Seth Rogen and frequent writing partner Evan Goldberg have been working on a little project called The End of the World. The two wrote and directed the feature, which stars Rogen and all of his friends playing themselves in an end-of-the-world comedy.
Jason Segel, Paul Rudd, Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Emma Watson, Michael Cera and Danny McBride are just a few of the names that will appear in some fashion.
To celebrate the whole Mayan end-of-the-world thing for tomorrow, Rogen and friends have released this new red band trailer and a name change (This Is the End).
The clip honestly works a lot more than I thought it would. The intro is kind of corny and the opening seconds almost lose you, but as soon as the entire gang gathers around the table things instantly start to connect. I love that McBride seems to be taking charge of the conversation, cracking jokes about Franco and Cera at will.
This could be really really good or a massive inside-joke that doesn’t work for an audience.
Check out the red band trailer below:
This Is the End opens on June 14th, 2013.
