If you’re worried that the world is going to end tomorrow, you’re not alone. Seth Rogen is a bit upset because if the world does end, audiences won’t be able to see his directorial film debut for the movie ‘This is the End’ (formally called ‘The End of the World’). So what’s a does the director and one of the stars of the film do? Make a red band trailer to show to everyone before the earth perishes in cataclysmic glory.
The video for ‘This is the End’ is very apropos and very funny – but be warned! It is the red band version of the trailer. According to the official synopsis, ‘This is the End’ is basically about a wild party that James Franco is throwing. He and five other friends become trapped in the 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.”
Trapped with Franco are Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel, Craig Robinson and Seth Rogan who are all playing themselves. Since they are in Hollywood, there will be a massive array of cameos from other celebrities like Martin Starr (‘Freaks and Geeks,’ ‘Superbad’), Mindy Kaling (‘The Mindy Project,’ ‘The Office’), Jason Segel (‘How I Met Your Mother,’ ‘Gulliver’s Travels’), Emma Watson (‘Harry Potter’ movies), and Paul Rudd (‘This is 40,’ ‘Knocked Up’) as the friends try to survive the apocalypse.
It’s too bad we’ll have to wait until summer for the film to be released, but until then, see how Hollywood deals with the end of the world in the trailer below!
‘This is the End’ will hit theaters on June 14, 2013… that is, if we all don’t perish tomorrow!
