This movie is by [[Creator/RolandEmmerich the same guy]] who did ''Film/IndependenceDay'' and ''TheDayAfterTomorrow.'' There's probably a pattern here.

At the time of the film's release, WordOfGod stated that this was his final disaster flick, so [[UpToEleven he tried as best as he could]] to pack enough StuffBlowingUp and MonumentalDamage into it to last a lifetime.

[[caption-width-right:350:[-This can't possibly end well.-] ]]

''2012'' is a movie based on the prediction that the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt world would end]] on [[MayanDoomsday December 21st, 2012]]. This prediction is itself based on the fact that the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar rolls over somewhere in the vicinity of 2012-12-21, in much the same way that [[MillenniumBug the Gregorian calendar rolled over on 2000-01-01]]. It mainly follows Jackson Curtis (Creator/JohnCusack), a struggling, divorced chauffeur, attempting to survive the apocalypse with his family. The one thing that keeps him and his family alive are rumors of 'Arks' built by the world governments to keep what they can safe.

** The sinking of California by a 10.9 earthquake causing the Earth crust displacement has so much wrong ridden all over it that it doesn't even ''try'' to stray away from this trope.

* ArtisticLicenseGeology: Most of the film operates under this, particularly the depiction the eruption of the Yellowstone Supervolcano. Except for Gordon, who raises his hand very calmly to his eyes in reaction to the brightness, the other protagonist's barely react to the eruption and come out completely unscathed. No-one [[SteelEarDrums goes deaf]] from the sound of the eruption, while the shockwave throws Charlie a couple of feet backwards, despite the trees all around him being uprooted in their thousands. Finally the pyroclastic flow slows down to let the plane time to escape unharmed, while ignoring [[ConvectionSchmonvection convection]] not to boil them alive and after emerging from the ash cloud, the plane [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking isn't even dirty]].

* TheArk: Nine of them, in fact. Though only four of them were completed in time, and one was critically damaged before it could be launched.

** BritishRoyalFamily: a quick shot as they are loading the Arks shows an elderly well-dressed woman in a purple coat with Corgis, undoubtedly Queen Elizabeth II (and her family.)
