If you're a big fan of apocalyptic buddy comedies, this is going to be an awesome summer, because not one but two such films will be hitting the big screen.

The first, of course, will be This is the End, which basically stars every person to ever appear in a Judd Apatow Jay Baruchel. The second, meanwhile, is the very similarly titled The World's End, which stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Paul. And while both are about a group of friends trying to navigate the trials and tribulations that come with the end of days, the former deals with a biblical kind of apocalypse, while the latter is decidedly more SciFi. In fact, The World's End looks pretty much just like Shaun of the Dead, only this time Pegg is the idiot instead of Frost, and they're fighting alien bodysnatchers instead of Zombies.

But in any case, like I said, if you're a fan of apocalyptic buddy comedies, this is your year. Enjoy.

The World's End hits theaters on August 23, 2013.
