It’s time to raise a glass to Edgar Wright’s new comedy, “The World’s End.” Two new posters for the movie have hit the web that tease that the film will be about much more than just a pub crawl.
“One night. Six friends. Twelve pubs. Total Annihilation,” the tagline for the poster reads.
While the ensemble cast in this movie is at the center of both posters, we’re still very intrigued by the enemy creatures seen in the background. Are they aliens? Possessed humans? Some combination of the two? Whatever it is, be sure Wright is planning on topping what he did in “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” in this movie.
“The World’s End” stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan. It’s due in theaters on August 23. Check out the full plot synopsis below:
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.
