‘This is the End’ Clip: Emma Watson’s Apocalypse Theories

Published 2 years ago by

In This is the End, some of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities gather for an epic party at James Franco’s house, when an unexplained apocalyptic event suddenly strikes Los Angeles, killing many of our favorite stars in hilarious ways. The bevy of talented comedic actors playing versions of themselves in this extreme situation – including Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride and others –  has made the film one of the more anticipated of the summer.

Though the setup is intriguing and potentially very funny, the slew of surprising big-name cameos is also helping the film generate plenty of interest.

In the red and green-band trailers for the film, we’ve seen Michael Cera get skewered by a pole, pop-superstar Rihanna fall into a giant sinkhole and comic Kevin Hart try to kick fellow comedian/Parks and Rec star Aziz Ansari into the same massive bottomless pit. However, the most unexpected appearance of all was Harry Potter actress Emma Watson, who forces her way into Franco’s home-turned-bunker wielding an ax and looking for food and shelter.

A new clip (above) shows us more of Watson’s interaction with our main cast of survivors, which we can assume takes place shortly after Watson smashes her way into their stronghold and smashes Rogen’s face with the butt of her weapon in the process. She tells some of her personal survival story and cites a zombie outbreak as the cause behind all of the chaos.

Ever since the film and its premise were announced, there has been endless speculation about what singular source could be responsible for the ensuing destruction, but from what we’ve seen and heard, it appears Watson’s story is not the whole story.

In previous trailers, we’ve gotten glimpses of long-tailed creatures, which we asked co-writers/directors Rogen and Evan Goldberg about during a set visit. Of course, instead of a definitive answer, Rogen offered up more jokes and Goldberg remained tight-lipped. Said Rogen:

You saw some creatures? Who knows if that’s a place-holder creature or what? Jay could be a demon this whole movie.

Said Goldberg:

I’m not really enlightening people as to exactly how that goes down, or what happens. It’s just the “End of the World.” [Laughing]

Obviously, the filmmakers don’t want to give too much away, but something more is definitely going on in This is the End. Of course, the real appeal of the film for most is seeing these comedic actors engage in hilarious improvised banter with each other and with stars such as Watson. So does it really matter how it all ends? Maybe not. The ride alone will hopefully be worth the price of admission.


This is the End hits theatres on June 12, 2013.

  1. Its probably a little bit of everything.. aliens, zombies, natural disasters, etc… 😀

  2. This movie gets more and more hilarious after each clip and trailer. The interaction with the cast members is surprisingly great too :)

  3. Surprised how thick Emma Watson’s accent is. I dont even think its that thick on Harry Potter.

    • Thick as in sounding stronly English? From watching Emma Watson interviews in the last few years, her accent seems more diluted in the last year or so…she has a very slight touch of an American dialect going on, particularly in this scene. Whereas she always sounded very proper and English in Harry Potter.

      But maybe you find her accent more thick in front of all these North American actors?

  4. Thanks, Hollywood! You have successfully gathered every actor I hate into one movie. Emma Watson is the one shining star among the rest.

    • Emma Watson is perfection. So, you’re dumb.

  5. I thought this was going to be the Hangover version of Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World. I kinda want to see it now.

    • Emma Watson is perfection, so, you’re dumb.

      • Sorry, that meant to go to Tarkin713. 😉

  6. Cant stop watching the trailer smarturl.it/ThisIsTheEndPreview
    Cant believe Franco has his own song on the soundtrack
