Roland Emmerich makes the same movie.. again.

Watching the tralier for the new movie from the director of Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow I couldn’t help but notice the parallels between, well, all of these movies. The concept of humans trying to live through the end of time, and fighting against fate and all that. And top it off with some great big explosions, a little bit of a love story, some suspense, and it’s all there.

You can tell just from watching the preview–John Cusack comes in off the bench to take the place of Dennis Quaid and you sub climate change for the Mayan calendar’s apocolyptic prediction (both of which are controversial social issues, obviously) and you have a brand new movie.

So, needless to say, I’m very excited to spend 8 dollars to watch the same thing I watched four or five years ago. Just pre-ordered my tickets, actually.
