Seth Rogen and frequent collaborator Evan Goldberg are making their directorial debuts with This is the End, an R-rated end-of-the-world comedy that stars Rogen (as himself) and a ton of his friends. Including, but not limited to: James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Michael Cera, Jason Segel, Emma Watson, Jay Baruchel and Jonah Hill.
It’s pretty much everyone playing themselves while reacting to an end of the world situation. It looks like a lot of fun, mostly because I’m a huge fan of McBride being able to be a dick to just about everyone on-screen at once, plus I’m also curious to see if Rogen has the chops to direct.
Comedies are all about editing and timing and you’d think that with Rogen being a comedy actor that he’d have what it takes to make the proper cuts and keep the film paced precisely, but it can get sort of tricky when wearing multiple hats.
So there’s a lot riding on this one.
Worse comes to worst it ends up not being as funny as this new April Fools Pineapple Express 2 trailer or this new red band trailer for the actual film.
Watch both below:
This is the End opens on June 14th, 2013.
