Five Friends Reliving Their Past Will Fight For Mankind’s Future In Edgar Wright’s THE WORLD'S END
I’ve been a bit lagged at sharing the trailer for Edgar Wright‘s latest film, THE WORLD’S END, but I love the stuff Wright has to offer on film. Actors Nick Frost and Simon Pegg have always made for one of the most memorable comedic film pairings in cinema history, and I think it’s fantastic that they are constantly upping the antee with every film they are in together.
As such, I would definitely see this film on a night out with friends…followed by drinking, of course. Because the last thing anyone wants is a loud hysterical drunk in a movie theater. 😉
Director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite for a third film following the successes “Shaun of the Dead” (2004) and “Hot Fuzz” (2007). 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.
The film also stars Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike and is slated for North American release on August 23, 2013.
