Sony has released a new trailer for the directing debut of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, This is the End. The film is set at a party at James Franco’s house and centers around six friends (Rogen, Franco, Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel, Craig Robinson and Jonah Hill) trapped during the apocalypse.
The actors play themselves in the film and that’s a fun enough gag to get me into the theater. I’ve enjoyed the work of all of these guys, who can be connected in some way to most of great comedy films of the last 10 years. Their humor is perfectly suited for an apocalypse comedy and it looks like they had a blast making it.
The supporting cast also includes Jason Segel, Michael Cera, Emma Watson, Paul Rudd, Mindy Kaling, Kevin Hart, Martin Starr, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Rihanna… waaaaa?
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.
