'2012' End of Times Movie Makes Millions

Ad Feedback

The new film 2012 hit the box office with a bang this weekend, raking in $225 million worldwide.

The Hollywood blockbuster predicts the end of the world will come December 21, 2012 and the movie is not without controversy.

It focuses on a widely accepted theory based on the Mayan calendar -- which comes to an end on that day.

The film is Hollywood's latest wild ride into the mystery of when and how the world will end.

For more on the controversial film, CBN News spoke with Bob Waliszewski of Focus on the Family's PluggedIn.com -- a family-friendly movie review site. Click play for his comments.

What happens in the film is the buzz on the street and on the red carpet -- where even the stars entertain questions about the world ending on 12/21/2012.

The man behind the film also directed Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow -- also movies surrounding "doomsday."

Some point out that the film depicts the destruction of historic symbols of Christianity, like the Sistine Chapel, Saint Peter's Basilica and the statue of Christ the Redeemer overlooking Rio de Janeiro.
