The Day After a Couple Of Years From Now



Well, destroying the White House worked great for the marketing of Independence Day. And a giant wave worked as part of the marketing for The Day After Tomorrow. So why not have a giant wave that destroys the White House? That’s got to double the profits, right?

These posters for 2012 are pretty similar to the equally polished disaster posters for The Day After Tomorrow. And why wouldn’t they be? The premise is very similar, and this sell managed to open TDAT to a pretty nice sum. Why change something that is not (as far as we know) broken?

I do appreciate that the Liberty Statue hasn’t been destroyed again in these. Poor lady had enough disasters for a several lifetimes.

    Good point about Lady Liberty – why she is always considered the most important landmark in the world, I don’t know.

    None of these movies ever go after the Eiffel Tower, or Rome, or anywhere in Africa or Asia.

    There are some interesting points on this article but I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There may be some validity but I will take hold an opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we wish more! Added to FeedBurner as well.
