Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright‘s third film, The World’s End has its first trailer out and it looks to be another comedic blending of two film genres. Their first two movies, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are both great late weekend night movies.
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.
The five Pub Crawling friends are played by Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman and Eddie Marsan. Directed and co-written with Pegg by Wright, The World’s End opens August 23rd. You can check out the international teaser trailer below.
