Forget about Nostradamus and those pesky Mayans. Really forget about that clunker of a movie called 2012 that invovled arks in the Himalayas. Here is definitative proof the world will end in 2012. I will even give you an exact date - February 10th, 2012.
How can I be so sure? On that date George Lucas will give unto the insolent and ungrateful Star Wars masses the first movie in the Star Wars franchise to be converted into 3D. Will it be A New Hope? Nope? Get your motion-sickness bags ready. Ready? Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace. So now we will experience Jar Jar Binks in three dimensions. Yes you can get up and run to the loo clutching that bag now. George give it up, even in three dimensions Jar Jar is totally flat.
So book your seat with a certain smuggler who can do the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs now. Avoid the rush, get a choice seat, and avoid the smuggling compartments.
