James Franco Holds A Grudge Against Seth Rogen For Killing Him In This Is The End
While most of the characters in Rogen and Goldberg’s This Is The End find a way to get raptured and taken off to heaven, that was not the fate that wound up being orchestrated for James Franco. Instead, a plan to "sacrifice" himself in the third act of the movie goes horribly awry, and he winds up getting eaten by Danny McBride and his team of cannibals.

Does Counterprogramming Work? 11 David Vs. Goliath Box Office Stories
There are few things Hollywood movie studios do more than obsess over release dates. They are put together years in advance like a giant jigsaw puzzle. In theory, you would think every single movie would scratch and claw to get the easiest competition possible, but sometimes, the best thing a flick can do is find the biggest, most splashy entry on the calendar and position itself as counter-programming.

The 10 Best Movie Music Moments Of 2013
Last year was a pretty fantastic one for movie music. Directors like David O. Russell, Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino and Ben Affleck made not only fantastic films, but also beautifully crafted soundtracks that blended perfectly with the story and visuals on screen. As a result, 2013 had a lot to live up to, but looking back on the last twelve months reveals that this year’s crop of filmmakers were more than up for the task.

This Is The End Blooper Reel Clip Is Funny But Too Short
Rogen also told MTV his theory behind what made this comedy work for both critics and audiences. “I think a lot of movies with big casts do a thing where they break everyone up and distribute the people throughout the movie and maybe there’s one scene that they’re all in together,” he said. “We really went out of our way to not do that."

Seth Rogen And Evan Goldberg's This Is The End Is Returning To Theaters
This is The End is easily one of the funniest films to be released this year, and while its story is rather simple it makes up for it by being incredibly hilarious. If you haven't already seen the film I would highly recommend checking it out this weekend, and if you have already seen it then you're probably already thinking about going again.

This Is The End Will Laugh Onto Blu-ray In October
Apocalyptic-themed movies, including comedies, have been trendy for a few years now, but that didn’t stop Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg from producing the apocalyptic comedy This is the End. As it turns out, this is a good thing, since the film is both audacious and a riot for any celebrity enthusiasts. Fans of the film will be pleased to learn This is the End will be hitting Blu-ray, DVD and Digital this fall.

Evan Goldberg Has Big Ideas For This Is The End Sequel
Oh my God, are they back again? Friends and writing partners Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg crushed it when they scripted the crude coming-of-age comedy Superbad years ago, but they really upped the ante with This is the End, an end-of-the-world dark comedy they not only wrote but also directed.

Here's How This Is The End Was Originally Supposed To End
And among its many virtues is a finale that is a total showstopper that features a surprising cameo and has had audiences dancing in their seats. But it turns out this bonkers resolution was not how Rogen and Goldberg originally scripted the end.

Man Of Steel Makes $46 Million On Friday On Its Way To Huge Box Office Weekend
It's now on track for $120 million for the weekend proper, with another $12 million on top of that if you count a series of showing on Thursday night held at Wal-Mart (yes, that really happened). That's more than twice what Superman Returns made on its opening weekend in 2006-- that film debuted to $52 million and topped out with just $200 million in the United States, a number Man of Steel ought to be able to pass after its second weekend

Your Guide To This Is The End's Many Connections And In-Jokes
Seth Rogen and his co-director Evan Goldberg collected their famous buddies and somehow convinced all of them to play themselves, which left room for a million in-jokes at the expense of nearly every movie the guys have made. Before you get the chance to mock them about the idea of a Pineapple Express 2 or James Franco hanging on to the camera from 127 Hours, believe us, they've made it first

Watch The This Is The End Cast Stop Being Polite And Start Getting Real
This weekend's This Is The End started off as the short "Jay and Seth vs The Apocalypse," which was essentially about what happens when Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogen stop being polite and start getting real… because the world has ended outside their door. Of course, that's a concept that started more than 20 years ago with The Real World

This Is The End Set Visit Interviews: Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill And More Tell All
On some set visits, you spend a lot of time talking to the people who make the film look the way it does, from the production designers to the costumers to the director, all of them showing you their amazing special effects and the unique world they've created, usually within a soundstage. And while the effects on This Is The End will no doubt be impressive-- directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg still seemed slightly amazed that Sony even gave them the budget they had-- the movie is really all about the talking

On The Set Of This Is The End, Where Improv And The Apocalypse Finally Meet
" 'More blood' is something that's said often on this set." And here I thought I had traveled to New Orleans last June to visit the set of a comedy. It starred a laundry list of likable dudes from the Apatow orbit-- Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jay Baruchel, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride-- and was marking the directorial debut of Rogen and his childhood friend Evan Goldberg

This Is The End Clip: Nobody Wants To Die At James Franco's House
Given how often apocalypse movies are set in Los Angeles, and the never-ending threat of an earthquake that will send all of California out to sea, you'd think at least a couple of famous people would have a disaster plan in mind. But as we can see in this brand-new clip from This is The End, apparently all there is is an assumption that they'll rescue the famous people first-- and a deep, totally understandable desire not to die in James Franco's house

Pineapple Express 2 Red-Band Trailer Is For A Real Movie, But Not Pineapple Express 2
April Fools! OK, you probably didn't fall for it, since we're not cruel enough to go with their joke in our headline, but it's fun to pretend for at least a little while that this really is the low-budget sequel to Pineapple Express that James Franco, Seth Rogen, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson made in their house, somehow stealing the original costumes from the Sony props department and convincing David Gordon Green to sign off on it

Seth Rogen's This Is The End Gets A Hilarious New Red Band Trailer
When you stick Seth Rogen, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill and Danny McBride all in a room together you know that their conversation is going to be extremely funny. But if you put that same conversation against the backdrop of the end of the world it just takes it all to a while new level of hilarious. And in the first trailer for This is The End the crew of comedians make it work brilliantly.

Aziz Ansari Joins Seth Rogen's The Apocalypse
The idea for the feature came from a project that Rogen and Baruchel did together a few years ago. Titled Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse, the movie was actually a fake trailer about Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogen living together after the biblical end of days has occurred. The short film made it looks like the comedy will entirely be set in one location and have all of the characters fighting with each other a la Roman Polanski's Carnage.

Jay and Seth vs. Apocalypse Trailer
I have no idea what this next project is supposed to be – just a joke trailer or presumably a short film and not a full length feature, but I think I could even handle a feature if the trailer is any indication. This trailer has appeared online for Jay and Seth versus the Apocalypse. It looks like Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogen playing themselves in a post-apocalyptic “last man on the planet” type environment... and getting on each other's nerves.
