German director Roland Emmerich has a real hard-on for destroying the world. It seems every couple of years he brings out a new movie where he gets to destroy shit.
He's directed Independence Day, Godzilla, The Day After Tomorrow and now, 2012. 2012 is about a "global cataclysm that occurs leading to the end of the world." Amazingly, Emmerich's last film, 10,000 BC, which was a box office cataclysm, didn't lead to the end of Emmerich's career.
The above clip is a five minute sneak peek, that debuted yesterday, of the film. The scene shows John Cusack desperately trying to get his children to safety as California is about to cease to be. The clip, like Emmerich's films, requires you to shut your brain off and simply watch the carnage and destruction. It looks idiotic, fantastic, absurd and amazing.
