Although we think 'This is the End' is currently the highlight of the summer, the mere thought of a 'This Is the End 2' has us scratching our heads. After all, the film literally opens with the world ending and descending into a nightmarish apocalypse (before having a very, very definitive ending). But don't tell that to Evan Goldberg, who co-wrote and co-directed the film alongside Seth Rogen. It appears that they have an idea or two of where they could take things for the sequel.
This is the way the world ends; not with a whimper but with an extended improv session featuring Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and a fleet of other popular young comics. On an ordinary night in Los Angeles, the straight-up-biblical apocalypse begins. After the Rapture, our six heroes board themselves up in Franco's Hollywood mansion and wait for a rescue. It never comes. Supplies dwindle. Tensions mount. 'This Is the End.'
'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.
James Franco is asked often if they'll ever make a 'Pineapple Express 2' and for the first time we have an answer that sounds like a sequel to the 2008 hit is a lot closer than we think. The actor gives us our best update yet on 'Pineapple Express 2' and also lets us know that we'll never see a sequel to 'Your Highness,' a movie he says "sucks."
One of the gimmicks behind Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's 'This is the End' is that the cast is loaded with celebrities playing themselves. But that gets interesting when you have a performer like James Franco, whose life has become an art project. In this new featurette, you can see how the actors approached playing themselves.
FX has had a difficult time getting animated comedies off the ground apart from 'Archer,' as their most recent effort 'Unsupervised' floundered in both ratings and reviews, but their latest project should have none of those troubles. 'This is the End' funnyman Seth Rogen has partnered with FX and Evan Goldberg to bring to life an animated comedy based on the works of Graham Roumieu's faux autobiographical Bigfoot book 'In Me Own Words, Me Write Book,' but will FX capture that ever-elusive animated success?
What a glorious time to be an 'Arrested Development' fan. Just hours after the first official clip from the May 26 Netflix reunion series made its way online, a slew of new photos from 'Arrested Development' season 4 have hit as well. The new shots show the Bluth family back in action, along with some of our favorite peripheral characters, and even a look at Seth Rogen and Kristen Wiig's mysterious roles! It's not an illusion, Michael, look at photos!
'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!
