Fans of “Shaun of the Dead” have been waiting patiently for the conclusion to the trilogy of films from director Edgar Wright and his muses Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. After all, it’s been five years since the second installment, 2007’s “Hot Fuzz.” Now we not only have a firm release date for their final film “The World’s End,” we have a poster as well thanks to Fandango.
“The World’s End” — scheduled for a October 25, 2013 release — finds a group of friends in the midst of a pub crawl when an apocalyptic event occurs. As the official synopsis states:
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.
