The posters for Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg's The World's End have gone from showing a list of pub names to a single pub sign to the very same pub sign with a hole blown through it to these: explosion-filled, pint-raising, stool-wielding disasterpieces. This is a good thing.
The plot of the final part of the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy from Simon Pegg (writes, stars), Nick Frost (stars) and Edgar Wright (writes, directs) finds five childhood friends reuniting after 20 years because one of them – Pegg's 40 year-old Gary King, who refuses to grow up – is trying to drag his less-than-enthusiastic mates (Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Martin Freeman) on a recreation of an epic 12-venue pub crawl in their home town, which culminated at a boozer called The World’s End. That's apt, because this time it seems that the world may actually be ending.
With so many great names on board, it's easy to forget who's who in the world of The World's End, so if you'd like to know your Frosts from your Freemen, have a look at our character guide, as explained by Mr. Simon Pegg himself. Once you're done with that, be sure to have a look through our trailer breakdown and connections infographic too. And watch the new trailer below if only to see Martin Freeman's brilliant little head-nod-and-grin as he leaves the pub bathroom.
The World's End will arrive on July 19.
