Columbia Pictures has released a batch of character posters for the upcoming apocalypse comedy This Is the End. The film marks the directorial debut of Superbad and Pineapple Express scribes Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and finds Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson playing heightened versions of themselves as they hole up in Franco’s house when a world-ending event occurs. Early buzz on the pic has been fantastic, and these character posters are a great tease for what’s sure to be a very, very funny ride. Additionally, the first and only original track from the soundtrack, “Take Yo Panties Off,” is now streaming online, and it features Snoop Dogg and Robinson waxing poetic about their lady friends.
Hit the jump to check out the posters and to listen to “Take Yo Panties Off.” This Is the End opens on June 14th.
