UPDATED 7/7/09 4:27 p.m.

From Drew McWeeney comes word (sound and picture too!) of The Greatest (Fake) Trailer Ever Made, for Roland Emmerich's upcoming destruct-a-thon orgasm 2012. (What would the movies do without the near future, guaranteeing us all smug peals of laughter when (if) we watch the movie in, say, the year 2013?)

Whew! Drew thinks the guy who made this trailer may have guaranteed the studio an even bigger opening weekend, and he might be right. One thing I know he's right about, though-- if I felt like this was the movie Emmerich made, without all the ponderous people stuff in between, why, even I'd go see that! The whole thing reminds me of a little Japanese film released here in 1975 and starring Lorne Greene... Yes, how far we've come.


UPDATE! While we're on the subject of trailers, Salon's Andrew O'Hehir brought this one to our attention this afternoon. The name Diablo Cody is central, so of course the parody here is intentional, but just as long as nobody invokes the "J" word to describe this one (not in the ad copy, but in the reviews, as in "It's J--- meets Let the Right One In!") then I could be convinced to line up for Jennifer's Body... Anyone for the drive-in in early September?

I love the music, especially when the plane action kicks into high gear!

Just insanely hilarious... It should've ended with the title card, "A Quinn/Martin Production"

Funny, I was thinking something like one.

Irwin Allen's Production of...
