Edgar Wright might be getting ready to make Marvel’s Ant Man, but for the past several years, his fate has been tied to Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and the films that they’ve been making together: Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.
Now, they are back and they are bringing The Hobbit’s Martin Freeman and Rosmund Pike on a pub crawl that could decide the fate of the planet.
The World’s End opens in the U.K. on July 19th and in the U.S. on August 23rd.
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 mate Gary King, 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.
