This Is The End Redband Trailer Invites You To Share The Apocalypse With Seth Rogen And James Franco
So, as we all know, it’s the end of the world tomorrow. I imagine many of you are spending the day in much the same way I have been: making sure I have plenty of Glade PlugIns for the bunker, baiting my zombie traps, and compiling the list of enemies I will kill after the collapse of the social contract. But even though we are all most certainly doomed, the impending destruction of the world and everything we know poses lots of different problems to lots of different people. Consider the plight of Seth Rogen and James Franco, who are starring in a movie about this very subject. Unfortunately, This Is the End isn’t scheduled to arrive in theaters until June, by which point the few remaining movie theaters will have long since been converted into cannibal rape dungeons by various bands of marauders and scallywags.
What’s a well-known Hollywood actor to do in such a situation? Well, how about make a trailer for the movie that you can release today, of course. That way at least the audience can see some of your hard work before the rogue planet Nibiru sideswipes us, When Worlds Collide-style. Fair warning: the redband trailer has some naughty language in it. Which seems to be a silly thing to still be worrying about, what with our oncoming mutual demise at the hands of organ-harvesting gray aliens.

Originally titled The End of the World, This Is the End stars Seth Rogen, James Franco, and a busload of other recognizable funny people, all playing themselves. It’s basically an apocalyptic comedy specifically focusing on what happens to all those people from the Judd Apatow movies. Who else can we look forward to putting in an appearance? Here’s a short list: Emma Watson, Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Jay Baruchel, Martin Starr, Mindy Kaling, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson.
The script was written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, his writing partner on flicks such as Superbad, Pineapple Express, and The Green Hornet. Assuming you’re able to find a way to a parallel timeline where the Earth isn’t going to be destroyed tomorrow, you’ll be able to catch This Is the End in theaters on June 14, 2013.
