Sonuvagun! if the new red band trailer for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's apocalyptic comedy This is the End doesn't make the movie look frikkin' hilarious. You know exactly what you're going to get this Summer. Substance abuse. Copious swearing. Sexual humor out your ying-yang. Bloody violence. And Emma Watson with an axe!
The film stars James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen,
Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson. There will be cameos by pretty much anyone under 30 in Hollywood. To name a few you get Michael Cera, Emma

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

Spoiler warning for Zombeavers. You get what you pay for with a movie called Zombeavers - or you'd better get it, otherwise why did you pay for it? It must suck to be a "Neologism Title" movie (for which the Sharknado trilogy sets the bar very low), because the only...
