Two weeks shy of its theatrical debut in the U.S., "2012 (2009)" went to downtown Los Angeles for its premiere. On Tuesday, November 3, black carpet was rolled out and a scene of destruction complete with a car crashing through a wall was built up in front of Regal Cinemas LA Live to greet the oncoming celebrities.
Many of the cast members were seen joining the festivity on the special evening. Amanda Peet, John Cusack, Thandie Newton, Woody Harrelson, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Oliver Platt and Danny Glover were only some of them spotted. Two of its young actors, Liam James and Morgan Lily who played Noah and Lilly Curtis, were present as well.
The man behind the global disaster movie, director/produce/writer Roland Emmerich, also didn't miss out the special screening. He came in accompanied by his producer sister Ute Emmerich. Additionally, season 8 runner-up of "American Idol" as well as the singer of the lead single off the film's soundtrack, Adam Lambert, was also making an appearance at the black carpet.
A handful of celebrity guests was also captured attending the premiere. Among them were Camilla Belle, Lauren Graham, Dania Ramirez, Sofia Vergara, George Hamilton, Mickey Rooney, Estella Warren, Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, Vail Bloom, and Jason Biggs and his actress wife Jenny Mollen.
Interlacing the prophecy in Mayan calendar with natural disasters, "2012" presents an epic adventure about a global cataclysm leading to the end of the world. Despite its end-of-the-world tone, this disaster movie will focus more on the heroic struggle of the survivors. It will open wide in theaters across the U.S. next Friday on November 13.
