This Is the End

Directors: Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen
Writers: Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Jason Stone
Stars: James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Emma Watson, Rihanna

This Is the End takes place in a slightly-altered version of the world that we currently live in. James Franco, played by himself, is hosting an epic party with some of the hottest young celebrities (i.e. Rihanna, Emma Watson, Mindy Kaling, Channing Tatum) in attendance. During the festivities, the party-goers notice a disturbance outside and venture to see what's going on. As you could guess, it's the end of the world and a massive hole opens in Franco's yard, swallowing most of the guests. The people left are those you see in the poster. They must cope with a lack of resources, a thieving Emma Watson, a horny demon and, most of all, each other. While, on the surface, it seems kind of corny, it's actually a very well-done film and one that I greatly enjoyed (despite James Franco's presence).

Mini soundtrack:

Pulp - "Disco 2000"
