In its red band trailer, the apocalypse comedy This is the End teased tons of carnage that will hilariously take the lives of celebs like Rihanna, Michael Cera, and Aziz Ansari. But most memorably, the NSFW promo showcased Harry Potter star Emma Watson as a badass starlet/survivalist! With an axe she busted her way into James Franco's house/slapdash strong hold and scared the hell out of its stoner inhabitants (Franco, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson). In the latest clip, she shares with them what she has seen out in this world that is falling apart at the seams. Check it out above thanks to ScreenCrush.
So what brand of world-ending disaster is overtaking Hollywood? According to Watson, it is obviously zombie invasion. That theory doesn't explain the horrific sinkholes and nightmare fuel creature sounds the trailers have teased so far. But the real joy of this clip is seeing the funny feature's frightened heroes putting aside their terror to attempt flirting with the bedraggled yet undeniably gorgeous Watson.
Penned by Rogen and his Superbad co-writer Evan Goldberg, This is the End is one of a string of apocalypse comedies coming out. But it's notably the only one that has celebrities playing comical versions of themselves in crisis. Its cast list promises appearances from a wide array of noteworthy funny people, including Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Mindy Kaling, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Martin Star, Kevin Hart, and Jason Trost.
This is the End is hitting theaters on June 12th.
