A new behind-the-scenes featurette for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s directorial debut This Is the End has landed online. As Rogen explains it, “the end of the world happens and a bunch of friends barricade themselves together, and then all of their problems kind of come to the surface.” It just so happens that the group of friends in question consists of Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, and Danny McBride. Within the featurette, the actors talk about playing versions of themselves in the film and how close they are to reality (Franco’s character is obsessed with Rogen in the pic), and we also get a look at more of the hilarity that ensues.
Hit the jump to watch the featurette. The film also stars Emma Watson, Jason Segel, Michael Cera, David Krumholtz, Paul Rudd, Martin Starr, Mindy Kaling, Kevin Hart, Aziz Ansari, and Rihanna. This Is the End opens on June 14, 2013.
Here’s the official synopsis for This Is the End:
The comedy This Is The End follows 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. Eventually, they are forced to leave the house, facing their fate and the true meaning of friendship and redemption.
