Fans Say Star-Studded Apocalypse Movie Is One Of The Most Underrated Of All Time

People can't get enough of Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence movie Don't Look Up at the moment, but film fans are calling for us to give a little love to another star-studded apocalypse comedy from 2013. You can watch the trailer below (it contains some strong language):

Yep, cinephiles are saying Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg's This Is The End - which is available to watch on Netflix now - is an underrated gem and might be one of the best apocalypse films ever made.

It tells the story of a group of friends who struggle to survive when a series of catastrophic events destroy their city.

It's chock full of A-listers, including James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd, Kevin Hart, Channing Tatum, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Michael Cera and Craig Robinson - all playing heightened versions of themselves.

It even features Hermione Grainger herself: Emma Watson.

As if Emma wasn't enough, R&B queen Rihanna makes an appearance to slap Scott Pilgrim lead Michael Cera in the face at a house party.

This Is The End boasts an 83 percent critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, along with a 71 percent audience score.

One Twitter user said: "This is the End. The movie. I'm watching the movie. It's hilarious and just about everyone is in it."

Another said: "Watching This is the End & this movie f***ing hilarious every time."

In honour of Jonah Hill's 38th birthday, another Twitter user went so far as to claim it was the funniest movie she had ever seen.

She said: "This is the End is probably the most ridiculously hilarious movie I've ever seen."

Seth Rogen recently confirmed that Emma Watson walked off the set of This is the End, after refusing to shoot an improvised scene which she felt went too far.

The scene reportedly involved a cannibalistic Danny McBride holding Channing Tatum on a leash, with the latter wearing a leather gimp suit.

Rogen told GQ: "I think sometimes when you read something, when it comes to life it doesn't seem to be what you thought it was.

"But it was not some terrible ending to our relationship. She came back the next day to say goodbye. She helped promote the film. No hard feelings and I couldn't be happier with how the film turned out in the end."

Rogen later added on Twitter: "Emma Watson did not 'storm off the set' and it's s****y that the perception is that she did.

"The scene was not what was originally scripted, it was getting improvised, changed drastically and was not what she agreed to.

"The narrative that she was in some way uncool or unprofessional is complete bulls***."

You can stream This is the End on Netflix.
