THIS IS THE END Comes to Blu-ray This October

This is the End TNOn October 1st, everyone will be able to pick up a copy of one of the funniest films of the year.  This Is The End is a comedy that I was very much looking forward to and it really delivered (Review HERE).  The film pits James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson against the end of the world, while allowing them to riff off of each other, as they play exaggerated versions of themselves.  It was a highly entertaining, very raunchy comedy, and it had just a bit of sweetness to really make it all work.  Now, audiences will be able to get the full experience, as the Blu-ray appears to be packed with bonus content.  Continue on to learn more about this upcoming Blu-ray release.
