The World's End Gets A New Release Date
Apocalypse sooner

23 April 2013  |  Written by Ali Plumb  |  Source: Twitter

Edgar Wright would like to ask you a question about his upcoming sci-fi comedy film, The World's End. A question concerning its release date, in fact, and whether you'd mind it being changed slightly...

Before this announcement, the world was expected to end (figuratively speaking) on August 13. Incidentally, this would have seen The World's End sharing cinema space with fellow British comedy Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa, which is aiming for an August 7 release.

The new date for The World's End has now officially been set for July 19 accordingly to Universal UK's Twitter feed. So what are you waiting for? Whip out your diaries and draw several circles around July 19 as soon as is physically possible - ideally in a nice big red biro (though be careful to not get any red on you). 

The film sees Pegg play a slacker who reunites a group of friends to finish the pub crawl they abandoned years ago. Unfortunately, they're interrupted by some sort of large-scale event marking the end of days. Which is even more of a downer than an ill-timed chunder in your evening plans.

For an in-depth guide to the gang, click here, and for a detailed infographic on how the cast know each other, click this way... Expect a trailer soon. Oh, and don't forget, The World's End is now out on JULY 19. Just to make that clear for you there.

Deja Vu
Sounds too similar to Shaun Of The Dead. I'd rather they moved on to something completely different. More

Fair competition, I guess
So instead of facing off against Disney's Planes, the film has decided to face off an opening weekend against Kick-Ass 2 and The Conjuring? A potentially good choice :) More

Universal must be switching the release dates of Kick Ass 2 with The World's End? More
