Never before has a date in history been so important to so many cultures, religions, scientists, and governments. '2012' is an epic (2.5-hour) adventure about a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world, and tells of the struggle of the survivors.

Starring John Cusack as Jackson Curtis and Amanda Peet as his ex-wife Kate Curtis, the movie is chock-full of explosions, disasters, and destruction. There are arguments about how and when the governments of the world will alert their fellow citizens, and discussions begin about how the remaining survivors will be selected to survive Armageddon, but when they discover that the global cataclysm is happening much faster than expected, they must race to specially-made ships to save the human race before all is lost.
