The world ended, cinematically speaking, a couple times this summer with Edgar Wright laying waste to it with pod people in "The World's End," and the rapture arriving in Seth Rogen's "This Is The End." Both provided ample opportunity for comic actors to riff on the demise of themselves and the planet, but only one was operating on meta, self-referential level that added a twist to the proceedings. We're talking about the latter picture, and it's now on home video, and if you haven't snatched up a copy yet, you might want to hold for just a moment in snapping on up....

This Is The End

The world ended, cinematically speaking, a couple times this summer with Edgar Wright laying waste to it with pod people in "The World's End," and the rapture arriving in Seth Rogen's "This Is The End." Both provided ample opportunity for comic actors to riff on the demise of themselves and the planet, but only one was operating on meta, self-referential level that added a twist to the proceedings. We're talking about the latter picture, and it's now on home video, and if you haven't snatched up a copy yet, you might want to hold for just a moment in snapping on up....

As you know, Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson are among those holed up in James Franco's house, as Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Emma Waston, Aziz Ansari, Rihanna and many, many, many more drop by to party, before things take a turn for the comedically deadly. But even with the end of the world looming, the survivors can't help but bicker amongst themselves all while they try and fight to survive. So how do you get your hands on your own copy of this apocalyptic laffer?

Email us with your name and address and tell us three celebs you'd want to ride out with the end of the world with. Good luck!

"This Is The End" is in stores now.
