In just a matter of weeks This Is The End will hit theaters and unleash a level of awesome so may not even expect coming. With all of the actors playing themselves, anything goes in this apocalyptic thrill ride of a comedy. After the break, check out some official production stills from the movie, along with six “character” posters for each of the main cast.
From what was given from the first teaser trailer, I knew immediately that This Is The End would be a special kind of comedy that would not disappoint. And then the fun times at WonderCon with the cast and the hilarious full-length red band trailer put the nail in the coffin. If this movie fails to be funny than there is no hope for any one else.

With Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, and Craig Robinson in the spotlight, it’s safe to say that the gloves will be off. These heavyweights of the comedy gauntlet have put in their time and This Is The End will be the perfect arena for them to shine. One of the best elements of this movie is bringing Jay (She’s Out of My League), Craig (Hot Tub Time Machine), and Danny (Eastbound & Down) up into the forefront of this movie so they can earn the recognition they deserve. Accompanying our gang of misfits is an extraordinary secondary cast of actors along with brilliant cameos. This Is The End is going to be one of the funniest movies of the year, I can feel it in my bones.
