So April Fools’ Day is (thankfully) nearing an end and it looks like Bryan Singer and the folks behind “This Is The End” win the day. The former fooled Variety with a joke tweet about Lady Gaga playing Dazzler in “X-Men: Days Of Future Past,” while the latter dropped a joke teaser for “Pineapple Express 2” masquerading as a quick teaser for the apocalypse comedy. Well, they’ve decided to finish the day with a brand new red band trailer, and yeah, this looks like it’ll be something of a cameo-filled blast.
Rihanna, Kevin Hart, Mindy Kaling and a not fucking around Emma Watson are among the many guest appearances, with Michael Cera getting hilariously impaled and killed as well. Basically, in case it isn’t clear, the death count is gonna be super high and many of these folks won’t last the few seconds they appear on screen, but no matter, because this just looks completely ridiculous. The set up is almost obnoxiously simple, with a party at James Franco‘s house unfortunately coinciding with the end of the world, and Franco, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson are left to try and survive. And they milk the most of the situation. At this point, either you’re down with this or you’re not, but it looks like fans of the Apatow brotherhood will be plenty satisfied.
Stock up on supplies — “This Is The End” hits on June 14th.
