The first trailer for The World’s End, an apocalyptic comedy created by Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, has just been released. The film completes “The Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy,” following Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. The World’s End stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, and Eddie Marsan, and will hit theaters on August 23rd, 2013.
In The World’s End, 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King (Simon Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realise the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.
