WANT TO SEE
I've had so many dreams the last months about the world going under. Dont think it'll be any less watching this!
i particularly like the notion of St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican (that's what it's called right?) rolling around.
i'm sure i've seen a few film where world landmarks burst into flames while action hereoes and super models look on in awe as the wind ruffles their hair.
i wouldn't call it disaster porn though. at least, not in a pejorative way.
movies = spectacle, in one form or another, always.
what bigger spectacle could there be?
i reckon the first 45 minutes at least will be amazing. then john cusack will have been excluded from the list of people to go on the 'ark', but his wife will be on the list, and him and his wife and kid will face the odds as a family and triumph. in the meantime, various forces within the plan to ship people to preservative arks will have a change of heart and decide all people have the right to survive, and a whole shitload of people will and they'll make some kind of new life under some heroic leader.
but for the first 45 minutes, everything getting destroyed, in 3-D with those crazy new glasses, and on that international level, it's gonna be the spectacle of all time.
