Roland Emmerich's disaster epic 2012 is still over a month away from release, but tonight you can get a two-minute sneak peek of the film, and it's coming to pretty much every channel on television. Between 10:50 and 11:00 PM (ET & PT) tonight (October 1), Sony Pictures will be rolling out a massive "roadblock" for 2012 that will appear on almost every network across North America, giving viewers a whole scene from the film to get them interested in the upcoming release.
