Trailer: 2012

Apocalypse holy shit! Is this not being released in 2012 because Roland Emmerich actually believes that the world will end then and no one will get to see the movie? Is that Danny Glover I spotted as the president? Hollywood's black president in disaster movie obsession doesn't seem so far-fetched any more, does it?
