UNCW in battle to bring special movie screening, stars to campus


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Students at UNCW are competing against other colleges in a unique contest. They are trying to win a visit from some famous comedians.

Students say they go to college to learn, but everyone deserves a little fun.

"This is the End" is not in theaters until June 12, but it is causing quite a buzz around campus.

Universities across the country are competing for a free screening of the movie and a visit from stars Seth Rogen, Craig Robinson and Danny McBride, who has filmed the HBO series "Eastbound and Down" in the area.

Students say they want to bring the campus together, and what better way than with some laughs?

UNCW is currently in second place behind the University of California at Santa Barbara trailing by around 30 votes. Students say they can win this if they spread the word.
