This Is The End is by far one of the most anticipated films hitting the big screen next year, marking the directorial debuts of co-writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Pineapple Express, Superbad).
Previously titled The Apocalypse, Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse, and The End of the World, the film has officially been re-titled once more to This Is The End, and now Yahoo Movies have debuted the first red-band clip and poster for us.
“Six friends are 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.”
Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel lead the immense cast, joined by Jonah Hill, James Franco, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson in the leading sextet, with cameos expected from the likes of Emma Watson, Michael Cera, Jason Segel, Aziz Ansari, Martin Starr, David Krumholtz, Kevin Hart, and Rihanna.
Rogen and Goldberg are directing from a script they co-wrote, based on an original story by Goldberg and Jason Stone, with whom the duo worked together on the original short, Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse.
Essentially, this is going to be amazing.
This Is The End is due to hit US theatres on 14th June, 2013, with its UK release date set for 28th June. I can’t wait. Here’s the brilliant first clip and poster. And remember, this is red-band, so entirely inappropriate for work. Enjoy.
