Hot Tub Time Machine 2
It turns out John Cusack can turn down movies. More on that in a second. Starring the rat tag utterly motley crew cast of Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke, no one in a million years dreamed that 2010's "Hot Tub Time Machine" was going to be a hit, let alone a pretty funny and a pretty good comedy. It beat the odds, and as directed by Steve Pink (co-writer of “Grosse Pointe Blank” and “High Fidelity”) it delivered ridiculous, vulgar and absurd laughs. As silly as the premise was, hell, it worked.

This Is The End, Hill, Rihanna
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.

Jay Baruchel, Craig Robinson and Seth Rogen in This Is the End
Upon viewing the abundance of “This is the End” clips and trailers that are available online, one thing is for certain: these guys had a lot of fun making this movie. You’ve got James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, etc. all getting to play fictionalized versions of themselves in an apocalyptic comedy co-directed by Rogen (alongside Evan Goldberg). Sounds like a grand old time. But will us average movie-going folk enjoy it half as much as they will? That’s the question.

Peeples
You’d be forgiven if you expected Tyler Perry to influence a large chunk of “Peeples,” the latest film to carry his name like a neon sign promising broad comedy and aggressive but dubious morality. Even the beginning seems to hum with the predictable rhythms of Perry’s multi-movie empire, with a dark screen soundtracked to the purr of a man’s voice introducing a particularly holy gospel tune. It’s a clever strategy for writer-director Tina Gordon Chism, who soon reveals that this is comic actor Craig Robinson, crooning to a classroom filled with children about the need to avoid urinating on others. At once, you’re assured that this film is going to explore places Perry normally wouldn’t dare… and surely places maybe you wouldn’t seek either.

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.

Well, it's ambitions were certainly up there. First announced two years ago, we kind of totally forgot about "Rapturepalooza," but Anna Kendrick and John Francis Daley had signed on for a comedy that was aiming to be something like "Zombieland" meets "The Big Lebowski." But judging by this new trailer for the movie, the filmmakers missed the mark...and then some...

"The End Of The World" is coming, and no, we're not talking about the Mayan nonsense that has tinfoil hat types stocking up on batteries and water. We're talking about Seth Rogen's directorial debut (he shares the chair with longtime writing collaborator Evan Goldberg, and yes, they both penned the script), the apocalypse comedy that's now called "This Is The End." And the first red band spot is here.

Originally a comedy short film from the dynamic writing duo of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the twisted minds behind “Superbad,” “The Pineapple Express,” and the upcoming Ben Stiller-starring comedy “Neighborhood Watch,” “Jay and Seth Vs The Apocolapyse” has gone from interesting sensation in 2007 to a long-rumored feature film. Along with short film co-star Jay Baruchel, Rogen and Goldberg have been teasing the feature release for quite some time, with the casting of the group’s regular collaborators James Franco and Jonah Hill being announced back in September.

But It Looks Like Daniel Radcliffe Is OutWe've never liked the term The Frat Pack (for all their potty mouths, the particular comedies that those to whom the term is applied make aren't actually that fratty; Todd Phillips' output is a better fit), but there's no denying that the ever-expanding family tree of actors and comics who've risen up in the last few years, mostly thanks to the patronage of Judd Apatow, are an incestuous lot. Clearly great friends in real life, they like nothing better than cameoing in each other's work, teaming up for buddy pictures, and generally getting paid to hang out on screen.
