Disaster film shares world premiere

DISASTER film "2012" will premiere in Shanghai next Friday with a simultaneous global screening.

Cinemas have high expectations for the film's box office performance, as its storyline and compelling visual effects update the popular 2004 hit "The Day After Tomorrow."

Directed by Roland Emmerich, the film stars John Cusack and Amanda Peet.

"The hit 'The Day After Tomorrow' grossed more than US$500 million internationally," said Wu Hehu, deputy director of Shanghai United Cinema Lines, the city's largest cinema chain. "The film has also generated many loyal Chinese fans for the disaster film genre, who won't miss Emmerich's latest effort."

Zhou Qiong, a manager from Stellar Cinema City, said it plans to offer more screenings after many inquiries.

In addition to depicting the "end of the world," the film includes scenes of Chinese people intended to pay tribute to the spirit of mankind after the Sichuan earthquake last May.
