Granted there has been one too many films about the apocalypse and the fact that said events that were supposed to occur in December 21, 2012 never happened, we could probably use less of films whose plot centers on the end of the world. Luckily there are two films that will have comedic takes on end of the world situation: The World’s End directed by Edgar Wright and This Is The End written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The former film will hit theaters later this year, but it’s This Is The End we should be getting prepared for.
A new red-band trailer for the film has appeared, and it shows a lot more stars, cameos, deaths, and other drug-induced antics. Check it out here below.
Cabin fever meets the pending apocalypse as the upcoming comedy This Is The End rounded out the three films showcased by Sony Pictures on their mid-afternoon panel on Saturday at WonderCon 2013 in Anaheim, CA, held in the large and sprawling packed to the rafters Arena.
Starring the ever sloppily unkempt but hilariously endearing Seth Rogen, along with his writing partner Evan Goldberg (they both directed the film) and with Danny Mcbride and Craig Robinson, This Is The End shows six friends (who all play themselves and including James Franco and Jonah Hill) trapped in a large dwelling (Franco’s house at a party) after a series of cataclysmic events decimates much of Los Angeles. The fallout from the events sort of takes the narrative to akin to an urban, zany Lord of the Flies, as the relationships feel the strain from the dearth of supplies and being trapped with one another. Eventually the friends are forced to leave the house and have to deal with the new way of life, which is now manifested on purely survival, which eventually draws them every so closer, albeit kookily so.
In just a matter of hours, depending on what part of the world you live on of course, the world will come to an end. So Seth Rogen found it appropriate to release first trailer/clip for his new end of the world comedy This is the End, formally known as Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse. Rogen along with fellow co-star James Franco introduce the footage from the film in true vulgar fashion.
Let’s just say it involves weed, lewd acts, and sex toys. Of course there is much more to see. Continue below to see the first trailer or clip for This is the End.
