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.
This Is The End mark the directorial debut of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the guys who brought you the scripts for Superbad, Pineapple Express and The Green Hornet, and they seem to be pulling out all the stops to talk a whole lot of famous people into joining their weird comic vision of what happens when the apocalypse comes to Hollywood. In the latest red band trailer we got a look at a lot of famous faces that are present when all the world-collapsing goes down, and how Emma Watson winds up wielding an axe and looting houses. But for the most part we're hunkering down with famous faces like James Franco, Rogen, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill and Jay Baruchel-- none of whom, of course, are at all prepared to survived.
The clip debuted at MTV as part of a massive week of reveals, all leading up to next Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, where we're been promised the first Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer among other things. Tune in for that and much more on Sunday.
