Sony has released a new batch of character posters for writer/directors Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen’s apocalypse comedy This Is The End. The film is the directional debut of the two writing partners, who wrote Superbad, Pineapple Express and Da Ali G Show.
The plot centers around six friends (Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Craig Robinson and Danny McBride playing embellished versions of their public personas) trapped in Franco’s house as a series of strange and apocalyptic events decimate Los Angeles.
The film is based on a 2007 short film starring Rogen and Baruchel called Jay and Seth versus the Apocalypse.
The supporting cast includes Jason Segel, Michael Cera, Kevin Hart, Aziz Ansari, Emma Watson, David Krumholtz, Paul Rudd, Martin Starr, Mindy Kaling, Kevin Hart and Rihanna.
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.
