The apocalypse is all the rage at the multiplexes right now - from the end of days depicted in 'This is The End' to the zombie menace erupting in 'World War Z', we just can't escape the Earth's extinction. (And that's not mentioning the unthinkable destruction seen in 'Man of Steel'.) But, if we're all really going to get wiped out, it might as well be in the most amusing way possible - that's where Edgar Wright's 'The World's End' comes in.
A group of friends try to finish an epic pub crawl despite of an alien invasion.
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.
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.
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!
