable, or can we co-create a different outcome?

2012: Time for Change projects a radical alternative to apocalyptic doom and gloom. Directed by Emmy Award nominee Joao Amorim, the film follows journalist Daniel Pinchbeck, author of the bestselling 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, on a quest for a new paradigm that integrates the archaic wisdom of tribal cultures with the scientific method. As conscious agents of evolution, we can redesign post-industrial society on ecological principles to make a world that works for all. Rather than breakdown and barbarism, 2012 will herald the birth of a regenerative planetary culture, where collaboration replaces competition, where exploration of psyche and spirit becomes the new cutting edge, replacing the sterile materialism that has pushed our world to the brink.

You are taking what a film script built around phenomenal special effects for something to found your knowledge of the 2012 phenomenon on? Something is going to happen and much catastrophe is coming. Learn now so you can prepare to survive the 2012 era as we arrive at the end of the current age of man.
