The end of the world = partying ‘til you die! Both of these films center on what would happen at the end of the world and it turns out it involves lots of drinking and a surprising amount of laughs. It also shows some of the funniest people in the world between both films having to basically be action stars as they try to fight off the apocalypse in hilarious and shocking ways. The “world is ending” craze of 2012 may be to blame for the twin films. Plus the fact that Seth Rogen and co. clearly just wanted to make a fun movie together that brought in all of your fave comedic actors (and Rihanna!) in one film. Maybe that’s why it made way more money than the funny but more modest The World’s End!
