New Trailer Online For Edgar Wright's The World's End
Mine's a pint of Edgar's Best Kaboom

22 May 2013  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

Most pub crawls have a sticky ending, one way or another. Some finish with fisticuffs, many with vomit, others with a mere killer hangover. But The World's End promises to take things to a whole new level with an apocalyptic outcome to the reunion of five old friends. You can see some of what we're in for in the new trailer below.

 

The film sees Simon Pegg as something of a failure in life, who sees a chance to recreate his teenage glory days by reuniting his old friends to complete the pub crawl they once abandoned. Only it turns out that their home town has changed in the years since they left: now it's crawling with what look very much like alien invaders. Uh. Oh.

The World's End stars Nick Frost, Eddie Marsan, Martin Freeman and Paddy Considine with Pegg as the central quintet of drinkers; Rosamund Pike plays Freeman's sister (and Pegg's old flame) and you'll see a few more familiar faces pop up in this trailer. Edgar Wright, of course, directs this finale to the Blood And Ice Cream trilogy.

The World's End is out in the UK on July 19.

yeah, ok, but...
it's a bit...samey? oh shit I hate saying that as a BIG Spaced fan and Shaun of the Dead was surreally brilliant. Hot Fuzz was good but didn't really engage me as much as Shaun did. Sorry everyone. It was great and a damn sight better than ANYTHING that Gervais bloke's ever managed to cough up on screen - but that's a whole other story. It's just that the main premise of this movie is 'we need to get to the pub before the monsters get us. And my ex girlfriend will be there (who's way to attra More

RE: Oh yes
L: paulmitchell The trailer before this didn't convince me,this one does,I loved hot fuzz and paddy wot sit face, greed this trailer is better, that said there was very little in the trailer that came across as particularly amusing, could be the end of the line for Peggy and Frost, Paul wasn't that funny.

So it's Shaun Of The Dead, only with robots instead of zombies and a few more pubs thrown in. Fuck it, why not, eh? More

Exactly the same feeling as you. Looks pretty uninspiring More

I have to say, it's so far not looking particularly funny or inventive. Still, I have extreme faith in these boys to make it special More
