Trailer



Plot

A global cataclysm occurs which leads to the end of the world and has survivors struggling for their lives, while a US government agency called the "Institute for Human Continuity" attempts to use ships to ensure the survival of the human race.

The movie is inspired by several hypotheses that state that the ancient Mayan predicted a Doomsday (3 walls) event will occur sometime around the 2012 northern hemisphere winter solstice.

Cast

  • John Cusack as Jackson Curtis, a science fiction book writer who occasionally works as a limousine driver.
  • Amanda Peet (6 walls) as Kate, Jackson's ex-wife.
  • Thandie Newton as Laura Wilson, the First Daughter.
  • Oliver Platt as Carl Anheuser, the President's Chief of Staff.
  • Chiwetel Ejiofor as Adrian Helmsley, scientific advisor to the President.
  • Danny Glover as President Wilson, the President of the United States.
  • Woody Harrelson as Charlie Frost, a man who prophesies the end of the world and is considered crazy by others. Alex Jones claimed in an interview with Eric "Mancow" Muller that Harrelson told him that Frost's character was based on him. Harrelson compared his character to the mythological Greek figure Cassandra, whose predictions were dismissed.
  • Ng Chin Han as Lin Pang, a worker in Tibet.
  • Thomas McCarthy as Gordon, Kate's current boyfriend and a plastic surgeon.
  • Liam James as Noah Curtis, Jackson and Kate's son.
  • Morgan Lily as Lilly Curtis, Jackson and Kate's daughter.

Production

Director Roland Emmerich and composer-producer Harald Kloser co-wrote a spec script titled 2012, which was marketed to major studios in Feb. 2008 (12 years ago). Nearly all studios met with Emmerich and his representatives to hear the director's budget projection and story plans, a process that the director had previously gone through with the movies Independence Day (1996, 24 years ago) and The Day After Tomorrow (8 walls) (2004, 16 years ago). The movie was shopped around with a production budget of $200 million. Later that month, Sony pictures (wallpaper) Entertainment won the rights for the spec script, planning to distribute it under Columbia Pictures. The studio planned to make the movie for less than the estimated budget.

Filming was originally scheduled to begin in Los Angeles, California, in Jul. 2008 (12 years ago), but instead commenced in Vancouver in Aug. 2008 (12 years ago) and concluded in dec. 2008 (12 years ago). Due to the possible 2008 (12 years ago) Screen Actors Guild strike, filmmakers set up a contingency plan for salvaging the film. Sony pictures (wallpaper) Imageworks was hired to create visual effects for 2012 (8 years ago). Thomas Wander co-wrote the score with Harald Kloser.

Release

2012 was originally scheduled to be released on Jul. 10, 2009 (11 years ago). The release date was changed to Nov. 13, 2009 (11 years ago) to move out of the busy summer schedule into a time frame that the studio considered to have more potential for financial success. According to the studio, the movie could have been completed for the summer release date, but the date change will give more time to the production.
