Have you begun your preparations for the end of the world, as predicted by the Mayan calendar? Are you in need of a distraction from thinking about the end of the world that is hilarious, inappropriate and features actors Seth Rogen and James Franco? Well, it’s is your lucky day because, in advance of the end of days, we have a brand-new clip to watch from Rogen’s long-awaited directorial debut, “This Is The End,” formerly titled “The End of the World” and “Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse.”
Rogen and Franco are the stars of the very inappropriate, NSFW, red band clip. Things start off innocently enough with an introduction from two real-life friends sitting in a bunker, lamenting the fact that, if the world ends, we won’t be able to enjoy the full-length version of “This is the End” because it’s not scheduled to be released until 2013.
“It’s really funny, it’s about the end of the world,” Franco says.
“We’ve prepared a scene from it so our work didn’t go to waste,” adds Rogen, before they engage in a series of time-wasting activities that include smoking pot, shooting items off each other’s heads, a sword fight with a pot and metal pole. Eventually we get to the clip, which opens with Danny McBride sitting at a kitchen table eating a bunch of food. Franco lumbers sleepily into the kitchen and promptly freaks out because McBride is eating all of their survival food and wakes up the rest of the gang: Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Craig Robinson and Jonah Hill — all of whom are playing themselves. Much like Franco and Rogen’s introduction, things begin to unravel quickly and we find out that there have supposedly been a lot of fatalities and the guys might be in the middle of the apocalypse.

“This Is The End” opens next summer and also features appearances by Rihanna, Emma Watson, Jason Segel, Aziz Ansari, Michael Cera, Paul Rudd, David Krumholtz and Mindy Kaling.
