Pineapple Express 2 April Fools' Trailer for This is the End
April 1, 2013
Columbia Pictures has released a trailer pretending to be for a sequel to Pineapple Express, but it's really a promo for This is the End. Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson play themselves in This is the End and all starred in Pineapple Express. The video looks like something that was put together on the set of the former.
Opening in theaters on June 12, the comedy also stars Jay Baruchel and Jonah Hill. The film follows six friends trapped in a house after a series of strange and catastrophic events devastate Los Angeles. As the world unravels outside, dwindling supplies and cabin fever threaten to tear apart the friendships inside. Once they discover that they are experiencing the Apocalypse, they must come to terms with why they were left behind. Eventually they are forced to leave the house, facing their fate and the true meaning of friendship and redemption.
