Plot: An epic adventure about a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors. Fast Facts: In 2009, American geologist Adrian Helmsley (Chiwetel Ejiofor) travels to India to meet his friend Satnam, who has discovered that neutrinos from a massive solar flare have penetrated the Earth and are causing the temperature of its core to increase rapidly. Adrian returns to Washington D.C. to inform White House Chief of Staff Carl Anheuser (Oliver Platt) and US President Thomas Wilson (Danny Glover) that this will instigate a chain of events that will bring about the end of the world. At the 36th G8 summit in 2010, other heads of state and heads of government are made aware of the situation. They collaborate to begin a secret project intended to ensure the continuity of human life, strategically choosing 400,000 people for admission on a series of gigantic arks to be constructed in the Himalayas. To help fund the venture, additional individuals are allowed to purchase tickets for one billion euros apiece.

Tagline: We Were Warned. Who will be left behind? The end is just the beginning.

Slide 5: 

Quotes: Carl Anheuser: [about Laura Wilson] Cute girl, eh? Adrian Helmsley: What are you talking about? Carl Anheuser: That was the First Daughter you were staring at. Adrian Helmsley: What? I wasn't staring at her. Carl Anheuser: Better make a move fast. The end is near. This escene happens when Adrian went to the President’s office to tell him that the cataclysm is happening. Goofs: Revealing mistakes: When Jackson shows his driver's license in Yellowstone Park, his name appears on the card as "Jackson, Curtis." It should be either "Curtis, Jackson" (Last name, First name) or be written without the comma.Plot holes: The Antonov in which the main characters flee to China crashes because of empty fuel-tanks. But the explosion when it finally hits the ground after falling of the cliff indicates a large amount of fuel left.
