Ok, maybe the title was made under false pretenses, but The End of the World is coming- June 14th, 2013 to be exact.
It will star James Franco as James Franco, Jonah Hill as Jonah Hill, Emma Watson as Emma Watson (ok, we get the point); Jason Segel, Paul Rudd, Seth Rogan, Michael Cera, Rihanna, Jay Baruchel, Kevin Hart, David Krumholtz, Mindy Kaling, Danny McBride, Martin Starr and perhaps Aziz Ansari.
That’s right folks, Seth Rogen has written a movie where celebrities go and fight zombies before an oncoming zombie apocalypse occurs. The official synopsis is that James Franco is having a big party at his house in L.A. when all of a sudden a apocalypse occurs, leaving the guests to fight off the “attackers.”
I can’t really say who the attackers are- zombies, robots, vampire, etc, because according to a script online (which I don’t really know if it’s official or not), the following happens. RE- SKIP THE PARAGRAPH AFTER THE TRAILER IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT PROBABLY MIGHT HAPPEN
Based on a short called Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse, Jay Baruchel stated in an interview that, “The one thing that I can say-that was my pitch, my idea, that I think we’ll end up doing, because it would be foolish not to — I want a recurring joke, because it takes place in Los Angeles, and there’s a lot of famous people in Los Angeles, I want a bunch of cameos, but I just want them to be corpses. I want them to be like “oh god there’s Will Smith’s dead body in the corner!” And it would actually be him. So that’s my recurring joke for the movie: I want there to be a lot of dead famous people in it.
Also, Seth Rogan recently said that, “It’s now much more than just Jay and Seth-there’s many other people vs. the apocalypse now. It’s gonna be crazy.. . It’s a pretty offensive vision of the apocalypse. And I want a lot of dead celebrity cameos. Because L.A. is full of famous people, I’d like all of the cameos to be them as corpses.”want a recurring joke, because it takes place in Los Angeles, and there’s a lot of famous people in Los Angeles, I want a bunch of cameos, but I just want them to be corpses. I want them to be like “oh god there’s Will Smith’s dead body in the corner!” And it would actually be him.

My question- if it’s about celebrities fighting zombies, does that mean non-celebrity humans (yes, let’s just pretend you understand what I mean) have died? Or maybe the non-celebrities are the zombies themselves? . . . Why can’t we all go back to the day when we believed zombies rose from graves? Well anyway, watch the trailer of Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse here, as well as visit the blogspot for the film here too.
SPOILER ALERT- SPOILER ALERT- SPOILER ALERT- SPOILER ALERT- SPOILER ALERT- SPOILER ALERT-SPOILER ALERT
[spoiler]During the party at James Franco’s house, the Biblical Rapture happens. All the celebrities die gruesome deaths, leaving only Jay, Seth, James, Jonah, Craig Robinson and Danny McBride. Danny leaves the house to go his own way halfway through the film. Jonah survives until the end when he gets possessed and dies. The rest are forced from the house and are now outside where the demons are. In order to save the remaining guests, Craig sacrifices himself as a distraction and is raised into heaven by a beam of light. Jay, Seth and James bump into Danny who is a leader of a group of cannibals. The cannibals eat James and Jay and Seth are left at the end. Their strained friendship being a huge Macguffin (Alfred Hitchcock used this, meaning to move the plot forward) in the film, the two become friends again, do good deeds and get lifted up into heaven.[/spoiler]
