Showcase Movie – 2012

This is a showcase of the upcoming movie "2012".
As a general rule, I do not find out too much about the storyline of an upcoming movie just so that I can keep myself surprised and amused as the plot unfolds when I go watch the movie. And even if I should know any details about the story, whenever I showcase a movie to someone I will not reveal anything more than what had already been presented in the movie’s posters and trailers. It would be very rude of me if I should spoil the movie to anyone who has been looking forward to watching it. Therefore, as you can surmise, 2012 is most probably some sort of disaster movie, with huge ocean waves crashing into major cities and destroying many famous landmarks. In fact, the trailer for 2012 shows giant tsunamis that exceed even the heights of the Himalayan Mountains, with a Tibetan monastery facing imminent destruction.
Most likely, the movie is set in the year 2012, the year in which the end of the world is predicted by some to occur. It is said that the ancient Mayan calender will come to an end sometime in December 2012, coinciding with the end of the world. Even more recently, a set of medieval pictograms attributed to the famous astrologer Nostradamus is said to predict the end of the world as occuring in 2012, when (as the pictograms suggest) the motion of the sun across the sky coincides with the position of galactic axis as seen from the Earth. Certain other doomsday theories also predict some sort of cataclysmic or transformative event as going to happen in 2012, ranging from planet collision, black hole alignment, geomagnetic reversal, or even a spontaneous shifting of global consciousness.
It should be said that most of the above theories about the end of the world as we know it in 2012 have little or no scientific standing, while the incessant sensationalism of pending apocalypse in 2012 by the media in the forms of documentaries and movies, can only serve to make a nearly-baseless prediction sound more and more like a matter of fact. So, I believe that the movie 2012 would no doubt be capitalising on people’s interests in the end of the world by presenting a vision of what is to come. And I myself am looking forward to watching 2012 when it opens here next week, to see what is going to happen in the near future, at least, according to the script of the writers, and the movie’s special effects.
2012, coming soon…
