Yesterday’s Pineapple Express 2 trailer might have been an April Fool’s joke, but at least the red band trailer for This Is the End is the real deal. And considering this film is about James Franco, Seth Rogen, Craig Robinson, and Danny McBride getting high and doing stupid shit, it’s basically the sequel to Pineapple Express, except the characters have different names and Michael Cera shows up to smack Rihanna’s ass. Besides, do you even remember the names of the characters in Pineapple Express, or do you just refer to them as “stoned James Franco” and “stoned Seth Rogen”? That’s what I figured.
This Is the End opens June 12.
