On the eve of what is considered to be our ultimate demise as a civilization, actor Seth Rogen decided to release a small teaser, followed by a red band trailer for his new film This Is The End, that caters to the apocalyptic end-of-days feel.
However, if the trailer is evidence enough, this will be a light-hearted comedic but also epic action film. If you’re not convinced then perhaps the cast, which features this generation’s best comics, will sell it for you. Last summer Rogen, who makes his directorial debut with partner Evan Goldberg, went hard to work in New Orleans to shoot This Is The End. The star-studded cast includes James Franco, Seth Rogen, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Rihanna, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride. Do we really need to go on?
If R&B star Rihanna seems a little out of place, the film’s premise kind of sets it straight. The film is centered around an end of the world party that James Franco throws at his house in Los Angeles . To celebrate, Franco decides to invite all of his friends for the party, but of course chaos ensues and the comedic group of actors face an utter doomsday situation as they try and save the world from ending.
This film can only end in two ways, it can either be one of the funniest apocalyptic films to ever grace the screen, or it can be herald as a disaster. One thing’s for certain, it’s pretty bold of the actors to portray skewed versions of themselves for the film. Who knows what will happen? If the world doesn’t end tomorrow then we’ll find out in the summer.
