The Apocalypse should be more fun than this

I’m watching the preview to The Day after Tomorrow, and I think the promotions staff made a huge mistake by having a ten-minute preview of this drivel. It comes across as uncompelling in every way; the only reason even to think about seeing this tripe in a theater is for the special effects, but even those are uninteresting.

The studio has been promoting this thing as “from the director of Independence Day,” but they’ve got the wrong film from his résumé. The Day after Tomorrow reeks more of Godzilla.

But an even more puzzling question than “How did this get made?” is “Why did Ian Holm sign on?”
