We don't have all the facts about 'The World's End' -- Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's latest genre-bending comedy -- but when these three team up, we don't really need to know anything (other than "When can I see it?!"). However, the latest quad poster for the summer comedy has arrived, and it offers some hints as to what we can expect.
For some 'Star Trek' fans, it was a slap to the face when director J.J. Abrams stopped going where no man has gone before and decided to journey to a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. How will they feel when they see Abrams discussing how great 'Star Wars' is with the chief engineer of the Enterprise, Montgomery "Scotty" Scott (aka Simon Pegg)?
We're about as excited for 'The World's End' as we are for any Edgar Wright directed film...meaning that we're excited about it a whole bunch. Like "if we could only see one movie in 2013, it would be this one." Thanks to some schedule changes, it looks like we'll get to see the latest from Wright and frequent collaborator Simon Pegg sooner than we expected.
The one problem with 'Star Wars Episode 7' news is that at least half of it going to be absolute bunk or inflated misinformation. Those that remember the years leading up to 'Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace' will recall the sheer amount of BS that flew over the then-young internet and how much of it was accepted as fact by fans. So let's take the rumor that director Alfonso Cuaron and beloved geek actor Simon Pegg are joining the 'Star Wars' universe with a pound or two of salt.
LAIKA, the studio that brought us the Oscar-nominated animated feature 'ParaNorman,' is reuniting with Focus Features for a new animated project called 'The Boxtrolls' and it sounds too cute. Are these guys the new Pixar?
What started with 'Shaun of the Dead' and continued with 'Hot Fuzz' will conclude with 'The World's End', the third comedy in Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright's so-called "Cornetto Trilogy." While the two lads will almost certainly collaborate on future projects, this is the end of a significant body of work for millions of film fans, to be sure. So let's celebrate with two new pictures and a unholy amount of beer, what do you say?
The world was supposed to end today (newsflash: it didn't) and yesterday we got a first look at one upcoming apocalyptic comedy, the Seth Rogen and James Franco film 'This Is the End.' Today we get our first official look at 2013's other apocalyptic comedy, the Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost film 'The World's End.'
'The World's End' reunites Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as they once again join forces to bring us a genre-bending feature and the culmination of a quasi-trilogy that includes 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz'. 'The World's End' a comedy that sees a pub-crawl and the end of the world duel for the attention of a group of tipsy friends.
'The World's End' poster has just been revealed which suitably imitates a pub sign while also foreshadowing a fiery end to the Earth. Check the whole poster out after the jump;, where you'll also find out when it's scheduled to hit theaters!
