'This Is the End' has one of the most meta concepts in recent memory. Seth Rogen, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill and Jay Baruchel play themselves, holed up in Franco's home while the apocalypse rages outside. It sounds like a recipe for either big laughs or disaster (although early buzz suggests the former), but two clips have arrived to give us a taste of what the finished film will feel like.

The latest clip from the apocalyptic comedy 'This Is the End' focuses on an axe-wielding Emma Watson's theory that a zombies invasion is underway. As Jonah Hill says, "So tight!"
Though this was rumored last year, it looks like a sequel to 2012's '21 Jump Street' is moving forward. Sony has confirmed that they're going to make the film and that it will have a release sometime in 2014.
'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.
This is the end. At least it will be as of tomorrow, assuming the Mayan apocalypse arrives as scheduled. In anticipation of the end of the world as we know it, check out this new trailer for the Seth Rogen/James Franco apocalyptic comedy 'This Is the End.'
The zeitgeist giveth and the zeitgeist taketh away. Fortuitous timing lends some films the aura of relevance; bad timing lends others the stink of impropriety. Released last summer, ‘The Watch’ would have been just another Hollywood action comedy. Released this summer, it’s burdened by all sorts of unwanted and unintended cultural associations. It already endured a title change (from ‘Neighborhood Watch’) after the death of Trayvon Martin. Now this film -- which features a man exaggeratedly grieving for a murdered friend for comic effect and an antisocial dropout who stockpiles weapons -- opens a week after the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. This poor movie can’t catch a break, which is a shame because it’s actually pretty funny.
Though they just worked together in 'The Watch,' it appears that Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill enjoyed it enough to come back for seconds. The duo are looking to make 'Aloha' with Shawn Levy directing, and Nicholas Stoller writing.
There rumors before the film even came out that a '21 Jump Street' sequel was in the works. This is somewhat obviously confirmed by the film's ending that teases where Jenko and Schmidt would go in another installment. Jonah Hill and Michael Bacall (who wrote the original) were working on the script but no one expected things to move this quickly as Sony says filming is expected to begin this fall.
With 'The Watch' only a month away from its July 27th release, expect that marketing to pick up steam, especially since this (comparatively) small sci-fi comedy will be dealing directly with the box office wake of 'The Dark Knight Rises.' However, a comedy starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill shouldn't have a problem finding its audience if it's, you know, funny. With the first clip from the film now available online, we can start to see if it is.
