‘The World’s End’ Poster: Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg Bring Us Total Annihilation
‘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!
The poster (via Fandango) sure is a tease; but then again, this film in general has been slow to reveal solid details. We know that it picks up 20 years after an epic pub crawl, as five childhood friends once again attempt the day-long drinking marathon. We know the destination of the group is the fabled pub ‘The World’s End’, which takes on ironic meaning when it looks like the end of the world is an actual possibility… But from what threat? How exactly is the planet in danger? As of right now, we’re in the dark.
We’ll just have to make do with this nifty teaser one-sheet – as well as the knowledge that Wright and Pegg will serve up a tasty concoction that lovingly subverts its genre while paying faithful homage to it. Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike co-star in the film, which is in theaters everywhere Friday, October 25th, 2013!
