This is the End

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, This Is the End, Columbia Pictures, 2013.


This Is the End is an American disaster comedy film. The movie plot mixes biblical apocalyptic elements with classic disaster movie memes.  This screen shot shows actor James Franco in a beam of light that will take him to heaven after he volunteers to sacrifice himself for the others but the beam drops him after he makes a lewd gesture to his friends, indicating that his sacrifice was not authentic. This action recalls the ethical model of Revelation.


Genuine; historically accurate.
