'This Is The End' has become one of this summer's most anticipated films, thanks to a couple of hilarious red-band trailers (check out the most recent one here, if you are the only person on the internet who hasn't seen it yet). To get your anticipation for it raised even higher, the first clip has just been released and is waiting for you after the jump!

'This is the End' got an early jump on April Fool's Day by releasing a fake trailer for 'Pinapple Express 2,' but that was all a build-up to the latest trailer for the movie, which is NSFW, filthy and filled with violence. It's also pretty great.
Yes, it's April Fools Day. And yes, this is a trailer for 'Pineapple Express 2.' Is this a joke? If so, what are Seth Rogen, James Franco and Danny McBride all doing in this new footage? We'll explain after the break.
Although Seth Rogen's directorial debut doesn't hit theaters for a few more months, Columbia seems to have faith in his talents: he's signed on the dotted line to direct, produce and star in a new comedy called 'The Interview.' In addition, the studio is apparently eyeing frequent Rogen co-star James Franco for the other lead.
James Franco might not be the best actor working in movies today, but he's almost certainly the most fearless. His choices are as unpredictable as they are gutsy. He'll try just about anything: television dramas ('Freaks & Geeks'), soap operas ('General Hospital'), comedies ('Pineapple Express'), and big blockbusters ('Spider-Man,' 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'). His latest role, in Harmony Korine's 'Spring Breakers,' might be his craziest and most daring to date. He plays Alien -- pronounced "A-Leen" in Franco's South Florida drawl -- a drug dealer and aspiring rapper who likes to boast that he's from another planet. Franco's performance is suitably extraterrestrial: hilarious, disturbing, deranged, poignant and endlessly quotable. In an instant classic scene, Alien shows off all his prized possessions -- machine guns and money and nunchucks and 'Scarface' DVDs on constant repeat -- while screaming "Look at my s---!" Alien's orders are superfluous; any time Franco's onscreen, you can't take your eyes off him.
"I don't want to be a good man; I want to be a great one." So says Oscar, a humble (read: crummy) magician in a traveling circus circa 1905, just before a magical tornado sweeps him and his hot air balloon away to a land that just so happens to share his nickname: Oz. In 'Oz the Great and Powerful,' Oscar (James Franco) finds exactly what his heart desires; the chance to be a great man, wealthy and powerful, the ruler of a beautiful kingdom. And the kingdom does look damn good, and most of Oz's adventures in it are pretty entertaining as well.
Are you guys dying of 'Spring Breakers' fatigue yet? No? Good! Neither are we, so we're stoked to bring you this new red-band trailer, along with a featurette, some TV spots and a new poster. Spring Break forever!
Just when we thought the 'Spring Breakers' trailers couldn't be any more crazy and inappropriate for the kids, in steps the brand-new, red-band look with some new footage of guns, drugs and Selena Gomez in a bikini.
'Spring Breakers' is about to premiere at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival next month and in advance of the big premiere we have more of what 'Spring Breakers' does best: girls in bikinis. Today, five new character posters from the film introducing us to the Spring Breakers themselves - Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson among them - and, of course, wearing bikinis.
The 2013 Super Bowl gives us one last, big look at Disney's 'Wizard of Oz' prequel.
