"Seeking a Friend For The End of The World," with Steve Carrell and Keira Knightley, opens today!


If the world was ending, who would you pick to spend your last days with?

Seeking a Friend for The End of The World asks just this question, but the answers are not exactly what you'd expect. As a 70-mile-wide asteroid hurtles towards Earth and society devolves into a chaotic free-for-all, a straight-laced insurance salesman named Dodge (Steve Carrell) and his extroverted neighbor Penny (Keira Knightley) are forced to confront this huge decision.

The pair join forces and go off on their last great journey — Dodge is in search of a long-ago love after the sudden dissolution of his marriage, and Penny is determined to reunite with her distant family.

Directed by screenwriter Lorene Scafaria (of Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist fame), this movie is guaranteed to make you giggle, cry and think. To celebrate its opening, we're presenting you with a killer Seeking a Friend For The End Of The World Twitter giveaway!
