The end is nigh. To think it all started in 2007 as "Jay And Seth Versus The Apocalypse" a short YouTube clip starring Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel as themselves if they were degenerate roommates living in squalor during the apocalypse. This of course evolved into what's now known as "This Is The End," an ensemble apocalypse comedy that's expanded to also include friends-playing-themselves like James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson.

The end is nigh. To think it all started in 2007 as "Jay And Seth Versus The Apocalypse" a short YouTube clip starring Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel as themselves if they were degenerate roommates living in squalor during the apocalypse. This of course evolved into what's now known as "This Is The End," an ensemble apocalypse comedy that's expanded to also include friends-playing-themselves like James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson. And the premise is much the same; it's friends trapped during the apocalypse, only this time they're stuck at James Franco's house after a massive party.

The official synopsis: 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 and redemption.

The guest list is rather massive, with David Krumholtz, Jason Segel, Paul Rudd, Martin Starr, Kevin Hart, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Aziz Ansari, Mindy Kaling, and featuring in these new photos, Rihanna, Michael Cera and Emma Watson, who also has a pretty substantial role in the film as well. We've already seen it and so you can read our non-spoilery review here. We'll also say this: some cameos are still under wraps, so you'll have to keep an eye out for those when the film hits theaters next week on June 12th. Below, a new clip from the film, the original short and new the aforementioned photos.
