Edgar Wright is one of the most talented filmmakers out there. So, when I first heard about The World’s End; I was pretty excited. Not only would it be a new film from Wright, it was also going to end his trilogy of films starring Nick Frost and Simon Pegg that started with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Since, I’ve been a fan of all those boys since Spaced, this film will be a bittersweet end to their “Blood & Ice Cream” trilogy. Along for the ride is, Martin Freeman, as one of the five friends who meet up at a pub, just as the fate of humankind is hanging on the balance. Check out the image and full synopsis below!
Here’s the official synopsis for The World’s End:
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 film stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Eddie Marsan, Paddy Considine, and Martin Freeman. The World’s End will be released in the U.K. on August 14, 2013 and in the U.S. on October 25, 2013.
