This is the end. Hold your breath and count to ten…wait, wrong movie. Seth Rogen has been hard at work on his directorial debut with cohort Evan Goldberg and after numerous title changes, they’ve settled on This is The End and we’ve got the extensive, nearly three-minute first look today in the form of a hilarious red band trailer.
There are no character names here, as Rogen and his actual real life buddies — including Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Emma Watson, Danny McBride, Michael Cera, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Martin Starr, Rihanna, Aziz Ansari, Kevin Hart and many, many more — go to a party at James Franco‘s house. Unfortunately, the word begins to end and things get insane.
This timely trailer begins with an introduction between Rogen and Franco, before going into a single “the morning after” scene featuring some great dialogue between McBride and rest (including a perfect quip at Cera). Then we see some actual apocalypse-filled footage from the film. Check it out below, for what’s shaping up to be some of the most fun at the movies next summer — that is, if we survive past tomorrow.
The comedy This Is The End follows six friends trapped in a house after a series of strange and catastrophic events devastate Los Angeles. As the world unravels outside, dwindling supplies and cabin fever threaten to tear apart the friendships inside. Eventually, they are forced to leave the house, facing their fate and the true meaning of friendship and redemption.
This Is The End opens on June 14th, 2013.

What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
