Ask and you shall receive. For comedy fans hoping for a piece of marketing material from This Is The End that is light on spoilers and appropriate for most audiences, the official green band trailer has finally released. Within this new trailer we find more plot, more jokes, and the same level of shenanigans. Catch the all new trailer for This Is The End after the jump.
From we have gathered based on the red band teaser trailer and previous red band trailer presented to us thus far, a lot of celebrities visit James Franco’s house for a big party and then the world seems to be fall apart. There hasn’t been really anything else for audiences to understand. This new green band trailer expands a little bit on the plot, and it may have to do with the actual apocalypse depicted in the Bible.
For anyone still fearing spoilers, there are about two to three jokes you may not be happy you had seen, but I don’t think those moments will absolutely kill the mood. In fact, I think these jokes here are just a taste of what’s to come. Given that the Bible is introduced in this trailer, it is interesting to look at the strange blue beams of light from the sky that is sucking people up. There is also a hell beast roaming around the house. Watch the trailer below and see what you make of This Is The End:
As we explore a little further into the trailer, I believe it would be safe to assume not everyone will be utilized as much as you think. We know from the trailers that certain people die, but it would appear that Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, and Craig Robinson are the main attraction to this apocalyptic laugh fest. And I have no problem with that. These actors can easily hold their weight on screen and have a great chemistry together from what we’ve seen from Pineapple Express, Superbad, Funny People, and Knocked Up.
You can read up on the official plot synopsis to This Is The End courtesy of Apple Trailers:
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.
With the directorial debut of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, it will be interesting to see how well the writing duo fair in constructing a full-length feature film narrative out of their original short film, Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse. Sometimes short films were meant to be short films, while others benefit from the longer convergence of time.
