Getting To Know You: In real life, we usually don't learn about the people who live through (and die in) natural disasters until after the disaster has unfolded. In movies like 2012, that chronology runs in reverse: Filmmakers introduce their characters (divorced dad John Cusack and daughter Morgan Lily, above), then put them through airborne escapes (below) and many other kinds of CGI hell.
