Early Buzz: 'This Is The End' Delivers Apocalypse-Sized Laughs

Tuesday night in Los Angeles, Sony held an early screening of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's comedy, This Is The End, which opens June 12. In the film Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson and Jay Baruchel all star as themselves. They, along with half of Hollywood, are at Franco's house for a party when the world literally starts to end.

Watching the trailers, we could see a lot of promise in the film. However, mixing Hollywood gossip with gross-out humor and Biblical stakes is a weird premise with plenty of risk. Could the laughs, cameos and other surprises balance out to make an actual funny, entertaining movie? According to the tweets coming out of the screening, the answer is a resounding "Yes." Here's just one, from a name you may recognize, then read more below.

Here are some other tweets from fellow movie journalists, bolstering Peter's take on the film.

And here are some tweets from other folk:

I went all the way back through Twitter and could not find one negative tweet about the film. That's very good news. Being one of the lucky few who saw it, I will say the film is most certainly hilarious, but is going to be slightly polarizing. We'll talk more about that in a few weeks though. For now, just know there is an incredibly funny movie coming your way.
