In what can be viewed as fantastic marketing, Columbia Pictures has chosen to release a teaser clip via Yahoo! Movies for Evan Goldberg (The Green Hornet) and Seth Rogen’s (Knocked Up) This is the End on the day that some people actually believe will be the end of the world. Unsurprisingly, Columbia Pictures must still be planning for the future, bearing in mind the film is set for release on June 14th, 2013.
This is the End (a.k.a. The End of the World) features an all star stars line up of new school comedy stars such as Seth Rogen, James Franco (Pineapple Express), Jay Baruchel (Tropic Thunder), Craig Robinson (Hot Tub Time Machine), Danny McBride (Eastbound and Down) and Jonah Hill (21 Jump Street) and centres on six friends trapped in a house after a series of strange and catastrophic events devastate Los Angeles. As the world unravels outside, dwindling supplies and cabin fever threaten to tear apart the friendships inside. Once they discover that they are experiencing the Apocalypse, they must come to terms with why they were left behind. Eventually they are forced to leave the house, facing their fate and the true meaning of friendship and redemption.
With such a great line up, This is the End is sure to provide some laughs for 2013.
