This is the End

Happy April Fools Day from the internet! This year's pranks include the Criterion Collection's announcement of Lena Dunham as the new creative director. Her first move as chief? All of Mumblecore maestro Joe Swanberg's films will be added to the prestigious DVD and Blu-ray company's repertoire.

In a faux inauguration statement, Dunham mentions that Criterion will be "offering up definitive versions of some of this generation’s most pertinent pieces of work. Films like 'Autoerotic,' 'Kissing On The Mouth' and 'Silver Bullets' prove Joe as one of today’s most important voices.”

Check out this April Fools' Day "trailer" for "Pineapple Express 2," in which stoners Seth Rogen and James Franco are assigned by Danny McBride to assassinate Woody Harrelson. The teaser is actually a prank spot for writer-directors Rogen and Evan Goldberg's comedy "This Is the End " (June 14), in which Rogen, Franco, McBride, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Emma Watson and Jay Baruchel all play themselves. Sony mounted a panel on the film at WonderCon.
