Put aside your beans on toast this morning and check out a new full trailer for Edgar Wright's latest action-comedy "The World's End," starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in the third and last part of their supposed buddy-comedy trilogy. The film starts with Pegg trying to reunite his childhood friends to take part on an longtime quest to finish a drinking journey to twelve local pubs spread across their hometown.
Now that the fellas are nearing the end of their trek, they reach their final stop at a pub called The World's End. After some heavy boozing, the guys start to have an eerie feeling about the local patrons and town folk and come to realize that they are actually body-snatching aliens (well, more like, ink-bleeding robots!), and its now up to them to save the planet from getting annihilated.
"The World's End," co-stars Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike, and is scheduled to open in UK cinemas on July 19th, with a US opening on August 23rd.
Twenty 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
