Post-Mayan giggles are assured for 2013 with the release of both Seth Rogen's 'This is the End' and of course, the subject of today's post, Simon Pegg ('A Fantastic Fear of Everything') and director Edgar Wright's ('Scott Pilgrim vs. the World') latest comic venture to 'The World's End'. Pegg has tweeted the first image from the movie currently shooting in the UK and what with the talent involved and with a 'teaming-up' history of instant classics such as 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' we're confident that 'The World's End' is going to an apocalyptic hit. The main five friends who feature in the movie all pop up in the new pic played by five fantastic Brit stars including of course Simon Pegg, Nick Frost ('Paul'), Paddy Considine ('Dead Man's Shoes'), Eddie Marsan ('Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows') and Martin Freeman ('The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey'). Check out the new image below.
"20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell-bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town 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 World's End' arrives in UK theatres slap bang in the middle of the Summer season from 14 August 2013 whilst our American cousins will have to wait until 25 October 2013.
