I can absolutely see how Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, the makers of “This is the End” got a bunch of big-name celebrities to show up, essentially to do wacky things before getting killed off in gruesome ways. I suspect it started off with a half dozen famous guys, then that became a dozen, and before you know it, every famous young actor/actress in Hollywood is begging to be in this thing. Or at least, that’s how I explain Emma Watson showing up as an ax-wielding maniac. I mean, how else does that happen?
Anyways, check out a new Red Band trailer for “This is the End”, which is about the end of the world as we know it. The film follows a bunch of famous actors playing themselves. Then a bunch of meta shit happens.
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.
Starring an assload of famous people, including but not limited to James Franco, Emma Watson, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Michael Cera, Jay Baruchel, Mindy Kaling, Kevin Hart, Martin Starr, Aziz Ansari, Rihanna, Danny McBride and David Krumholtz.
The world ends (famously) this June 14, 2013.
