I also thought after seeing this trailer [during some award show] that all the hype for a year or two was ‘all about nothing’. Conspiracy buffs were salivating over this flick as it was supposed to confirm there theories twenty times over.
After checking out this CGI mess and you guys will have to go back to drawing board if you think this movie will further your cause. This movie drops/flops in the ether.

In a new two-minute trailer of 2012, directed by Roland Emmerich – the man behind Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow, mankind is seen to fight for survival after a prophecy about about an apocalypse.
But as with all apocalyptic movies, there are a lucky few who survive the terror… after Americans appear to be save the day (yet again).
It looks, however, as if the CGI experts have been given a completely free hand designing this apocalypse – with the net result that the trailer borders on laughable.
Critics in the U.S. are already beginning to describe the movie as a disaster in itself.
The OTT effects and over-dramatic story has come in for some criticism even before the film hits the big screen.
If the trailer is anything to go by, we’re likely to see every kind of disaster imaginable, all crammed into one big turkey of a film created by a director reknowned for his overboard use of effects.
One critic says of the trailer: ‘The 2012 The Worst is Over Movie Clip that recently found its way online is full of the absurd action and grand special effects audiences have come to expect from a Roland Emmerich film.
”At the beginning of the clip we are given a glimpse of the Curtis’ family dynamic present in 2012. As the clip continues, the delivered action is so over-the-top it is almost looks like an cartoon.’
