Red Band Trailer for “This is the End”: Emma Watson Goes Nuts


I’m kind of looking forward to this comedy from Seth Rogen and friends, aka the former Judd Apatow crew. Many of the Freaks and Geeks, plus Craig Robinson and Mindy Kaling from The Office, Michael Cera, and — get this– Rihanna– do a send up of end of the world movies playing themselves gathered at James Franco’s fictional home in New Orleans for a party. Emma Watson, who destroys her Hermione persona in “The Bling Ring,” swings an ax at it in this movie. Watch the clip.
