The twisted minds behind Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are back with The World’s End, the latest comedy from Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost. Pegg and Frost have already battled zombies and law breakers, and now they have to take on robots while just trying to finish up a pub crawl in their hometown. Coming to theaters on August 23, 2013, the cast also includes Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike.
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 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 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.
