The first clip and poster for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s directorial debut, the apocalypse comedy This Is the End, has been released online. It’s perfect timing, as tomorrow may or may not be the end of the world as we know it, so keep in mind that this could be the only piece of footage from This Is the End that your eyes will see before an unholy Mayan apocalypse engulfs us all. It’d be a shame if the world did end tomorrow, though, because This Is the End looks fantastic. Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, and Danny McBride all play themselves in the aftermath of the apocalypse to hilarious results, with plenty of self-referential comedy to go around. McBride in particular is excellent in this clip, and if this is any indication of what the full film is like, then This Is the End will be the must-see comedy of next summer.
Hit the jump to watch the clip which features a timely introduction by Rogen and Franco, and to check out the film’s poster and a new image. The film also stars Jason Segel, Michael Cera, Emma Watson, David Krumholtz, Paul Rudd, Martin Starr, Mindy Kaling, Kevin Hart, and Rihanna. This Is the End opens on June 14, 2013.
You’re driving down the street, and it’s suddenly blocked off. You notice these weird yellow signs with nonsensical letters or numbers. There’s unusual glow lighting up a neighborhood you can’t usually see from your house. What you might have here is a film company shooting in your town. It happens a lot, and you never know where they might pop up…until now.
The following is a semi-comprehensive list of films currently shooting, what they’re shooting, and where they’re shooting. We’ll be telling you where you might get to see the very famous, the kinda famous and (if all goes well) the soon-to-be famous. While we can’t list every single movie, television show, or student film in production, you’ll get a pretty good idea of what the heck is going on where all those people are buzzing about. Want to know where in the world are Matt Damon, Harrison Ford, Sylvester Stallone, Woody Harrelson, and Leonardo DiCaprio? Hit the jump for more.
Hollywood A-listers throw the best apocalypse parties. Directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have managed to land cameos from Emma Watson, Jason Segel and David Krumholtz, all starring as themselves, in the 2013 disaster comedy, The End of the World. We already knew that James Franco would feature heavily in the film, since it seems that the celebs are crashing his apartment to ride out the apocalypse. The place is starting to get a lot more crowded than the original short film that featured Rogen and Jay Baruchel as the only survivors holed up during the End of Days. Watson is reportedly still in negotiations, but Segel and Krumholtz are set to join Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Aziz Ansari, Craig Robinson and the others. Should be one hell of a party. Hit the jump for more, including a trailer for the short film. [Update: Variety reports that Michael Cera and Rihanna are also circling cameo roles.]
Part of me feels like I’m one of the few people looking forward to another Harold & Kumar movie, but I don’t care. The Harold & Kumar movies are delightfully madcap, feature a nice mix of gross-out humor and absurdity, and it looks like they’ve gone all out with A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas. Director Todd Strauss-Schulson seems to have acknowledged that 3D is a mostly-gimmicky technology and used it to augment the shenanigans of his lead characters.
New Line has released twenty-five new images along with four new set photos and I continue to remain jazzed to see the movie. Hit the jump to check out the images. A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas opens November 4th.
Eight character posters have gone online for A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas. Nothing can ever come close to the NPH riding a unicorn teaser poster from Harold & Kumar 2, but there’s a Danny Trejo character banner in here that comes close. It’s also one of the few that doesn’t have a pot-pun as the tagline.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. The film stars John Cho, Kal Penn, Paula Garcés, Danneel Harris, Tom Lennon, Danny Trejo, Elias Koteas, Eddie Kaye Thomas, David Krumholtz, Patton Oswalt, and Neil Patrick Harris. A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas opens November 4th.
