A new poster and art for the world-destroying film "2012" is here. The oceans erupting seems to be the major disaster going on in the film, and here's Mr. John Cusack dealing with what will probably be just one of many watery disasters.
We've seen the action of the poor monk ringing the alarm in the trailer, but the poster gives that image even more weight. Here's a look at it before it's pasted onto a bus stop near you.
While down in Comic-Con this year, I received a mysterious package at my hotel. I had no idea that anyone even knew about the no-budget place where I was staying, much less would contact me with anonymous envelopes.
It contained a thick, clear plastic ID card with my picture on it, a thumbprint, my name and my cellphone number! Kind of freaked me out, but then that's what the promos for "2012" do to a lot of people. The scale of destruction is massive, as are the covert ways of marketing the film.
Now comes word of another campaign that will result in a trip to the Mayan ruins in Cancun. Basically, contestants will register, take skill-based tests, submit proposals to become the next leader of the post-apocalyptic world, then campaign to see who wins. There will obviously be lots of competition, but the winner gets the honorary title Leader of the Post-2012 World, while the top 12 candidates will receive a PlayStation 3 and Sony Webbie HD Camera. Get more info here. And, no, it doesn't say whether you get a plaque, or a nameplate for your post-apocalyptic desk. That'd be nice.
