‘This Is the End’ Is Coming Back to Theaters This Friday


If you missed Seth Rogen’s apocalypse comedy This Is the End when it was released in June, you’ll get a chance to see it again on the big screen this weekend. The studio behind the movie is re-releasing it on 2000 screens on Friday to make more money and get more people to see it during what’s expected to be a slow weekend at the box office. Starring Rogen, James Franco, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson as fictionalized versions of themselves, This Is the End was popular with both critics (84% on Rotten Tomatoes) and audiences ($96.7 million at the box office), a rarity for a comedy these days.
