6 Los Angeles celebrities are stuck in James Franco's house after a series of devastating events just destroyed the city. Inside, the group not only will have to face with the apocalypse, but with themselves.
Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapaport run the celebrity tabloid show "Skylark Tonight". When they land an interview with a surprise fan, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, they are recruited by the CIA to assassinate him.
Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
All Jay Baruchel expected coming to LA was a fun time with Seth Rogen with all the wild partying to have both by themselves and at James Franco's housewarming party. Suddenly, the Rapture hits and the Biblical Apocalypse has begun. Now, Jay and Seth are desperately sheltering in James' house for rescue along with a few other friends. Together, they must band together to attempt to survive the end of the world, only for Jay to find that they are all too dumb and superficial to do it until they discover the only way out.Written by

The film appeared to have finished a very successful North American box-office run, falling just short of the one hundred million dollar benchmark for blockbuster status, with over ninety-six million dollars in receipts. Then it fell into very limited release by the end of August 2013. The one hundred million dollar blockbuster goal is no longer considered as unique or important as it once was, due to the combination of higher ticket prices and film budgets, as well as the fact that most major films take in most of their box-office revenue from international markets. Nevertheless, Sony Pictures put the film into over two thousand additional theaters for the week of September 6-12, 2013, specifically to aim at getting over the nine-figure benchmark. On September 14, its ninety-fifth day in theaters, it officially reached blockbuster status. See more »

Was lucky enough to see a preview of this tonight, and can recommend it to anyone looking for a funny, modern and silly yet at times shocking comedy. Not sure how it can have a score of only 6.4 at the moment, the film is easily the best comedy of the year so far and deserving of an 8 or my case a nine as i was so pleasantly surprised by the quality of the jokes and the story.
The cast is perfect and the cameos aren't there to fill out the movie and take up time, they are excellent especially Emma Watson and Michael Cera. There are a few scary jumps on the way but the humour will carry you through it, as i said the story so well written you'll go with the flow.
Go watch it you won't be disappointed!
