This Is The End not only has the most ridiculous cast and celebrity cameos (Rihanna! Mindy Kaling! Aziz Ansari!), but we’re going to assume it’s also going to have the best filmatic deaths ever to grace the big screen. To help celebrate the movie’s release, here’s a bingo card to help you keep track of all the craziness bound to happen during James Franco’s botched-thanks-to-the-apocalypse house party.

This Is The End bingo card after the jump!
Just in case you weren’t up for watching This Is The End, starring everyone who’s been in a Judd Apatow movie, here are two clips featuring everyone’s favourite witch, Emma Watson.
Watson finds the gang at James Franco’s house where they begin to throw out theories of what’s actually happening in the outside world? Is it a zombie invasion? Is it the impending apocalypse? Who knows!
We might find out once This Is The End hits theatres June 12.
WATCH EMMA WATSON IN THIS IS THE END BELOW:
“Hermione just stole all of our shit” are words I never thought I would hear anyone say, but that’s exactly what happens in this latest Seth Rogan buddy comedy movie. She also swears and it’s actually so perfect and Game of Thrones worthy (let’s make this happen).
Anyways, the apocalyptic buddy comedy This Is The End stars James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel and just about everyone in Hollywood. It’s pretty much the who’s who of the famous people/comedy bubble, and it even includes a cameo by none other than Rihanna. So many people die in this one trailer alone that I’m sure the haters will love this flick so much that their little black hearts warm up just a tiny bit.
This Is the End is due to arrive in theatres on June 12, 2013.
HIT: Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively get married
Ryan Reynolds, a.k.a. 2010′s Sexiest Man of the Year, married Gossip Girl’s hottie Blake Lively in South Carolina on Sunday night. It’s Blake’s first marriage and Reynold’s second. Not only did Martha Stewart’s team plan the wedding (and will be featured in her December issue), it took place in the house that Rachel McAdam’s character in the Notebook lived in during that fateful summer. Basically, they had every bride’s dream wedding.
MISS: Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are separating
Poehler and Arnett announced their separation last week. The couple have been together for nine years and have two children together. Arnett also made an appearance on Poehler’s Youtube advice channel. The split has apparently been amicable so hopefully for comedy lovers, this isn’t the end of their onscreen collaborations. For the rest of us, though, this might be the end of true love.
HIT: Emma Stone stars in a Breast Cancer awareness ad with her mom
The all-around amazing actress is in Revlon’s PSA ad, “Your Lips Can Save Lives” with her breast-cancer survivor mom, Krista, who diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008. Stone hopes to be an advocate for getting checked every year as her mom’s tumor wasn’t there the year before she was diagnosed. She and her family all have blackbird feet tattoos (from the Beatles’ “Blackbird” and drawn by the Paul McCartney no less) to commemorate her mother’s journey. Can you be anymore perfect, Emma?
MISS: Rihanna caught kissing Chris Brown at the VMAs
I don’t care if Rihanna forgave him, but I do care about what Brown represents. The fact that people still treat him like a god that makes me angry when I see people hating on girls like Kristen Stewart. Cheat on your boyfriend? You have the whole world hating you. Hit your girlfriend? Win a couple of awards a few years later even though you behave like a douchebag. The world is unfair.
HIT: Anderson Cooper talks about coming out
Cooper made his first public comments on his coming out on Monday since July. He spoke with his guest co-host Kristen Chenowith on his daytime show Anderson Live. He decided to let the public know because to him, visibility was important. “… The tide of history only moves forward when everybody is fully visible,” he continued. You go Anderson Cooper! You’ve achieved hero status.
MISS: Allison Pill accidently tweets topless photo of herself
The Newsroom actress, Allison Pill, accidently tweeted a photo of herself wearing a cute pair of glasses and nothing else on Wednesday morning. I wouldn’t worry too much about it, Pill. We’ll forgive you because a) you ‘fessed up and didn’t blame it on a hack, b) said it was you, c) you’re adorable with or without a shirt, and c) you’re fiancé to be, Jay Baruchel retweeted your apology. If anything, Pill should apologize for the cavity she’s giving me because her and Baruchel are too cute.
A few things were obvious to Jacob Tierney when he set out to write “The Trotsky”. He knew he wanted to make a high school movie and that he wanted to base the story in Montreal’s west end. He was also sure it had to involve socialist Leon Trotsky in one way or another.
However, when Tierney finished the first draft, something unfortunate became clear to him. “It sucked, yeah it was a bad drama,” he said of the original screenplay. “It was not anything that anyone would have wanted to see. And it was just bad.”
It then became obvious that “The Trotsky,” out in Canadian theatres, was meant to be a comedy instead of a drama. But the Trotsky element was left intact.
“He was the guy I knew the most about,” says Tierney of Trotsky. “He was somebody that captured my imagination, so it was easy to imagine him capturing somebody else’s imagination.”
“The Trotsky” tells the story of Leon Bronstein, an affluent Montreal teen played by Jay Baruchel, who believes he’s the reincarnation of Trotsky. While Tierney, 30, and his main character were both into Trotsky as teenagers, their similarities end there.
“When you write a movie, there’s a part of me in absolutely every one of those characters. They all kind of say things at different points that I would say. They all do things that I would do. But no, I was not like Leon in high school. I would of like to have been more like Leon in high school,” the Montreal native admits.
It was crucial for him to find an actor that could pull off Leon. Baruchel just fit the mold. “He’s a brilliant comic actor,” said Tierney of Baruchel. “He’s a physical comedian, which is very rare and very special, I think. But also beyond that, he’s a really really good actor and he’s vulnerable. He’s actually incapable of being false. Like there’s a truth that comes out of him that I really wanted for this guy, because I never wanted him to become a cartoon character.”
“The Trotsky” — which Tierney also directed — is his second feature film, but the Canadian filmmaker isn’t new to the screen. As a child actor, Tienrey, the son of writer and producer Kevin Tierney, appeared in popular TV shows including “Are You Afraid of the Dark.”
While the transition from child star to filmmaker wasn’t necessarily easy, he says it was a natural progression. ”The thing about movies, whether it’s a short or a feature or whatever, is that it’s a whole new project…you’re always starting from zero in one way,” said Tierney. “And when you’re a writer you’re literally starting from zero cause you’re looking at a blank page. So it’s not about being easy, but it was quite natural for me.”
As Tierney says, some scripts just “pour out,” but others take weeks or even months to perfect. “Writing is more alchemy than anything else,” he admits.
Tierney’s upcoming movie, “Notre Dame de Grace,” is in its editing stage. Starring Baruchel, Scott Speedman and Emily Hampshire, the film noir takes place during the winter leading up to the Quebec referendum in 1995. It focuses on three neighbours living in an apartment complex — one of whom is a serial killer.
Aside from that, he’ll be acting in his father’s directorial debut and is already working on adapting the book “A Good Terrorist” to the big screen.
But at the moment, he just hopes people enjoy “The Trotsky.”
“Honestly, this movie is a dessert,” says Tierney. “It’s a soufflé, you know, and people tend to leave the theatres smiling and that’s more than I could have ever hoped for”.
Who says that really good movies can’t be Canadian? Not Jay Baruchel, who not only is Canadian, but has been cast in a number of Hollywood movies (Knocked Up, Tropic Thunder, Just Buried to name a few). With a great Canadian cast lead by Baruchel, The Trotsky is both dramatic and comedic. We were on the red carpet premiere to find out more.
The latest from Canadian filmmaker Jacob Tierney tells the story of Leon Bronstein, an affluent Montreal teen played by Jay Baruchel (“How to Your Dragon,” “”She’s Out of My League), who believes he’s the reincarnation of socialist Leon Trotsky.
Most to-do lists consist of taking the dog to the groomer or mowing the lawn – not Leon’s. His list features the most important happenings of Trotsky’s life (including marrying a woman named Alexandra and getting assassinated).
After organizing a hunger strike at his own father’s company (played by Saul Rubineck), Leon is sent to public school. He sees it as an opportunity to engage the students in some good old fashioned activism and of course, he ends up on the principal’s bad side.
Movie goers can ultimately go into the movie without knowing much about Trotsky and still enjoy the comedy. Tierney, who also wrote the flick, does a good job of summing up Trotsky’s ideals without making the film seem like a two-hour history lesson.
After seeing Baruchel play Leon, it becomes impossible to picture any other actor playing the lead character. Aside from having the hair and the glassed down packed, Baruchel convinces in the part. Leon is extremely awkward and stubborn, but he makes the character likable.
Baruchel’s scenes with Emily Hampshire, who plays his much older love interest Alexandra (another Trotsky parallel), are often funny and engaging. Equally funny are Leon’s scenes with his step mom, played by Anne-Marie Cadieux.
“The Trotsky” could have shaved off 15 to 20 minutes. However, that can easily be forgiven because the movie’s concept is so creative that it’ll still keep you hooked.
He may be out of her league in a movie, but Jay Baruchel is definitely in the league of young, successful actors. He’s worked with Clint Eastwood in the multi Oscar-winning “Million Dollar Baby” and shared scenes with fellow Canadian Funnymen Seth Rogen and Michael Cera — and those are only three of his nearly 30 acting credits.
Earlier this year, Baruchel proved that a 5 can date a 10 in the comedy vehicle “She’s Out of My League.” Now, he has the No. 1 movie at the box office with “How to Train Your Dragon,” an animated 3-D movie he co-stars with a CGI fire-blower.
While he’s already accomplished a lot this year, let alone throughout his acting career, Baruchel hasn’t reached his ultimate goal — one that doesn’t involve comedy. The 27 year old hopes to direct horror films.
Although “Dragons” is far from a gory horror flick, Baruchel still had a blast making the animated movie. In fact, his character Hiccup is one of the closest characters to himself that he’s ever played. Even his mother was blown away by their similarities.
