A new UK teaser poster for Edgar Wright’s The World’s End featuring Nick Frost & Simon Pegg has been released. The third film in the “Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy,” The World’s End centers on five childhood friends who reunite after twenty years to repeat a legendary pub crawl from their youth, returning to their hometown to once again attempt to reach the fabled pub “The World’s End.” I’m a huge fan of Hot Fuzz & Shaun of the Dead and I think it’s about time we get our first trailer for this last installment. The World’s End also stars Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan, Rosamund Pike and opens on August 23rd.
20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.
