  • 2012 also booming in my country, maybe because of the special effect and the curiosity of doomsday 🙂

  • Those are the only reasons why I want to see it.

    I enjoyed 2012, the plot sucked, but the action was great.

  • Unfortunately this is becoming Emmerich's cinematic formula.

    Didn't realize it was the same producer, but the first thing that came to my mind was “I hope 2012 is not like the Day After Tomorrow” it was slightly better, but pretty much the same concept.

  • He directed both those films, Independence Day, Stargate, 10,000 BC, and Universal Soldier.
