When they tell you not to panic, that’s when you run. I’m almost certain that we’ll all be running when Roland Emmerich’s latest film, the über-apocalyptic thriller 2012 hits theaters. Then again, I’ve always had a soft spot for the destruction of the world, the death of humanity and all-around mayhem. Yet while this film seems to be filled with all of that, I’m not exactly sure I buy the concept of John Cusack outrunning the fall of California into the ocean in a limo. Just a thought…

This new trailer — which hit YouTube late last night — shows much of the same footage as the previously released five minute extended clip (via Fancast), with some added carnage right at the end. I can’t say that I’m expecting a whole lot from Emmerich that we haven’t seen before, but I am looking forward to a visual feast of destruction. At the very least, I think we can all hope for a movie with solid pacing, as some of Emmerich’s world-destroying past works have been rather boring.

2012 is in theaters November 13, 2009.
