Sony could not have timed this better! As we all prepare for the Mayan’s prediction of the end of the world today (yikes!), Sony have released their first red band trailer for a new comedy written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
The film see’s a terrific collection of comedy actors coming together to play themselves in a film about the end of the world. The cast are all trapped in a house together, and as the world apparently ends outside, they have to deal with the consequences of surviving, while clearly having a bit of a dig at each others careers.
The first clip, which eventually becomes the red band trailer, is very funny and features some very impressive comedic writing. All the cast appear to be having a great time with this, with Danny McBride especially enjoying himself. Having such a great collection of comedy actors in one film could be an epic success, or based on this years The Watch, an epic failure. Judging by the footage below, This Is The End should hopefully work!
Written and directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the impressive cast includes Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Jay Baruchel, Emma Watson, Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Michael Cera, Martin Starr and David Krumholtz.
This is the End arrives in UK cinemas 28th June 2013.
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.
