Simon Pegg, Nick Frost & director Edgar Wright are back for the conclusion to the Cornetto trilogy with THE WORLD’S END! Check out the new trailer & poster from the upcoming comedy opening in theaters on Friday, August 23rd!

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.

    I can’t wait for this, have been waiting for it for a while now. I love “Shaun of the Dead” and almost any other work Pegg and Frost have done. The only exception was “Hot Fuzz”, which I really couldn’t sit through again after seeing it twice (and I’m honestly not sure what about it I dislike, it certainly had some great bits).

    I’ll watch it cause I’m not a fan of Seth Rogen. This instead of “This is the end.”

    So excited for this. It’s like you can see all the stuff Wright did on Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Scott Pilgrim really come together – the crazy, kinetic camera, the lightning-fast chop sockey, the loving reversals of standard genre tropes, and hilarious but utterly relatable characters.
