2012: Science Or Superstition is a documentary that tackles Mayan doomsday by referring to scientists and researchers whove been studying the apocalyptic possibility of 2012 for decades.
Instead of bombarding viewers with scary, catastrophic scenarios, producer Gary Baddeley says the film takes a more calm, rational stance on the subject.
And it turns out 2012 may be nothing but apocalyptic hype.
Baddeley says the biggest misconception about the Mayan calendar prediction is that it foreshadows the absolute end of the world.
According to various experts in his film, the Mayans never said 2012 would be the end of time, but rather the end of a phase on Earth, and the rebirth of a new one.
In fact, they wrote many predictions beyond December 21, 2012, implying that they thought the world would still be around.
Though strange physical phenomena may occur in 2012, Baddeley says most experts remain optimistic about the outcome of the dreaded day.
2012 comes out on DVD January 27.
