Is it some reflection on contemporary culture that “apocalypse comedy” is a genre now? Is this, in itself, a sign of the end of the world? We had “Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World” last year, amid the 2012 hullabaloo, and Edgar Wright's “The World's End” is incoming along with “This Is The End,” the upcoming apo-comedy coming from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg in which Rogen and a bunch of his friends – James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel and Craig Robinson, along with a huge number of other cameo-ing celebs – play themselves as the end times begin to unfold during a party at Franco's.

This Is The End
Is it some reflection on contemporary culture that “apocalypse comedy” is a genre now? Is this, in itself, a sign of the end of the world? We had “Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World” last year, amid the 2012 hullabaloo, and Edgar Wright's “The World's End” is incoming along with “This Is The End,” the upcoming apo-comedy coming from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg in which Rogen and a bunch of his friends – James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Jay Baruchel and Craig Robinson, along with a huge number of other cameo-ing celebs – play themselves as the end times begin to unfold during a party at Franco's.

Not only are there are lot of these films around right now, there's a lot of this particular film around right now: we've had numerous trailers, posters, TV spots 
and now these three clips, which are already showing off some more gags from the film, including an axe-wielding Emma Watson, the decision to split a Milky Way and one more scene that you might not want to watch until you're in theaters. Granted, a movie like this can't really be "spoiled," but you might want to hold off on that third clip. 

We've reviewed “This Is The End” already, but if you want to find out for yourselves, you need only wait until June 12th...
